Have you ever heard the saying, "I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker color?" ; ) It's one of my favorite quotes because I wear a LOT of black and most of my closet is filled with darker-hued pieces. I just feel more comfortable in neutrals and black is so slimming and classic. However, I do enjoy adding a little color to my outfit from time to time, like this orange statement coat I bought 4 or 5 years ago from Zara that you've probably seen on the blog a few times. I'm hoping it never goes out of style because I couldn't bear to part with it! It's one of my favorite items in my closet, even though it's quite bright. But hey, we all have to veer out of our comfort zone a little bit, don't we? ; )

Love that coat! It looks so soft too! :)
I'm the same, I don't have a lot of black, but I do have a lot of darker shades, I just feel more comfortable in them. But I do love a bright piece every now and then.

I'm a fellow all black wearer and loved that quote (can't believe I've never heard that before). And I love the orange!
