“Neutral” Dilemma

Of all the neutrals, black is probably my least favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I love black, but sometimes it can look really harsh when accessorizing. Take today’s outfit for example. As a result of not planning and preparing my work clothes the night before, I had to just go with the flow this morning. I also woke up late, so I didn’t have much time to be creative. I was juggling this outfit in my head earlier this week, but never really tested it before executing. There was no time for trial and error, so I got up, got dressed, and headed out the door. (I showered and what not of course! lol) The main purpose of the colors that I chose was to complement my black and white print jacket. As I mentioned before, I love pieces in a black and white print. Even though it’s an overly popular combination, my favorite color to pop it with is red, but every now and then, I use a different color. Today, I used my plum skirt. Unfortunately, to me, the black opaque tights plus the black top plus the black shoes were just a lot of BLACK. So, at the last minute, I threw on this scarf to lighten things up. Not quite what I had in mind, but it worked!

Keeping it Classy,

    o i love black, but i totally hear what you are saying. i think grey is another great neutral that goes with everything but is less severe than black.
