Fifty Shades of Neutral

I am such a fan of mixing neutrals. Sure, I love wearing all black, but I find exciting to mix in other colors to an otherwise all monochromatic outfit. It might look all black from far away, but up close it's dark neutral colors mixed together. It's all in the details after all!

On this day I decided to style this midi dress with my favorite black crop boots. OK, this is where I started having some fun with this look. I added a gorgeous denim jacket for pops of dark blue (and please note the dark blue nails..because blue is the best!). Next up, I added these dark green Zac Posen sunglasses & my go-to brown bag. In the end what seemed like an all black look was really black, green, blue.

The gold hardware on my boots and bag made from a jumping off point for my jewelry. I added a simple long gold necklace and a few rings and was good to good for dinner out with the family. 
This look felt put together even though it took me about 15 minutes to get dressed and dash out the door. I love outfits that look like they took way more time to put together then they actually did!
