In an attempt to stick to my New Year’s resolutions I’ve finally embraced black on black into my wardrobe. I know it sounds strange but I’ve always been immediately drawn to colour, prints or lighter shades. Basically anything that isn’t black. I always reasoned with myself ‘Why wear black and blend into the crowd when you can have so much more fun with colour?’. I guess my biggest reasoning for embracing black is that it is, and always will be, timeless. It’s the epitome of chic and after such a long haul flight to Florence chic is exactly what I needed. I wore this during the day with yet another affordable and fuzzy mammoth coat and styled my new favourite top with this fitted pencil skirt (that looks better in real life) and wine lipstick for a darker and more edgier look for the evening. Me… being edgy? Perhaps it’s the dawn of a new era. Who knows, I might even purchase my first pair of track pants (these would make more sense on flights than my leather pants) or light blue jeans.
