Black & mint

Sweater: H&M, Skirt: Brigitte, Boots: Deichmann, Bag: Galeries Lafayette, Necklace, rings and earrings: Forever 21, Bow hair clip: Orsay, Bracelets: Asos

I think I already mentioned here, that a few years back I went through a very intense black period in my dressing. My closet was full of black turtlenecks, black pants, black everything. I think it's understandable that I don't really like seeing photos from that time anymore. For the past few years I've made a conscious effort to eliminate all-black outfits from my wardrobe, only keeping a few of the most classic and timeless pieces. This skirt is one of them. You may remember me wearing it here and here. But whenever I wear black these days, I always pair it with bright colors, soft pastels or at least with other neutrals.

With the dramatic drop in temperatures these past few days, opaque tights are a must, and they always have to be black: I'm firmly convinced that colorful tights only look good on Blair Waldorf, no one else! What is your take on wearing black? Do you wear it often? And what do you think about an all-black outfit?


Side note: I don't usually run around sans coat in December, I just purposefully lost my faithful red coat for this photo shoot.

  10. Hahahahaha, I know your feelings towards black, I had my goth phase and now I only wear it on certain occasions and trying not to look too goth.
    But when it comes to coloured tights, I must disagree with you, I think anyone can pull them out depending how they style them, I have millions of different coloured tights and I love them!! <3

  20. That skirt is definitely a keeper. You look so lovely, Ivana! I'm in love with your smile. (:

    Anyway, I do love the chic vibe that black and mint give off. The black makes it look so much more classy! Yet I love pairing my mint tops with more light colors as well - like a rose pink maxi skirt, cream lace shorts or light-wash denim jeans (my favorite... can you say COMFY?) It gives off a very girly and feminine sort of vibe. I love pretty pastel colors, like mint!

    Lovely post, as always! x
