Back to Black

Y'all, I'm not sure what's going on with me.  I usually love color, especially as the weather gets warmer.  But lately I've been gravitating toward black pieces instead of my typical Lilly Pulitzer favorites.

Here are a few things I can't wait to add to my wardrobe, all of them under $100!

black clothing under $100

Sleeveless Romper • Mesh Bikini (top & bottom) • Tie Back Romper
Draper James Mini SkirtFaux Leather ToteShift Dress
Off the Shoulder Top •  Monogrammed RingThin Band • Sunglasses • Fringe Heels

Sleeveless Romper •  I love how versatile this piece is!  It would be perfect dressed up for a GNO or dressed down for a concert.  (PS - If you like backless pieces, this one is open back!)

Mesh Bikini (Top & Bottom) • I've been really loving mesh lately, because it can add a sexy touch to the most simple, basic pieces.  The combined cost of the swimsuit is only $56!! This is at the top of my wishlist.

Tie Back Romper •  I don't have a vacation planned yet for the summer, but I want this to wear on vacation!  Haha.  It's a super easy piece and comes in three other colors.

Draper James Mini SkirtConfession - I bought this today.  When Nicole and I went to Draper James, I tried on this skirt and then tried on the dress that I ended up buying.  But I couldn't stop thinking about this skirt, so I ended up ordering it because it's on sale.  (If you have concerns about the flap in the front, it's basically extra fabric.  There's a normal skirt under there, so a wardrobe malfunction is a little less likely!)

Faux Leather Tote •  I own the reversible version of this bag in nude and blush, and I carry it all of the time!  When I travel, I use it for all of my toiletries, makeup, and hot tools because it's so easy to clean.

Shift DressI can't get over how chic this dress is! It reminds me so much of Twiggy.  It's available in 12 (!!!) colors!

Off the Shoulder TopTwo of the hottest trends in one piece - off the shoulder and pom poms!  I can't wait to pair this with distressed denim or with white jeans.

Monogrammed RingIsn't this a cute statement ring?!  It's hard to believe it's only $68!

Thin BandMy absolute favorite piece of jewelry is a thin, channel set diamond band that I wear on my right ring finger.  I've been on the hunt for a tiny gold band, and this one is under $50!

Sunglasses •  I feel like I'm the only person in the world that doesn't own a pair of Quays!  These offer 100% UV protection and are $50.

Fringe Heels I'm not much of a shoe person, and I wear the same black wedges almost every day because they're comfortable and professional. Since I've started wearing black so frequently, I think these would be a fun addition to my wardrobe!  They have fringe and tassels, and they're $54 with free shipping.

What do y'all think?  See anything you want to add to your wardrobe?  Happy Tuesday, y'all!


  1. I love black. It's flattering on everyone and it can so easily be transitioned from night to day. & FYI, that ring... it has to go on my wish list!

  2. I like color too but having a few all black looks is oh-so chic!

  3. I try to add color to my outfits, but I always end up defaulting to black. It's just such a versatile color! Gold accents, like the ones you featured, are great at "faking" color, so I go with those. I am loving the tote and dress, btw!
