Would it be terribly auld wan of me to say I can’t believe its “Friday Style” time again? The weeks are flying by; it’ll be Christmas before you know it. Right, with that little rant over, let’s move on to today’s outfit. I don’t often wear head to toe black because it can be a bit harsh on my pale Irish skin tone, navy would be more forgiving. Also black can be a bit boring, I like colour but I do appreciate how chic and versatile black can be. A change of shoes and accessories is all that is needed to take a black blouse and black skinny jeans from work, to meeting friends for lunch, to a night on the tiles. Let’s not forget the obvious, it’s slimming.
This top is another great find from Penneys. I think this looks way more expensive than Penneys and I even think the material has a lux feel to it. The cream piping is a nice bit of interesting detail adding to the lux feel of it but it also draws the eyes in a vertical direction adding to the slimming effect. This is a gorgeous blouse that could be worn so many ways.
The jeans are my old faithful super soft skinnies from Dorothy Perkins.
The boots are also from Penneys. They are faux suede, slouchy knee high boots. Unfortunately they are few years old and I love them so much that I have a second pair stashed in the back of my wardrobe waiting to replace these if they ever fall apart; I had to have a back up. Keep an eye out because I think Penneys had the same ones again a few months back.
The necklace is from Carraig Donn. It’s been all about large statement necklaces that sit at the collar bone for a long time now but a long pendent can be really glam too. This one is a lovely rose gold with pearls and a filigree heart. I think it’s gorgeous.
Are you a regular wearer of head to toe black, or do you prefer to mix it up?
