To say that wearing all black is simply a sartorial choice would, in my case, be an understatement. It has been my go-to for years and years for no other reason than because I feel great wearing it. I’ve mentioned here before that the color makes me feel strangely calm. Perhaps it’s because it is as uncomplicated and devoid of chaos as it is elegant and always on point.
Which brings me to today’s look.
My coat, by Donna Karan, is a closet classic (and one of my all-time favorites). I’ve paired the lightweight wool, belted topper with black ankle pants and fabulous heels from Ferragamo’s new spring line and voilà , the result is an effortlessly chic look that works perfectly as we transition to what I hope will be warmer weather very soon.

Beautiful coat! I love how you made the look modern with the ankle pants. And the shoes are simply fabulous! You look amazing! No wonder you feel great in black; you look amazing in it!
Well I am glad you feel great in black because you look great, you actually look like a million bucks. I too think black is so elegant, understated and beautiful. It makes one polished and elegant and to tell you the truth I need to wear it more often, Mary. I am dying over your coat and pumps. Both are beautiful!
So glad I stopped by, today. Also, starting tomorrow I am hosting my own linkup called “Thursday Moda” so welcome by and link up. Thanks so much, Ada. =)

Beautiful minimalist outfit – and the black sets off your gorgeous hair. Thanks for sharing with Vis Monday, xo
I love, love, love this classic black look. Your shoes add the perfect pop
Black is one of the most beautiful colours known to man, and I know that sounds rather oxymoronic since it is, in essence, an absence of colour but nonetheless. It has depth and interest unlike any other within the palette. It transcends seasons and ups the ante no matter the silhouette, which brings me to your outfit, Mary. Classic though the cut of your coat may be, it’s certainly no boring wallflower :) the collar is divine and that sash-tie belt, so pretty. And all that is the perfect foil for your shoes (this is where I say insert sigh, big dreamy sigh) xoxo
You are a master at chic, classic ensembles. I love the interest your shoes and brooch bring to this outfit!
