{not so basic black}

I have a love affair with the color black. I have for several years. The other day I was buying some new shirts for spring and summer. I found some at TJ Maxx. All black. I went to Kohl's and bought another top. Black. Then I found two black shirts on the Target clearance.

It's my go to color. It works with everything. Don't get me wrong. I love color. My favorite color is robin's egg blue. When I wear black, I can wear any color jewelry or accessory. A printed handbag...fuchsia sandals. Anything works with black.

I know I am not alone. I think that my friend, Christine, has worn black every single time we've gone out for coffee (or tea). 

Anyway, here's a tribute to one of my most favorite colors:

I bought this black bamboo dress/tunic top last spring from Etsy's Topsy Curvy. I wear it all the time. When her shop opens again, I suggest you try her clothing.

Earrings from Stonehouse Studio

I love this tank from Etsy's Dear Lillie.


I can't say enough about Shabby Apple dresses. I like this new one, too!

I have the above ring (for the toes) from Barefoot Bling. So pretty!
