Jeans: Gap, DSTLD | Purse: Kate Spade [Similar] [Similar] | Shoes: Nordstrom [Similar], Target

People argue that black isn't a color. Well, to me it is, and it's my favorite one of them all.

If I had it my way, I would wear all black, all day, every day. But I simply do not have enough black to fulfill that wish. That doesn't mean I am not 100% obsessed with all black everything... because I am.  Black looks good on everyone, it flatters every body shape, and is always safe and trendy yet classy. Just everything, okay? 😉 On that note, I wanted to share a few of my favorite black pieces that I've been wearing non stop!

1. Distressed, high-waisted skinny jeans

For being on the curvier side, black is the most flattering bottom on me. I have absoltely been loving black skinny jeans, especially high-waisted ones because they're just so dang comfy [and trendy] so it's a win-win in my book! My #1 all-time favorite pair is from Gap. [You heard me, GAP!] I bought a pair of high-waisted jeans there a few months back, and absolutely fell in love with the fit. I have a small waist, wide hips and curvy thighs, so my struggle has always been finding high-waisted jeans that fit my butt/thights, but are still tight at the waist and ankles and let me tell you: GAP IS THE ANSWER! I now own every. single. color. of this style and I'm offically obsessed.

Another pair that I just got are from DSTLD! They're high waisted, SUPER comfy and stretchy, and the distressed design is super different and unique - more of a "slit" pattern instead holes like the Gap ones. So far, I've been loving them and they are quickly moving up to the top of my list of faves!!

2. Platforms

I'm a 90s child so anything that has a platform or reminds me of Spice Girls is an automatic win. I love that platforms have cycled back to being super trendy... really for no other reason than the fact that they're so fun! My absolute favorite that I've been wearing non-stop are these platform booties! They're super affordable, comfortable and trendy - what more could a girl ask for?!

I've also been loving these black leather platform sneakers! How cute, right? I picked these up late spring and have been the perfect throw on for any occasion shoe ever since! They're also perfect for bascially all of the seasons, so I know I will be wearing them well into fall!

3. Leather purse

I got this purse probably 2 years ago now, and I use it ALL the time! It's so cute, durable, and just the right size to fit your essentials for a night on the town. I love the textured black leather and the chain detail that keeps it casual and trendy. If people used the term "holy grail" for accessories, this would be one of mine 😉

So there's my current black list for ya! Like I said, you can never go wrong with black clothes, shoes or accessories because it's just a perfect, flattering, trendy yet classic non-color color [hehe]. Shop all my faves below and have an awesome day love bugs!
