I think people have a very negative connotation of black; complete outfits and in general. I don’t think there’s anything better than it though, anyone can pull it off and to be honest, it’s probably the most flattering shade to wear on anyone. Silver detailing is my favourite with an all black outfit and can even give a little more edge to a monochromatic outfit. As for the Birkenstocks, I take back what I said previously: they really have grown on me. Basically, this is my collection of essentials that not only can be worn together, but with almost any other piece in your wardrobe. Anyway, better get back to studying my holidays away..
