Monday Mingle: TSF Favorite, Wearing All Black


In looking through the past few months post…I noticed a theme of all black.  Ironically there was a time, I would have never styled an all black look….thinking it was too dark and non-matching.  Now, when I am pressed for time it is the first thing I gravitate towards, knowing it is chic and uncomplicated.  The style tip for today is adding in something interesting in the way of your accessories.  For example, a pop of red with a lip and shoe, a camo cap, bright colored bag, or something as simple as a fabulous gold cuff.  Keeping it simple but still making it your own.

How about you?  Do you rock the all black trend?  If not, maybe I have nudged you a little closer to trying it out!





Monday Mingle is the stylish collaboration between myself, Kristin of BonBon Rose Girls and Nicole of Momtrends.  I hope that you will share what you have been wearing with #MondayMingle this week.  Style link is below.  We are so happy to have you.  Be sure to pop by and visit all the fabulous women linking up this week.

    My pleasure linking up with you ladies. Check out what I wore. Thanks, Ada. =)

  22. If I looked like you I could wear a burlap sack and look fabulous!
    I think black takes a little effort to wear properly. It has to fit impeccably and be clean and crisp, otherwise it can make you look schlumpy and unkempt. Having said that, I do find I’m wearing black more often these days.

    You can never go wrong with all black. It makes you look slim – haha!
