Backless in Black

Black low-back bodysuit, American Apparel   Black pique cotton circle skirt, American Apparel  Dooney & Bourke Happy Bag. Low-heeled sandals, TJ Maxx.

     Black. It hasn't always been my neutral of choice, but I'm finding myself lost in the perfect darkness of the absence of all color. Although I keep my tone on my blog rather positive, my humor and personality both have their fair share of darkness around the edges. Few shades have ever been dwelled upon for so long. While black represents both elegance and mourning, rebellion and urban camouflage, to me the feeling of wearing an all black ensemble is nearly indescribable. 
     As the section of my wardrobe dedicated to the dark shade expands, I'm finding myself more comfortable with the idea of all black outfits. Typically, I will break it up with a different neutral shade or a pattern, or in this case a pair of coral shoes, but the statement that a striking black ensemble makes is matched by few other things. As much as I appreciate black and white imagery, a greyscale wardrobe is a natural extension of that aesthetic. 
     What is your favorite color (or lack there of) to wear?

I never seem to remember to leave a comment but I looove your style and your blog! <3 This outfit is simple and sweet and even if you're not feeling 100% cheery, it definitely doesn't show.

So pretty! Black isn't always pretty I guess, but this is a beautiful look on you. I especially love the low back, and the pop of red is perfect.

Lovely outfit! Black just always seems so classy to me, and it's the perfect neutral. I also love how you added the pop of color with the red!

Are you wearing some kind of backless bra with that bodysuit? I've tried it on before but it doesn't have enough support....
