Some people wear pastels and florals all summer - I wear black (and white and grey of course too) Why can't you wear black in the summer? It's fun too. Fun in a seriously cool way, no? When it comes to black in the summer, I think the key is soft fabrics, mixing textures and pops of white. That's make makes it fresh and not blah. Like instead of black leggings and a black tee, do black silky drawstring pants, a black knit tank and soft flowing trench, or even a leather jacket would do. Its casual, comfy and cool, and super easy to put together, for all you busy ladies out there. And it's perfect for cool mornings by the lake!
We shot this on the most beautiful morning, down by the boardwalk. Normally I prefer white backgrounds...but this was just too stunning to pass up! It's been such a long winter, that seeing such gorgeous blue skies and water was like heaven. We shot the look and then went to the park with Hunter so that he could play, and he played in the sand for the first time by the beach! Although, he was a bit apprehensive about the sand.
