Today I wanted to share with you my new found love for the black shirt. Shirts are a huge part of my wardrobe, and I own a LOT of white ones, but until recently, I didn’t  have a black shirt in my wardrobe! What?! I know.. crazy, especially since black is my favourite colour.. and my wardrobe is pretty much full of it! Anyway, I have one now and it is the best thing ever, which is why I just had to share it with you! I’m not sure why I didn’t think of it before but owning a black shirt never really crossed my mind. I now realise just how much of a wardrobe staple it is! So, today I am here to tell you that you need one too!
Obviously being black , it goes with everything and because I am a massive fan of shirts as it is, I literally wear it with anything, blue denim jeans, black shorts, leather pants and tucked into a high waisted skirt! I also love that shirts can be worn so many different ways.. slightly unbuttoned with a hint of bra peeking through, buttoned right up for a preppy look or layered under your favourite knit!
Next on my list is a black t-shirt because, would you believe.. I don’t have one of those either! Eeeek!

Ps. Please excuse my embarrassingly white legs, it is the middle of Winter, I really shouldn’t be wearing shorts!

    So I am going on a goodwill shopping spree today because I am on a mass budget today, and trying to prove you can be stylish on a budget, but I did in fact notice that black is going to be very in and as I do have a go too black t shirt, I don’t have a black go too sweater, turtleneck, nothing else!! I will let you know if I succeed today!

    You know me, I LOVE an all black look! I think as long as you mix textures of black, you can’t go wrong. I love these One Teaspoon shorts (they make the best distressed denim) and that leather jacket combo. The peek a boo bra out of the black shirt also adds dimension to the look. Fab outfit! xoxo, Christine

    I love these shorts. So good! Actually picked up a black boyfriend style shirt recently too. I still feel a little like I am wearing a work shirt in it, but I do like the option. I will share a look this week in it.
    Also, I have a request. You wear a lot of bold lipsticks, can you do a post sharing your favourites?

    Black is an incredibly versatile color. Love the look. I recently realized how much easier it is to style outfits if I have more black in my wardrobe. Your legs look amazing by the way. So toned. :]
