What do you wear when you don't know what to wear? For me, I always end up in black. It's easy, it's chic & it always looks good. I woke up one morning this week and just couldn't find the perfect outfit for the day, so naturally I ended up in this one & it actually turned out to be one of my favorite looks as of lately. I felt like a bad ass wearing it.

Wearing all black (or really any monochrome outfit) can look so chic but I do think there is a trick to making it look effortless and flattering.  For me, it's all about texture! I paired a fuzzy sweater with a chiffon top, leather pants, suede boots & a leather belt (shop all pieces below!). No two fabrics were the same which sounds like a lot, but in the same color, it very subtly allows each piece to stand out. 

Sweater: Forever 21 | Top: Express | Pants: Zara (old, similar) | Belt: similar | Boots: Steve Madden | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Sunglasses: Ray Ban

What are you all up to this weekend? 
I extended my long weekend (yay for Monday's off!) & took today off from work also :)
