Sunday Style: Black Sabbath

Pink and black has long been one of my favorite color combinations. On my 8th birthday, I can clearly remember running around in a bathing suit that was bright pink with black polka dots and a cute little peplum (for heaven’s sake, I’d wear that today). Recently I’ve had an insatiable craving for bright pink and satisfied it with this new Revlon nail polish and pink Clinique lipstick. Of course, a little pink goes a long way. What better to pair it with than all black!

Shirt: Nordstrom Rack | Tank top: Adea | Necklace: blue bijou | Leather skirt: Thrifted, Value Village | Tights: [somewhere] | Booties: Macy’s

In truth, after a rough week I was really dressing in black to match my mood. And I love the edge of leather, bright pink, and a faux hawk. Besides, dressing in black makes me feel like a Seattlite. (And according to my outfits page, I seem to wear more black than I realize…)

    Love this look! Hope you’ll give us short-haired gals some hints on achieving a similar style with our hair! I’ve always wanted to know how to do that!

    I love wearing black. Unfortunately, too much. I have been trying lately to expand my clothes by buying lots of colors. But I think from seeing your pictures that I need to get a black leather skirt. I have never had one and it looks absolutely beautiful on you!

    So good to hear from you Laureen! Black is such an easy default for so many of us. You might want to try buying grey, brown, or navy or even burgundy pieces as a close alternative to black in the future. Thanks for the kudos on the leather skirt! It was such a great find and I totally love it. Keep your eyes peeled for one!

    PS: SOOOO enjoyed our conversation!
