Black Is Not Always A Good Idea

December 21, 2015

I know, black is always a good idea and I’m the first one thinking easyeffortless; then wear black. But I eventually ended up by thinking: black is not always a good idea. Let me explain why.

The thing is, when I’m looking for some inspiration for a a Christmas outfit, it’s ALWAYS black. Usually, for a Christmas diner your won’t wear neon or very flashy colors, but more dark colors or sparkling clothes. I’ve racked my brain (not that much actually haha), and wanted to add originality for a Christmas attire by choosing a Klein blue dress. Almost at the opposite of red, sometimes I learned my lesson!!

By the way, no bag needed because your boyfriend, the sweetest gentleman ever, has to carry your stuff, and he will be very happy to give a hand. With a lot of love, of course! 🙂

On a side note: The nice and pleasant temperature never seen as high for the month of December, did not prevent me from not wearing a jacket! And I haven’t caught any cold!! #EmojiSick

PS: Black is not always a good idea. I repeat: black is not always a good idea.

    This was such a cute and fun read, Violette! I love your tone throughout the post, so fun with a lot of truth; black is not always a good idea! I tend to reach more for colors all year round because I feel it excites me more and just gives off great energy. I also love wearing black in combination with brighter or richer colors or bold details, but it’s not one that I find myself wearing a lot of. With that, I love your cobalt blue dress and the way you’ve styled it here. That leather jacket is perfection and I’m simply swooning over those fringed boots! Great styling as always, beautiful 🙂 I hope you have a lovely day and week ahead!
