Black is the New Black

Since having children you can say I have been in a slump fashion wise. I don't go out in sweatpants or clothes with holes in them but I always go to my "standard" outfit. Jeans/pants/shorts/capris and a black top. My favorite color to buy anything in is black. I consider it my signature color.

You know how it is when you are a new mom, you don't have the time or energy to buy new clothes. When you can go shopping you buy clothes for the baby. You are not working anymore, so you can wear all of your comfy clothes every day. What a revelation!

Believe me, I have some fashion DO NOTS in my closet but I wanted to share with you my "blacks".

These are my black shirts from my closet. There are many more in my drawers but I think you get the picture. If I find a shirt I like in black, I buy two so I have a spare. I admit it, it is easy to pull out my black shirt and pair it with anything and go. I think I need to get out of my rut and get some color in my closet, maybe something in grey............


This post was brought to you by Parent Bloggers Network and the new book, The Little black Book of Style. Do you think Nina Garcia's new book has any advice for a black-a-holic like myself?

  1. I was sort of similar - mine was mostly creme, tan, black, white - but that is ALOT of black shirts LOL.

    I have livened up my closet since I realized what a "rut" I was in but I took it slow. LOL Of course, today I have on creme and brown and all week I have worn black with grey/white/pink.

  2. I wish I had some advice, but everything I wear is black or brown.

    Black is chic. At least that's what I tell myself.

  3. Well, black certainly is easy!

    I thought I was bad with two black turtleneck sweaters and two black T-shirts!

  4. How funny. My wife also has a fair number of black shirts, but mixes in lots of other colors also. I'm pretty sure she's never bought multiples of the same shirt in the same color before!

    Who am I to talk? Most of my shirts are black, too!

  7. Are you related to my mom? She has more black in her wardrobe than a 15 year old goth chic.

  8. That is so funny ... I just watched Tim Gunn's new show and I, like, cringe every time I walk into my closet now.
