6 Jun



I know that summer is a time of white, neon, yellow, tangerine, you get the picture – but that doesn’t mean my love for black goes into hibernation along with my winterwear. Quite the contrary, my unending love burns right into the summer months, and so do my boots! It’s not the most practical thing I ever did in the Texas summer heat (black absorbs heat after all) but then again, what pair of high heeled shoes was ever practical? None.
And we still wear ’em.

Do you guys wear black all summer?

    black summer clothes I understand…very well in fact. Always cute with glowing summerized skin.The boots not so much …unless you are in a place that has a dry heat.I used to work at a resort in a tropical (read:very humid) island, and whenever we saw guests in boots it never ceased to puzzle me.

    I love your blog! Just followed you on bloglovin and added your blog to my reader. I like black but in small doses…so I'll wear a black mini dress, for example, in the summer. I don't tend to wear boots in the summer only because it gets way too humid and then I feel like my feet are roasting, lol. Love the photos you posted above though!

    I personally don't wear black all summer because quite frankly I would get insanely HOT even in a dress…BUT I'm not opposed to it! I think it's classic and chic and no one can go wrong with black! love the looks that you featured!<

    I enjoy black + white, no matter if it's summer or past Labor day! Who cares! Wear what you feel inspired… is my thinking. But yes, black is okay in Summer, just don't go…goth. 😊

    Omygad, too guilty. Just rehashing my Sasquatch photos. Dessert heat and I donned the color all weekend long. Aiming for change. Keyword: aiming.te amo,

    It's really just that I can't go a whole season without wearing my boots, I miss them too much. Though I can't say I'd pack them in my suitcase if traveling to a tropical island resort!

    Thank you very much Jess! My feet do roast, I guess it's one of those things we suffer through 😉

    Yea, I went out today in the hot hot heat (coincidentally I was wearing black) and MAN it was hot. But I think I'd be hot no matter what I wore in this 100 degree weather.

    Black + white might just be my favorite color combo ever. Timeless!

  12. Cristina Cleveland June 7, 2012 at 3:37 am #

    Me too, I wore black shorts today 🙂

    Oo what is Sasquatch? I'm picturing an amazing summer festival in the desert.

    Yea I love the blazer look too, but it's probably too hot to wear during the day but a great option for nights out! Hopping over to your blog now, thanks Diana!

    I almost still feel guilty for wearing black in the summer :/ but its all I can bring myself to wear. Anytime I break out of the habit it is almost ground breaking for me lol.
