Back to Black

Clouds roll in and the black comes creeping out of my closet. No matter what season, black is always acceptable, and today was the perfect excuse to pull on my favorite black moto jacket.  Black is so effortless and classy, but I dressed it down with these acid wash DIY shorts, giving the ensemble an edgier vibe. To complete the look I grabbed my new Jeffery Campbell cutout ankle boots and slipped them on. I must say, I have no complaints about these shoes, they're super comfortable and look just like the Balenciaga ones! I decided to change it up accenting the black with silver, and added a silver chain.  Although you could add a bright lip, adding a pop, I decided to keep it minimal with nude, giving a clean look while not taking attention away from the outfit. Who knew black made my hair look ombré?
