A Touch of Color
In today's look, I'm wearing my favorite black jeans, favorite white blouse, favorite ankle boots (at the moment), and favorite moto jacket! You can't go wrong with an outfit built of great basics, but as chic as black and white are as a color combination, I don't feel like quite myself without a bit of color. Normally my M.O would be to throw on a colored bag, but I've been loving my Céline mini belt bag way too much lately. Ironically, black looks so good with nearly every color, but, in my opinion, looks a bit dull when paired with itself. Adding an element with a great print always works to liven things up quickly. I added a floral touch to my outfit by using a poncho/shawl thing that I got from Urban Outfitters as a scarf. A scarf is perfect for the weather lately, but when it's too hot, a small colorful accessory such as a bag charm or a scarf tied to the bag can work wonders too.
