Black, Black Summer

I recently discovered why I hated wearing all black even though, it goes without saying, black is my favorite color and I thought all black ensembles looked good on anyone else but me. It’s my hair. When I had shorter hair all natural brunette, all black outfits completely washed me out. Now that I have blonde tips falling on my shoulders I suddenly don’t hate it anymore. And with Montreal’s chilly, breezy summer I think a black, black summer is ahead of me. . Black tee Zara (similar here & here) . Charcoal midi skirt Zara (similar here & here) .

Run Right Back

No matter how much and how frequently I announce that I will never wear heels again unless there’s a cocktail or wedding or something, I always find myself giving in at some point but this time I had my reasons. I shouldn’t need a reason anyway, pumps are better friends with a 5’3″ girl than diamonds,  a beautiful pair of Alexander Wang suede Marcelia heels that were waiting to feel loved since this winter are the best friend. It’s finally time. . Light grey cotton shirt Urban Outfitters (similar here & here) . Charcoal harem pants Aakasha (similar here & here) .

The Black Swan

The title is just a bad pun referencing the return of the ballet flat, something I haven’t worn since 2010, but this time coming in pointed toes and sturdier than ever. I totally forgot how good they looked with everything and how long and thin they made my legs look, like no other shoe can do. I don’t know how long their reign is going to last this time but for now, we are happy to be reunited. . Striped top H&M (similar here & here) .

See You Later Gladiator

So Montreal literally skipped spring and decided to go cannonball in summer, making all my lightweight coats and mercerize sweaters useless – well not all useless, they are good at keeping my waistband company. And all that sandal overload I made when it was too cold to even dream about wearing them has just started to pay off. All weekend long I wore ballet flats with bare legs, sandals with pants and of course, Converse at some point because well who am I without them? .

Pinafore Attire

I am not a good DIYer, per se, but I am somewhat good at repurposing old stuff and changing them into better, trendier versions of themselves. Case in point; I added the unused strap of a black sandal to my already existing slingbacks, turning them into something a bit more elegant and relevant. Finding the midi pinafore dress that would go perfectly with the “new” pumps was pure luck. . Black midi pinafore dress Vintage (similar here & here) .
