My Style: Styling Black on Black

Hi friends! Long time no see ;) I thought with all my talk about the K.I.S.S. philosophy in my wardrobe, I should share an example of one of my favorite outfits. It fits all my criteria: versatile, simple, comfortable and still stylish. I reach for this outfit time and again, as it really works for any and all occasions. So here is my K.I.S.S. mentality live in action!

When wearing all black, it is key to mix textures to add visual interest. I have on simple cotton leggings, and have paired it with a silk blouse with pocket and button detailing, as well as a pair of textured black flats from Christian Siriano for Payless Shoesource. Hopefully you can get a glimpse of the detailing on them in the photo below.

Can you see the textured detailing? It has a crosshatch look to it that I really love. These have been so perfect and comfortable. The pointed toe is exactly how I like it, still a bit rounded. There is a slight heel, and the cut is just right (don't you love a little toe cleavage? I do!) These shoes also come in taupe, which I am considering buying for spring.

When I picked up the shoes I was also drawn to this Christian Siriano "Iris Shopper". I had been using my black bag with braided straps all fall, and while I loved the style, the large bucket shape really was a bottomless pit. I had to keep rummaging around inside to find my things. This bag is a bit smaller, but is wider and more structured. There is ample room for my necessities, and there is no more lost cell phone, keys or lipstick at the bottom of my bag!

The print is what really sold me; black and white (of course!) with a unique lace style print. The straps are a great length to throw over your shoulder, and the gold zipper detailing makes it look much more expensive than it is! It is another great piece that adds texture and interest to an all black outfit.

The Christian Siriano line is perfect for staying stylish while on a budget. It's one of the first things I check for when in Payless (well, after new athletic shoes for my girls, you know, mom life). You can view his full line of shoes and accessories right here. Let me know your faves!
