Blackout

Back in November I went to Target (probably for the third time that week), and like anyone who goes to Target looking for one thing, I left with WAY more than I intended. Among those items were two of the pieces that make up this incredibly comfortable outfit: the wide-leg jumper and the silver toe ankle boots.

It was taking forever to find overalls that suited me right, and this was the first thing I saw when I walked in the store. The mid-length wide legs and the lightweight fabric sold me immediately. The ankle boots caught my eye as I was walking out of the dressing room and fam, let me tell you, these shoes were on sale ON TOP of a clearance. HOW?! I don't care, but ya damn right I purchased them. These beautiful foot babies were made by Mossimo, and I kid you not, they are so comfortable. No doubt, one of my best shoe investments ever. The pointed toe, thick heel, and silver accent make it a perfect balance of classy and casual. I can wear these things with almost any outfit (and trust me, I do).

Underneath the jumper I wore my black long-sleeve crop top from H&M. This is such a simple article of clothing, but the details give it so much character. Vertical ribbed textures are slimming (which is great considering it's a crop top) and there's a silver zipper closure at the back of the neck. Although the shoulder cutouts were enough to make me freeze to death, they're my favorite feature, along with the short turtleneck. When it comes to all black outfits, remember to use different textures that compliment one another! 

Dark lips are my go-to, no matter what time of year it is. Since the entire outfit was black, I decided a deep red would suit the look.  ColourPop Cosmetics is my number one recommended brand when it comes to lip products, and this is their ultra matte liquid lipstick in "Avenue". Keep a look out for a post on my love for Colour Pop on my Favorites page!
