Today is the third day of my Black is Chic Challenge and I'm feeling gooood. I'm happy that I managed to wear this black top and still add my signature "use-a-lot-of-colors" by adding the skirt, shoes, and purse. Plus, the detail on this top is just fabulous!

Today I noticed that the trees are starting to turn orange, it must be Fall!!

It sure doesn't feel like Fall though because the weather is still very warm. Well, I'm going to keep taking advantage of the warm weather to wear summer clothes and shoes!

Are you still holding on to summer or are you embracing Fall when it comes to your outfits?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this black top:

  1. I love this outfit!

    I am trying to hold on to summer a little longer which, kind of contradicts this theme week I'm going to do next week but, o well...

  2. Considering it's still 90 degrees here in Orlando, I can't help but hold on to summer. If I try to embrace fall, I'll sweat to death.

    This is a great outfit, you look gorgeous as always!

    So I have an idea for your next challenge. You're doing this black one because you usually wear a lot of colors, but how about a week of dressing in monochrome colors? One day all purples, one day all blues, one day all greens, etc. I'd love to see how you'd style that trend!

  3. I love how you're not afraid to mix up these colours! And I really could learn how to wear green from you, I'm always a bit hesitant with that colour lol:)


  4. Thanks for all the comments everyone!

    I love your challenge idea Melissa! It actually fits well with a challenge I had in mind, so I will definitely do it! Thanks!
