If you looked at my closet a year ago, you would've found three black pieces of clothing... total. I don't have a good reason why I shied away from this shade in the past, but now I'm in love. Wearing an all black ensemble is a simple way to feel powerful and elegant. For such an unassuming color, black demands your attention without being obnoxious about it.

The small details on this shirt, like the quilted sleeves and the side zippers, add some texture to an otherwise minimal look. These Aldo boots are versatile enough to polish off a casual look or dress down a blazer. I love the subtle sheen of these black jeans from Zara. When all pulled together, I have an urban look that's ideal for a day of shopping through The Pearl District.
There's nothing like a major life change, like moving to a new city, to help inspire a change in your personal aesthetic. I'm so happy to be beginning with black.
