My mother said something while we were at The NoMad Hotel (to see The Magician… UNBELIEVABLE, by the way) that really got me thinking.
“We’re the ones who look like actual New Yorkers because we’re all in black.” (In reference to me, her and my sister.)
And I know this is just a stigma, because obviously New Yorkers do, in fact, wear color (seen here). But then I wear outfits like this, and I realize how comfortable I feel in it. I never used to be a fan of the all black look. Until I realized how easy it was. And how chic it could look.
When I received these boots (obviously needed to get the rose gold metal), I knew I wanted to wear it with all black….mostly because I wanted to look like a badass – and in my head I did 😉 They were definitely a splurge for me, but I justified it as a Christmas present to myself (and a gift to myself for working hard in 2015). I have to say, I love them. They’re comfortable and edgy without being too over the top.
Here is a similar pair if you’re interested!
Now that it’s definitely freezing in New York City (Editor’s *mean* Note: As you’re reading this, I’m on my way to Mexico.), I’ll more than likely throw this scarf around my head. And of course wear this crazy (and surprisingly) warm jacket too!
