Keeping It Casual 14 - (Link-Up)

A.N.A blouse via JCP (here), F21 shorts, earrings, and bracelets, Lilac Bijoux necklace c/o (here), Worthington
wedges via JCP , bag via Ross

I'm becoming a huge fan of wearing one color from head to toe. I've done pink and yellow, and I couldn't resist black (even though I've done that already too). If you are worried about looking too drab in all black, add a pop of color in an accessory (like I did in a necklace). I also decided to carry a striped bag to give a little more interest to my look.

I'd like to introduce you to Victoria from Fashion Flirtation. She is a California girl living in Arizona and just married her sweetheart back in November. Here are a few of my favorite looks from her. I hope you will stop by her blog to see some more cute looks!

This heart sweater and skirt is my favorite by far. There is nothing better than pairing a cute sweater with a pencil skirt.

Just look at those heels! This girl has some cute shoes. I think I need that yellow pair in my closet right away...

  1. Lovely! The necklace, sunnies, and lips are definitely enough to keep it from being boring! Plus I like the mix of fabrics between the top and the shorts.

  26. I love all of these looks! I like they are a little covered up, b/c I have to watch out for the sun, and don't want to only rely on sunscreen, some covering helps, too, yet these all look so summery!

  27. Love the all black look on you! I have been messing around with the all one color look myself lately, but I really like how you accented it with the orange necklace. You look fantastic as always! :)

  28. I love all-black! And I love how you put this outfit together. The faux leather shorts add dimension and texture to the outfit. And I love your use of color. Speaking of, who makes that fabulous lipstick you're wearing?! Love that you finished the outfit with strappy heels. Perfect!
