I’ve never liked combining black with certain colors. For example, yellow or blue, but as time goes on I am learning ways to incorporate these shades that I normally stay away from. A good way to mix blue with black is to use a lighter shade. Not only does it contrast great against black but it really makes the outfit pop.

How adorable is this vest? My favorite color is black and I wear it daily so I love being able to throw on a strong print to accent my outfit. You can instantly turn a boring and dull outfit into something that pops with color or a print.

This vest is from ShopSosie.com and is still available in a few sizes, so get it while you can!

Plaid + Fringe are two fashion trends that have been in for quite some time now. If you follow my instagram (@pearls_and_paris) you have seen this fringe bag multiple times. It’s my go to bag! It’s super chic and can be worn casually or for a night out which I love.

While #allblackeverything is my fashion motto, I see myself leaning even more towards it since having my son 3 months ago. Black obviously is very slimming but it also creates a very clean silhouette when wearing a statement piece such as this sleeveless long red plaid duster. I pulled the look together with these gorgeous over the knee boots which has the perfect heel height when on the go.

I cannot remember the last time I was able to style some pieces then go out and shoot them for Pearls & Paris. It literally has been FOREVER, therefore it felt great to get back out there. One of my best friends has picked up photography and she has a great eye so it was a pleasure to have her shoot me.

I absolutely believe that Leopard is a neutral. It’s a staple print to have in your wardrobe and it blends well with so many shades and colors.

 I splurged on these Coach booties because they were truly love at first sight. Once they went on sale, I didn’t think twice about purchasing them. This chunky heel is not only super comfortable but very trendy this season. I’m looking forward to styling these with some fun colors in the upcoming months.

Unfortunately, these Felicia booties in leopard have sold out BUT if you like the style and shape, they are still available in black.

(Edit: as of 10pm / 12.28.15 certain sizes have come back in stock)
