Paint it black

MMMx H&M blazer
ZARA coat and pants
DIOR earrings

Call me boring but wearing all black is one of my all time favorite get-ups. We blonds can get away with anything, ad a smile and that applies to many things. I’m lucky enough to be in Dubai at the moment (!) but looking back at what I wore i London has me at ease, black will never let you down. A few days days away from layering will reenergize my sartorial batteries like nothing else, so follow me on Instagram if you can bare the current, beachy updates. You'll find me at @5inchandup, of course.

I wear black on the outside because black is how I feel on the inside, and if I seem a little strange, well, that's because I am.
