Back to my roots today. XD
I've been experimenting with a lot of colors and patterns and textures recently, and loving being more adventurous with my style than I have been in the past. But, at the end of the day, I always come back to black. (Betcha didn't see that coming did you? ;)
People say black is dull, boring, plain, but what I've realized is that most people are so afraid of blending in by wearing black, that a completely black ensemble makes a statement without trying. Everyone else is in color. You cut a contrast.
Little Chanel-inspired block-heel flats and a fitted high-neck top gives me that Audrey Hepburn flair that is my go-to, especially in Autumn. I can't almost taste the croissants and coffee, smell the crisp air of a New York sunrise, and see the Tiffany's shop window...
(Seriously though, I wish I'd brought my coffee on this shoot because it was chilly! Unfortunately, it gets dark so early these days that I barely got these shots in without a coffee break...;)
No pop of color needed, no statement necklace or statement jewels: just all black errrthang, in really simple wardrobe staples. Because simple is rare these days.
There's nothing that makes me feel more empowered, or honestly, more like myself.
Also like a ninja. Because ninjas are cool. XD
