Why to Wear Black – Instagram Round-Up VO 3

True life: I can’t stop wearing black!

This week’s instagram round up is lacking in color, but here is why I think black is always a good idea!

  1. The number one reason why to wear black is one we are all familiar with, it instantly slims you, making you feel sexier and more confident.
  2. If you are a klutz like I am, no worries! Black won’t show any of those lunch stains πŸ˜‰
  3. You look sleeker and more put together. Even if you are just wearing a black t-shirt, black jeans, and black booties…something about the all black look that makes you look like you tried more than you did.
  4. You don’t have to worry about matching pieces. When I am lacking time, black on black is a go-to.
  5. You can transition your bright accessories on an all black look and let them pop. I also love doing a bright lip on an all black look.
  6. It’s timeless, and never goes out of style. If you are choosing to invest in pieces, go for the black shade.

What I Wore

August 26th


It was my friend’s bachelorette party that weekend, and we spent the night in Atlantic City NJ. She actually asked her bridesmaids to wear black, but I was going to anyway. I had this blazer blouse since last new years from forever 21, but decided to wear it as a dress and pair it with envelope shorts. No one could even tell it was separates from the front, so it worked perfectly. I finished with a sleek pony and pointed pumps.

September 2nd


On this day we celebrated my friend’s engagement at her bridal shower. Everyone showed up in summer dresses, and I showed up in black LOL. It’s been feeling like fall in Jersey already, so I been grabbing a lot more black lately, but I loved the feminine embroidery and sleeves on this top and still thought it was perfect for the occasion. I paired it with dark wash jeans and black strappy sandals from zara. I put my hair up, which I like to do with a high neckline to open up my face, and added a velvet scrunchie to dress up the bun.

That night…


That night, I celebrated my 29th birthday. A few friends and I went to a latin restaurant/lounge where they treated me to an amazing dinner, and then we danced everything from salsa to hip-hop. It was a great night with my closest friends. I wore wide leg pants that I did NOT have to get hemmed (SAY WHAT) this like never happens! I was so excited to find these at a local boutique. I wore it with a velvet tube top and pointed pumps from zara.

That sums up this Instagram round-up. I can’t promise you’ll see much more color from this point on. Fall has creeped in, and I couldn’t be more excited! Let me know which look was your favorite πŸ™‚ I hope everyone had a great labor day weekend!
