Mean Street

It's so funny to look at myself now, head to toe in black, and think about how in high school I didn't have the first black piece of clothing. I shopped primarily at places like Hollister and Abercrombie, and you never find a black article of clothing there... (have you notice that?!) It's still not high on my favorite color to wear, but I like how effortless it looks. Black clothing instantly classes anything up (at least I think so!). This dress is entirely too short (way shorter than I remember!)... I picked it up on Haight St in San Francisco a few years ago, but I haven't worn it in a long, long time. I wanted something dark and different to wear out and about with my new Jeffrey Campbell Security shoes (!!!). They may look intimidating, but they're so incredibly comfortable and easy to walk in! We shot these photos down the street from our place, just past the larger Marathon Motors building in Midtown. The late afternoon light was so perfect! It's briefly warmed up here in Nashville and I know it'll be cold again soon. Taking in all the fresh air I can before I retreat to only taking photos in our hallway!

Have y'all had a good weekend? I can't believe it's already December 4th. Christmas will come and go in no time! xo

  11. I wear black all the time. Meaning like 95% of the time. And it had just happened this past year. I've really gotten into black and earth tones in every season. This outfit does look super classy with some edge and the shoes are what make it! I'm kind of jealous you got to shop on Haight St. My inner hippie is rejoicing at the mere idea. Enjoy this Southern weather!

  19. I used to work at Abercrombie when I was in high school and we weren't allowed to wear black because they don't even sell anything that's black! I always thought that was funny.

  23. I love this all black outfit and all black outfits in general, they're so classic and almost always chic. You look adorable. It's weird, I was the opposite, you don't see me in all black a lot anymore. I used to wear it all the time back in my emo days, lol, and then when I worked at The Body Shop, where I had to wear all black all the time. Now, I wear a lot of color. Maybe I should try an all black outfit soon!
