We all know about the Monday blues, but what about the Monday blacks?! I usually find my self mourning my weekend at the start of every week, and naturally that means I’m dressed in an “All Black Everything” ensemble. But just because I’m mourning my lost weekend every Monday morning, doesn’t mean we can’t dress it up and start the week off in a bold fashion.

Let’s be honest, Monday mornings the struggle is real, and the first thing I need is coffee. Then I make a dash for my closet, because I’m conveniently running late, EVERY MONDAY MORNING, so all black attires are my go to. It’s a fast way to look put together, and as a bonus slimming, and oh so chic!

The key to an all black, New York City chic look, can only be a success if you accessorize! The accessories and your hair must do all the talking, we all know New Yorkers don’t like to jibber jabber, they do their communicating through their bold accessories, hair, and make-up. I kept my look as simple as can be, face it, by the end of business day on a Monday, my hair is usually on top of my head in a messy bun. But I started out with good intentions!

So keep your look simple, don’t over compensate just because your in all black. Yes, we are in a state of sadness that the weekend is over, but don’t actually look like you are going to a funeral. Hair up or down, a bold statement necklace will ALWAYS spruce up any Monday, and I paired this look with my favorite pair of Jeffrey Campbells’!
