Fall Back on Black

On days when wardrobe inspiration escapes me (as it does many mornings now that I’m waking up earlier and getting dressed while I’m still half asleep), I find that there’s no better fix than basic black on black. Here are a few pieces that have wound up in my Shopbop hearts of late…
I love the plunging pussybow blouse but it’s the leather collar on the blazer that has my heart skipping a beat. That kind of detail for just $115? I think I know where my next paycheck is going!
Tulip hem or maxi length? Take your pick!
I’m kind of obsessed with this envelope clutch and gorgeous platform heel. They’d make even a t-shirt and jeans insanely chic!
But of course I saved the best for last. You know I love a backless dress!

What’s your go-to when getting dressed? I’d love to hear your tricks for dressing quickly and stylishly!

  1. My tip is to develop a wardrobe of classic basics in fairly neutral colors that can be mixed easily. That way, it may not matter as much if you mistake your brown shoes for your black shoes in the morning. 🙂

  2. a girl after my own heart … i have just recently (lots of changes when you turn 30) started branching out with color – but I will always have a small love affair with my little friend, Black. that maxi skirt is delish!

  3. That clutch is beautiful. It would go wonderful with a hot pink shirt?

    I always try to envision my mood or dress for what I’m doing that day. If I’m not doing anything, you probably could find me in work-out attire.. it’s a bad habit 🙂

  4. wow – that blazer – i’ve been wanting a leather jacket but it’s just SO out of my price range – might have to get this as a happy medium!
    the dress is STUNNING! love me a backless dress, too 🙂

  5. Great picks! I’m wearing black as we speak and totally agree that on mornings where you’re half asleep, black is the way to go.
