more like all black outfits are more like my weakness

L.A. & San Francisco

Los Angeles had a gorgeous start of extraordinarily nice weather this past weekend. My best friend and I spent some time with family in Hermosa Beach and took a day trip to Beverly Hills. Being out of freezing New York City was an amazing little escape. Beaching in the winter when NYC is experiencing a snow storm is also one of the nicest feelings in the world. Sorry, NY-ers. Although this week NYC is having beautiful weather. So I obviously brought it back, you’re welcome!

We traveled up north to San Francisco for a few days to visit another bestie. My experience was delightful and S.F. is now in the running for one of my favorite cities out there. Take a look at some pics below because photos do a much better job of explaining than me rambling on about what I did.

Honestly…Breezy, Kim and I stood sat in front of the Painted Ladies for a solid 15 minutes before we decided what type of themed photo was acceptable to upload to Instagram. This photo captures the pure ridiculousness being caught in the moment. Breezy’s Instagram has the photo we chose. 🙂

Brings me back to my childhood… actually I still watch Full House often so it brings me back a few days ago.

Sometimes iPhone pictures don’t come out as good as I hope for ❤ Also my phone was dead or not on me for half of this trip so the memories will last much longer than the photos in this case. ❤

 

11 Reasons Why Life Looks Better in Black

11 because it’s a skinny looking number

1. Black looks good on everybody. It’s slimming…listen to Christian Dior.

Image

2. Black is chic. I’ve never seen black look bad unless it’s faded, then questionable.

3. Black will never go out of style. It is in fact, timeless. Not trendy, nor tacky. It works in every season.

Image

4. Once you go black, you never go back? It looks great on every skin tone. Image5. There’s NEVER a reason to not wear black.  Black is always kind-of dressy. Image

6. There’s a reason why love is deep.

Image

7. I’ve never met another color that has as many emotions as black does. It can be anything you want it to be and it pulls it off every damn time.

Image

 8. Black is punctual. It also means you never have to worry about matching. Anything.

Image

 9. Black says: “Ooh, she means business.” Black makes anyone look mature.

Image

10. Black also conveys a straightforward sense of being. Honesty is black. No grey areas here. Black & White for all of the right reasons.

Image

11. Black camouflages any stains! Perfect for messy people like myself.

and for good luck ❤

* Black does not judge whether your clothes are expensive or cheap. *

I’ve been saying this all along

Life Looks Better in Black.
