Blacked out


It's been such a busy month, I can't hardly believe that August is almost over! Two busy travel weeks for work, and then my birthday weekend, and before I know it, my nephew will be here! My sister is due on September 4th, so literally this could happen any day now! I commiserate with all the other bloggers who have posted about their busy schedules, I'm definitely feeling that also, but still love blogging enough to torture myself to push through and share my outfits with you! 

Necklace: Kate Spade | Blazer: Frenchi (optioncheaper option) | Top: Express | Bracelet: Express (option)  | Watch: Kate Spade (option) | Bottoms: Express (option) | Shoes: MICHAEL Michael Kors (option)

It's pretty rare when I wear all black, so I kinda welcome it every now and then. I do still love to mix textures as much as possible with pops of interest like this bauble necklace and caged sandals. I'll admit that I felt like I should be working at Victoria's Secret in this outfit, but meh, I'll go with it. :)

    1. Thank you! I probably have more black caged shoes than one needs, but these are really great!

  3. Oh how cool!! This is the one version of the Barcelona I have not seen in person and I have been waiting to see it on you. I love it! You also look really chic and sophisticated in all black.

    1. Thanks! It's definitely comforting to see myself in all black every once in awhile!
      I do like this cami a lot, but I'm a little disappointed it looks more silky than faux leather in person. Still no regrets regardless - it's a great staple. Clearly because I wore it again today.

  5. Your all black outfit is great! I love the all black look and I don't think you look like a VS worker at all! You made me chuckle though!

    1. I can't remember what friend it was, but someone once told me she had an aversion to black blazers bc of how she worked at VS! Ha!
      Thanks for the note!!

  6. I agree with you...I tend to be such a "color mixer" that going all one color every once is a while is fun and refreshing! Love your look today, especially those shoes!! <3

    1. Thanks, girlie! I definitely love the monochromatic look! My eyes just always gravitate to color and print mixing!

  7. Love it! I also tend to mix colors as well. Your outfit makes me want to stick to one color as well because it looks so chic. It is always exciting when you are waiting for a new addition to the family, good luck to you both.

  8. Hahahaa about the VS comment but I know what you mean. You look cool, elegant and sexy all at once. Love the wrap bracelet, chunky pearl necklace and cage heels. I was talking in my post today about how I rarely wear black as well, but I am wearing it head to toe as well. I styled a casual LBD. Come take a peek.

    Have a lovely weekend Carylee and keep us updated about your sister's pregnancy. =)

    1. I KNOW RIGHT?! It's practically September, and then it will be snowing again.
      Though, I'm excited to wear boots again, so I shouldn't complain too much!!

  11. I normally don't like too much black on people as it's so dark and heavy. Your colouring means you're able to carry it off beautifully. I like how your necklace really does take centre stage. Have to say, your stunning sandals are gorgeous!
