All Black Oasis
My boyfriend and I decided that it was finally time to take a real vacation, so we packed everything up in the back of his van and took off to Phoenix, Arizona for the weekend. While it was in the upper 70s in LA, it was in the 90s in Arizona. Even though I knew I'd have to hear from everyone about how crazy I am to be wearing all black in the desert, I'm wearing all black in the desert.
Even though this outfit is all black, I still consider it a summer outfit. First, I knew how intense the sun in Arizona is compared to California, so I started off with protection for my face and eyes with a black hat and sunglasses. I paired a black crop top with a black skirt, both for comfort and to keep me cool. The strip of skin between the bottom of the crop top and the top of my skirt break out the all black ensemble, keeping me from looking like a black blob. I wore my black lace-up heels to give my outfit more of a summer vibe. I also wore a statement necklace from Sticks + Stones to give my outfit a little bit more style. Lastly, I brought my new cow hide tote to carry everything I need for the desert, like a ton of sunscreen.
