Lavender x Black

ever have one of those days where you just cannot get it together? 
you wake up late, your hair won’t style, you run out of coffee creamer, and, as the clock keeps ticking by, forget trying to put together an outfit that you feel good in. obviously, none of these things are life-altering or important in the grand scheme of life, but there’s something to say for starting your day off on a smooth note that makes it difficult when it doesn’t happen. 
when you have those times, the simplest thing to do is pick one or two colors and build an outfit out of them. for me, it will always be black, and maybe another color. black is classic, chic, and always appropriate, so it’s the easiest one to use as a go-to. if you’re looking for something a little more interesting, or just can’t fathom wearing all black anything, add in another color, like a lavender, powder blue, or cognac. once you have the base layers, you can add in some texture and pattern with your accessories, like a necklace and printed pumps. and suddenly, you feel like you can conquer the world! or at least survive the day without regretting your outfit at every turn. 
or am i the only one that happens to?
