All Black Everything

It’s Wednesday! Hope you’re all having a fabulous week!
I used to be incredibly self conscious wearing shorts, which is why 99.9% of the time I’m in skirts and dresses. I’m only 4’11, but I’m pretty sure I have the biggest hips on the planet. So for me, wearing shorts is a big deal and I’m incredibly proud of myself for wearing shorts on my blog again. I’m not saying I feel totally confident yet, but I’m trying to step out of my comfort zone and since joining the gym I’ve started to feel really good about myself. 

Lately I’ve had the urge to shop, maybe it’s because of all the Fall & Holiday previews being released. During one summer Friday, I decided to step into Express. I’m not usually a big Express shopper, to be honest I almost never go in, but after seeing the fabulous black and white midi skirt on Kate Upton in their fall ad, I wanted to check them out. I was not disappointed, they have so many amazing things in stores, and they had an even more amazing sale going on. Oddly enough everything I tried on and everything I bought was black. If you know me, you know I love color and I definitely don’t steer away from neons. But, ever since moving back home to New York and working in fashion I’ve definitely embraced black more.  
As I was shopping I promised myself I would not buy any summer items since I wanted to save for Fall…of course, I bought shorts and a tank, but to be honest I feel like I can transition all of these pieces. The shorts would look amazing with some tights and booties, I can layer the tank under a cardigan and scarf and the cardigan itself has an amazing leather detail. So I have no regrets!

    Thank you so much! I didn't realize how much I loved all black looks until I see how many times I've featured them on the blog. Great blog btw. Love the pink dress you recently posted and the backdrop is breathtaking!
