Happy Hump Day! 

When everything else in my closet is working against me (hello mood dressing), I turn to black. Easy and can’t really go wrong with a black outfit (black for the most part here). 

And that is when my favorite pieces, at the moment, don’t get a break…other than I-better-wash-it-because-I’ll-probably-wear-it-again-tomorrow kinda break.

That’s why outfit planning doesn’t really work for me…if I’m not in the mood for an outfit, which the night before sounded completely perfect, nothing can really make it work. 

Who else in a mood dresser?

    I'm in the same boat. I had a cute outfit planned for today but when I woke up to get dressed all of a sudden I hated everything I owned! Love the all black though. I love black, but I've never had the guts to wear it all at once, so I may have to try this out! :)

    All black and a grey hat = winter moody perfection. I'm a total mood dresser! When I am down, I wear darker colors. When I'm feeling awesome, I feel brighter colors. When I need confidence, I turn to power pieces!
