I must admit, I've never been a huge fan of the color black when it comes to clothing. I don't really like neutrals in general. I much prefer bold colors, whether they're deep or bright. Give me Kelly Green or Periwinkle Blue any day!

I don't know if it's my age, or if my style has changed slightly, but I'm really learning to appreciate the color black.

I'm starting to incorporate more black and grey into my wardrobe, and I'm really enjoying the change. I got this dress for Christmas, and it's already one of my favorite pieces...

I like the acid-like wash of it, which gives it more dimension than if it were just solid black. You could wear it on its own or with statement jewelry. I went for a casual look here, but you could dress it up with different shoes.

As for my chosen accessories, the blue scarf I'm wearing is probably the warmest scarf I have. It's a blanket scarf, the first one I've ever had, and it is HUGE. Once you fold it in half, you could almost wear it as a shawl on a cool day, it's that warm.

In fact, since blanket scarves seem to be all the rage and are EVERYWHERE, I think I'll build myself a little collection for future winters...

So, what do you say? Neutrals, yay or nay? 

Have a good weekend!

There comes a time, in a short life
Turn it around, get a rewrite
Call it a dark, night of the soul
Ticking of clocks, gravity’s pull
First you get close, then you get worried...
