Light Blue with Bits of Black

I remember wearing this combination decades ago.  

Light blue column with black Chelsea boots, charcoal leather cuff and snakeskin bag with black strap. I got rid of most of my black when I transitioned my hair to silver because large amounts look quite harsh on me now, but just adding these little bits of black, tied in with my darkish glasses seems to work. I might even throw on my ancient black moto jacket that survived the Great Black Purge.

    Great style here - simple but with some interesting pieces.

    This is gorgeous on you, your glasses are fab and a nice way to add a light amount of black into the mix. It is so interesting with changes in hair colour and how they impact the colours we can wear. Wearing black was a favourite of mine in my late teens and early 20's, so I will always want to have a LBD in my wardrobe even if it is just for nostalgic purposes.

    Love that the components are simple and versatile but when they are put together on you they are FAB. An inspiration to me

    Great outfit! Love that sweater, so pretty. And with the stylish jeans and boots so pulled together. It doesn't look like too much black at all.
