{outfit} Paint It Black

Before we get started with my outfit, there's some exciting news to share: The Outnet's Clearance sale starts today!  Shop over 2,000 pieces up to 85% off from your favorite designers including Lanvin, Balmain, Alexander McQueen and Isabel Marant. This is THE OUTNET event you can’t afford to miss, I always find great pieces to add to my closet! Since I'm doing the French Wardrobe Challenge I'm going to have to either get basics or find that one special item to be part of my "five" pieces.



I wore this outfit to work a few weeks ago (seen here) and decided it deserved it's own post.  I've done a few all black looks with skirts in the past, but I finally have jeans to do black the model off duty way. I like to imagine that if I were a model I'd walk around like this all the time. It was actually nice and warm when I was taking these photos (50 F) so I brought Layla out with me.  The last photo was supposed to be a full body shot but I thought I should zoom in because she looks funny in the background.

  10. Sometimes I find all black to be such a challenge! I love this look with the velvet blazer and the zips on the backs of the jeans.
