Casual Black Outfit + Linkup

Black top (on sale, size up) // Jeans // Sandals (go 1/2 size down) // Hat (similar) // Circle Purse // Scarf

June is one of those weird weather months in LA. Every year, without fail, the fog and clouds just roll in. You think I would accept it by now. I am an LA native, but there's a naive part of me hoping it will skip this year. Doesn't look like June Gloom is missing out. So it makes for interesting dressing. You get up reaching for sweaters. Then by midday, you're regretting all the warm layers. While I don't recommend wearing all black in the middle of Summer, I have a better chance at getting away with it during this split weather month. 

Now, let's talk accessories. Every season I find myself adding in new accessories to transition into the next season. This bag is my new go-to bag and it's on major sale. It fits your essentials and adds a unique twist to any outfit. The other purchase that I'm so excited about are these suede sandals. Literally, they feel as close to being barefoot (in a good way). If you know me well, you'd know that I'd rather be barefooted as much as possible. But they don't need any breaking in and could wear them with just about anything! 

Let's flashback to last year's look here. Besides being a neutral outfit, it brings me back to one of my favorite cities, San Francisco. Better yet, it makes me wish I was still waiting to eat at one of best brunch spots, Nopa. In between waiting for a table, we found a cute alley to snap some pictures. You guys go there. It's completely worth the wait.

Thank you for linking up with Jessica and I! We get so happy seeing all your great posts. Our picks are Ruth from My Little Nest and Rachael from Threads for Thomas!
