All black outfit for work or play

Hello beauties.  Happy weekend, beauties!! This was a busy week and yet I still feel like there’s stuff I need to do.  You know that feeling?? When there are NEVER enough hours in the day, week, month etc. lol.  I mentioned a while back that we are moving to a different county later in the year.  We need to list our current house so a huge part of my Friday evening was spent cleaning and taking care of final touches as the realtor is coming to take pictures so we can finally list.  LOL pray for us y’all as we were supposed to have listed in April! See what I mean when I say not enough time!

Anyhoo, SOOOO all black “errything” is the New Yorker’s uniform and it’s probably THE easiest monochrome look you can pull off any day, any time of year.  There are numerous benefits to an all black outfit:

  • It’s slimming
  • Black exudes premium and sophistication

In today’s post, I’m showing two very easy ways to pull off an all black outfit for work or play.  Very quick and easy tips:

  • Add a pop of color or nice neutral:

    • This can be done with your shoes or accessories just like I opted for yellow pumps.
    • You can opt for neutral shoes like a pair of nude pumps or sandals.
    • Another option is switching it up so your bag is say, a nice red or blue or even a nude/tan  bag.
  • Throw in some prints:

    • What I did here was rock an ankara/African print bag to add an additional burst of color
