It is inevitable that in the midst of all the humidity and sunshine-y heat, I revert to wearing my favorite color. To be fair, I wore this outfit to a gallery opening, and to me, nothing says artsy-chic more than a black on black with a little bit of red splattered around. You feels?
But really, black is my neutral. Some people wear grey or white or brown or even nudes with other colors; I wear black paired with everything else. It just feels right to wear no matter what the temperature is. Even if that means boiling in the summer heat.
I am finally feeling better after being sick a whole week, thanks to the two giant bags (so far) of Ricola and a constant stream of cough syrup and Nyquil. Summer colds/coughs are absolute hell, especially when weekends become recuperating days instead of enjoyment days. But there's no use wailing over soured milk, and last weekend will definitely be avenged by this summer goth!
