Black on Black

It’s a beautiful summer day and all I can think about are all black outfits for fall. Black doesn’t have to be boring. Try mixing textures and lengths and creating interesting layers.

Delicate Jewellery

I don’t wear jewellery very often and the few pieces I do wear tend to all be very simple, delicate designs. I guess the truth is I’m just lazy. I don’t want to spend time thinking about matching my jewellery to my outfits but I do like that the right piece can take an outfit from average to amazing. Below are a few of the pieces I’ve been coveting recently.

Leather Shorts

I recently bought a pair of leather shorts from Zara. Ok, maybe not leather. Definitely pleather. But they do the trick.

It was one of those moments when you try something on and you happen to already be wearing the perfect outfit to match. Once I got them home though I realized I had no idea what else to wear them with so I’ve been scouring the web for some inspiration. I’m currently pairing them with crop tops and leopard print flats but I can’t wait to wear them with tights and ankle boots come fall.

Pinterest Patterns

I’ve recently discovered that Pinterest has use beyond encouraging me to buy more clothing I don’t need. I’ve been collecting pretty patterns, which is probably better for my wallet and my health than ogling clothing and food. It’s great inspiration for drawing and design and I find myself looking for beautiful and interesting details in unusual places. These are a few of my recent pins. You can follow me on Pinterest more.
