Topshop blazer, Free People Dress, Kate Spade bag, Coach booties (here), H&M necklace
Whenever I'm feeling down or wake up on the wrong side of the bed, I always turn to black clothing for a boost of confidence and an extra spring in my step. My favorite black pieces just have the power to transform my mood and make me feel good both inside and out. I know that I can't go wrong with a black outfit, and that helps me takes on the day with renewed energy and a positive outlook!
This outfit has both of my favorite black pieces - this little black dress is the perfect combination of classic femininity with a boho touch, and the black blazer is a piece that I've worn countless times dressed up for a work meeting or dressed down with jeans for brunch. So when I came across the Woolite and Dress for Success' Capturing Confidence video about how the power of dark clothing can give someone the confidence they need, I decided to donate the two black pieces in this outfit to support the cause. There's something intangibly great about knowing that my pieces will be worn by another woman on an important day in her life. I hope this post inspired you to donate your own dark pieces to Dress for Success!
