Hello, lovelies! I’m back again with the second (of five!) looks with Yours Clothing! This look contrasts a bit with the previous look because as you can see it’s ALL black. I like my outfits how I like my coffee…black, haha! 


There’s something so effortless and confident about dressing in all black. It feels like a uniform, but it’s mega-chic. I love the grungy grey smudge pattern on the maxi skirt. By the way, the skirt IS a proper maxi, but I have it hiked up right under my boobs. (I’m all about the honesty here at amanda apparel dot com). The skirt features a slit on each side, which is great for muggy summer days! When it’s hot out, I’ll talk all the breeze I can get tbh. 


I know this top isn’t TECHNICALLY reversible…but I’ve definitely worn it backwards so the criss-cross design was at the front. Whether it’s worn 'correctly' or backwards it’s super soft and mega comfortable. I wanted the top to be oversized so it would fit loosely, but here I’ve tied it up to show off more of the skirt’s pattern. 


I’ve not had a black (faux) leather jacket in TOO LONG you guys! I feel like I go from 0 to 100 real quick when I put this bad boy on! It’s amazing having pieces of clothing that help you feel confident. It may not look like it, but I was actually having a rubbish day when we shot these photos. I’m generally a really soft, heart on my sleeve kinda gal. Add depression + anxiety, and let’s just say I’m a crier. Even though this was such a hard day, I’m thrilled that these photos ended up looking so good. I look happy, and confident, and truly myself. And tomorrow is a new day!
