There’s certainly something to be said about how wonderful it is to sometimes wear an entirely black outfit. Black is classic, flattering, and it’s always in style. As Christian Dior once stated so well, “Black is the most slimming of colors. It is the most flattering. You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You could wear it for almost any occasion. I could write a book about black.” It’s always fun to experiment with this season’s colors and patterns, but never forget to take a breather once in a while and return to the best color of all: black. xx

The other day I came across a blog photography advice blog. She made sure to note that in most fashion blogs, nobody smiles! I do have to agree that this is true. Although I personally love the look of a serious face on fashion blogs, I thought I’d try it out! It can’t hurt to actually smile for the camera once in a while! Comment and let me know what you think!
As for the outfit, I went simple and all black for a day in Napa Valley. Who says that wearing all black is bad? xx

So I think we’ve established that my go-to combo is jeans and a basic t-shirt. But isn’t everybody’s “go-to” some derivation of that? It’s easy to sometimes think that your “go-to” is getting boring. Well I can confidently say that it probably isn’t, but if you’re still worrying (which I do often) here’s a tip. If you’ve run out of ideas on how to put a twist on an outfit, sometimes the freshest version of a basic combo is the basic combo, and nothing else. Today’s style can sometimes be a whirlwind of different patterns, embellishments, and more. Though these aspects are wonderful, it doesn’t hurt to just keep it simple for a day. For my outfit, I paired my comfy H&M Boyfriend Jeans with my new favorite Zara tee, (highly recommend both!) my extra comfy Brandy Melville sweater, and pulled on my trusty converse. Just remember that the most successful outfits are the ones you’re comfortable in!
