Once upon a time the only color in my closet was black. Actually it wasn't too long ago. When I worked in retail, black was just so easy. Not to mention it hid all the dust and paint, and whatever else I would get on myself from merchandising. But mainly...everything was black. Which is actually quite odd because I lived in HOT places. Las Vegas....Scottsdale....I mean triple digit heat, why was I constantly running around in black? 

I really had to force myself to buy things in color, even if I reallyyyy loved them in black. But an all black look just works. And adding subtle accessories still keeps the outfit looking classic. Even a little cutout detail on the back, or overly distressed jeans makes the monochromatic look a bit more fun!

I am also really loving this necklace. It is simple, and long, and doesn't really need to be a statement. Although I did have to swing it around my neck while breastfeeding because Odette gets a little grabby. This was one of the pieces that came in my Rocksbox this week. Have you heard of them? It is basically like playing dress up with a couple surprise jewelry pieces. You go online and make a wishlist of sorts, then three pieces from that wishlist will show up in your mail box. You can wear them, love them, even buy them if you want. Or not....and just send them back for another few pieces. It's genius! Especially for someone like me who would love to have more fun jewelry to pair with outfits, but I certainly don't have the time to shop and look around.

So, I highly recommend you give it a try! AND you can try it out for a month FREE!! Just use code: kelseypardonmfxoxo at checkout. If you do, make sure to tag me on instragram, or leave me a comment so I can see what you got....because I'm nosy like that :)

    1. It is so smart. Easy to sign up, first box is free, and then there is no commitment there after. But The pieces are so good, and from really well known brands as well. Pretty great!!

  6. That's a genius idea actually. Sometimes things work and sometimes they don't and a low commitment is key.
