You hear it too often that an all black outfit is “too safe” or “boring”. I would have to disagree. Choosing an interesting cut or a different design like this vest with ruffled details or adding a little extra oomph with accessories can completely change up your all black game.

Let’s be honest. Pulling out classic colors on a hectic morning is really easy hence a huge time saver. You don’t have to think about matching colors much. You also don’t need to go over the top with accessories to make your outfit stand out.

I chose in my all black outfit a clutch with abstract patterns and I added heelusions to my pumps. Heelusions are my recent discovery and I am hooked. These are basically patterned little tags that you can add to your shoes to bring life to a pair of black or nude pumps. Three pairs come in a packet, each pair with different patterns and colors. You can easily add these little things to your shoes and swap them out depending on your mood, outfit or occasion. I’ve found that besides the visual appeal, heelusions also have a practical side: they are a comfy cushion to prevent my heels from blisters and add just the right amount of fill to my shoes that are a tad bit large.

    Black is definitely not boring! If anything, it’s a foolproof color to wear since you can’t ever not match. Great styling as always!

    This is such a lovely dress and I adore the heelusions you’ve added to your pumps! I’ve heard of them before, but haven’t tried them out. They seem like such a fun way to change the whole vibe of a pair of shoes or outfit, without having to go out and purchase another pair of shoes! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a great week ahead, beauty!
