The woahMan in Black

"Spring is here....WOOOHOO! So excited that it's sunny," [I open my closet door], "OH wait, I have NOTHING to wear." You see, my uniform consists of black, layers, leggings and boots. Par exemple, the outfit today:

 (headband and leggings from Camaieu, Edie Sedgwick top and earrings from Urban Outfitters, dress from H&M this summer, black leather boots by Gianni Bini)

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black,
Why you never see bright colors on my back,
And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone. 
Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on.
Why the black? Unfortunately, I do not have spiritual and profound reasons for wearing all black Johnny Cash in his song "The Man in Black."
And I definitely don't "Dress in black and read Camus, smoke cloves cigarettes and drink Vermouth, like I was seventeen" in the Magnetic Fields song. I'm not aiming to be the depressed/ tortured artist-hipster.
 ...nor do I dabble in goth or black-magic.

I just like to wear black! That's a part of why I love France. You can be head to toe in black all year long without needing a reason.

 However, suddenly, my unflinching love for black is replaced with a desire for flowery prints and "milk shake" colors.

Yet, I fear for looking like one giant cupcake. (picture to the left from
Nevertheless, I will make it a goal to dress more cupcake-esque this season. Maybe if I were able to buy these outfits from Miu Miu, I would have a little more motivation. A girl can dream, right?
