CLASSIC BLACK







 Happy last day of January!

When I was a young, twenty-something mom, I still remember a conversation of women saying, "I can't wear that anymore. I'm too old!" I think they were talking about a pair of jeans, but either way it made an impression on me that I would always stay true to myself by wearing what I liked!

I love this black, lace skirt I got at a boutique last year. It's kind of classic and, like some things, I don't see giving it to goodwill in the next few years. Writing this blog, I had to think back when I got this coat! Wow, it was 8 years ago at Kohl's, but I love it just as much now as when I bought it! If I'm buying something I know I won't wear a ton, is seasonal, or is on the pricier side, black is a good, safe color to stick with! I go through my closet and give stuff away 2-3 times a year, but the items that keep sticking around are the black ones! So when in doubt, buy black!

What are your thoughts on staying true to your style? I'd love to hear from you!

XOXO,
