Inspired from Within

     Sometimes all a girl needs to do for a little inspiration is turn inward!  Check out my #ootd (outfit of the day) inspired by the following post written a few months ago!

     Born a New York girl, I guess it’s no surprise that at some point in my life, 80% of my wardrobe was black.  The other 20%? Well, white and grey obviously!  In fact, I distinctly remember weeks in high school where that’s all I’d wear – black – from head to toe.  No this wasn’t my form of rebellion- this was just what New York girls did.  It wasn’t until my move to Miami, almost 8 years ago, that color began to rock my world!!!  Don’t get me wrong when in doubt my “go-to” is still a sexy LBD (little black dress), but now instead of paring it with the obvious black stilettos I may opt for my hot pink Sergio Rossi’s- don’t knock it till you try it!

     Currently speaking, my wardrobe is still probably 50% black.  You know what they say: You can take the girl out of New York but you can’t take the New York out of the girl!  But now pairing my black and other neutral ensembles with colorful accessories has become my new “norm.” The result:  Over-the-top sexy with a side of color!!!
