Wardrobe resolution #3: Wear more black.

I must admit that I’ve never been that darling to the color black. Yep, you heard me. I always adored it as an accessory, but never as a basic. However, if you go spend a summer in Paris (as I did this past summer in 2014) or follow Parisian fashion —you too will find your own obsession with dressing in black (like the French, of course!). I can’t wait to see where this new wardrobe resolution takes my style in 2015.

While the cat’s out of the bag, I’ll admit that I’ve never styled a poncho either. But the moment I laid my eyes on this plaid darling by Necessary Clothing, the infatuation began. Ponchos are great for two reasons: 1. They’re stylish and extremely flattering and definitely “in” right now, 2. Ponchos are c-o-m-f-o-r-t-a-b-l-e, flexible, and give you all the room in the world to run, jump, stretch your arms out and breathe. I wore this outfit out for a drink last Sunday with my bro-tagrapher and mum—and I already can’t wait to strut it again. It’s perfect for a casual night on the town, or for a dressed up happy hour. You choose! Scroll down for my darling links and clicks! Xo

    We apparently have the same resolutions. I want to wear more black this year too. Love this cape. I picked up a lovely black cape from H & M while in Mexico. I can’t wait to photograph it. LOVE YOURS.


  2. I love this poncho AND the bag! I used to think black was boring, but now I think it’s classic, sleek and timeless. I love it.
