Yup, blackout. In more ways than one.
These last few weeks have been particularly draining, exhausting, and borderline overwhelming, for all sorts of good and bad reasons, but I am finally coming back to life with some energy and motivation. If you noticed my absence (and better yet, missed it…) know that I appreciate that so very very much. I’m now ready to take on 2017 (even if it took me a few twenty extra days to do so).
Now let’s get into what I like to do here.
What led me to this look was not only a desire to go black from head to toe, but the doubling up of loose layers. Underneath this drape front jacket was my favorite swing top. Its high low proportions played well under the jacket, and the long sleeves made a semi-belled accent pop out underneath the tight fitting sleeves. Those elements and details made both of these over-worn pieces feel like new. In times like these, that is all I need.
