black is never boring

As my dear friend, Cee, of Coco & Vera always states... black is never boring! And I couldn't agree more, especially, when paired with elements like a bold red lip, black fedora and distressed denim for added interest! And I must say, I'm especially proud of this outfit... because I basically wore the same thing here and the two looks couldn't be further apart!

Proof that great accessories can help re-invent any outfit. This week, I've also felt the itch to shop, shop, and shop. Partly because I've been going to PR meetings for the blog/events and feel like I need the perfect wardrobe to make a great and lasting impression. But instead, I'm attempting to refrain and keep my eye on the prize + remind myself to not impulse shop so I can ultimately curate the right kind of wardrobe! So, my solution?!

Shopping my closet, of course! If you've ever wondered what that process looks like? Basically, I use a "no rules" method and try on new combinations of tried & true favourites, and focus on mixing up patterns, colours and silhouettes. Then I pick one fabulous accessory, be it a hat, scarf, statement necklace, a pop of red lipstick, or a new hair style! So, what's the verdict friends! Do you love to shop your closet? And if so... what works best for you?!! xo
