“I wore black because I liked it. I still do, and wearing it still means something to me. It’s still my symbol of rebellion — against…people whose minds are closed to others’ ideas.”
― Johnny Cash

It’s been a slow week since the 4th of July and since then my healthy eating habits went out the window. It doesn’t help that I’m reading Eat, Pray, Love and I’m up to the part where she describes pizza as “Holy of holies! Thin, doughy, strong, gummy, yummy, chewy, salty pizza paradise. On top, there is a sweet tomato sauce that foams up all bubbly and creamy when it melts the fresh buffalo mozzarella, and the one sprig of basil in the middle of the whole deal somehow infuses the entire pizza with herbal radiance…” Keeping that in mind, you can see why it’s been a bit difficult :).
About My Outfit
As I mentioned a few posts ago I love the color black, for some reason I think it suits me more often than other colors. I can agree with Johnny Cash, in that black gives off a sense of rebellion.
What’s interesting about this outfit is that this top isn’t really a top, it was a one piece bathing suit. I never wear one piece bathing suits, although I’ve contemplated doing so this summer because they’re back in style. I bought this bathing suit to purposely use it as a top. It’s a great piece for going out in this hot humid weather we’re having in NYC. I matched it with my black leather skirt and strappy heels.
