I rarely wear head-to-toe black … though, I should do so more often because it’s so, so easy to feel polished wearing black … but I digress. I switched up my outfit plans on the day I wore this iteration because I had just thrifted these Stuart Weitzman pumps and couldn’t wait to wear them; a simple, all-black outfit seemed like a good idea given the bold look of these shoes. They remind me so much of the Roger Vivier flats I’ve admired on others but which I’ve found in the wild, err, thrifting; the only difference is that this pair has a low chunky heel.
The rest of the outfit is pretty straight-forward. The top is quickly becoming a favourite of mine; it’s by Theory, and it has a very flattering, subtle peplum and pockets. Yes, pockets! How cool is that? The pants are Talula brand (from Aritzia), and they’re a slouchier take on my usual Sloans, which somehow feels a bit more … elegant? Effortlessly chic? Something. Moving on, the blazer is another new fave — the heathered knit is a nice alternative to plain black, and it lends a bit of texture to the outfit. It’s hella comfy too. The necklace is an old J. Crew Factory one, and it always garners a compliment or two; it’s the only retail piece in the picture. But, let’s be honest: they’re all supporting players here. Those shoes are stealing the show, for sure.
