All black everything

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I love wearing black any time (and every time), but black is definitely best in the winter. All-black ensembles look so chic in winter–and they’re so easy to put together. An all-black look is also my go-to when I’m in a pinch and need to throw on an outfit in like, five minutes. Nothing goes better with black than black.

Outfit details
Jacket: Blank NYC
Sweater: Trouvé (similar)
Jeans: Hudson (similar)
Boots: Sam Edelman (similar)
Ring: Kendra Scott

The black suede jacket is by BlankNYC, and I’ve worn it more times than I can count this winter. It goes with everything, and the suede is really warm. I found the jacket to be true to size–I took an XS, and it fits well (albeit a little snug if I wear it over bulkier sweaters). For reference, my measurements are 32-24.5-33. This exact color still sells HERE, but if you prefer a different color, you can find it in burgundy and camel HERE. There’s also a black leather version selling HERE.

The jeans are by Hudson. I picked them up at Nordstrom Rack a long time ago, and I was actually on the fence about keeping them when I first got them. I’m glad I did, as they’ve proven to be a wardrobe staple. These are great dressed up or down, and the holes fall (more or less) on my knees (no shin holes, please!). The fabric is soft and stretchy but still thick, and the jeans hold their shape over a good number of wears. I couldn’t find this exact pair selling anywhere, but Rag and Bone carries a style that’s really similar HERE–and Rag and Bone is probably my favorite denim brand. As far as sizing goes, I’m usually a 25 in both Rag and Bone and Hudson–both those brands tend to fit true to size, though I’ve found some pairs to run slightly small. For a high waist skinny style, both brands tend to fit true to size on the legs, with a little room in the waist.

The boots are actually a recent find, and one of the best impulse purchases I’ve made. I love the silhouette of the boot, and the leather is quite soft and pliable. The heel is high, but not too difficult to walk in, and it’s a stacked heel so it’s a little easier to walk in than a stiletto. These ran pretty true to size as well–I’m usually a 7, and I took a 7 in these–though if you plan to wear thick socks under these boots, I would suggest sizing up a half size. This exact pair is sold out, but there is a really similar style (also by Sam Edelman) that sells HERE. I also love the Margot boot by Rag and Bone–there’s a black suede version that sells HERE.

Sweater is by Trouvé, though the black version is sold out. I really like this alternative by NIC+ZOE selling HERE–I love knot details, and this one is convertible so you can knot it or front tuck it.

The ring is the Kenny ring by Kendra Scott, and I wear it almost every day. It’s such a great statement ring–it’s eye-catching, yet versatile. It’s a great addition to any outfit. This exact style appears to be sold out, but there is a similar alternative selling HERE, a budget-friendly version selling HERE, and an all-metal version selling HERE.

One Smart Cookie Website

I built and authored this website for a local business called One Smart Cookie. Previously, the company had no online presence, and customer awareness was primarily through word of mouth. Upon building the website, customer awareness significantly increased. Customers were able to place orders via the website, research and learn about the company, keep up with company updates, and contact the company quickly. I used WordPress.org to build the website. The link is below.
