A spring take on the all-black look

The first day you are able to wear a skirt and not freeze to death is a good day. Period. This little black FLUTTERY SKIRT has been hanging in my closet for a good 3 weeks now, and since up until last week we were buried in snow all I could do was stare at it and dream.

I loved the movement it made every time I would turn around or the wind would catch me, it made me feel like I was a little girl again twirling in my skirts and feeling like a princess! 

I realized I didn’t own any BLACK OFF SHOULDER TOPS, which is such a crime considering they are my favorite style and I have them in every color but somehow the most basic one I don’t have! Crisis aborted, thanks to this DARLING SHIRT quarter length sleeves with golden button details (which don’t actually open – thus avoiding those awkward views of your bra in between buttons). 

As you can see, it was slightly windy when we were out taking photos, and I don’t know about you but I tend to think I am cursed by Mother Nature. It NEVER seems to be windy when I am inside, but the moment I step out (most often when I wear something short, of course) the wind picks up and sends everything flying!

And PS: Let’s take bets on how long it will take me to get tired of wearing THESE FLATS… My guess is, when they break apart. I am planning on getting more pairs of LOAFERS before that happens, so I am never caught without a pair!

    This outfit is so dreamy on you (and yes, black ensembles can be dreamy too hehe). I love the flirty skirt and the way that off-shoulder top has such cute button details! Plus, those loafers are definitely gorgeous. I haven’t been a fan of loafers so far, but I would definitely consider trying this pair! Too cute! You’re not the only one who has bad luck with wind haha! It seems like the same thing always happens to me as well!
