So I'm back to blogging again and I'm very excited to bring you this brand, spanking new outfit post! In my return from holidaying in The Philippines, I've become more inspired... I guess a break from all the stresses of a working week and life in general can do you well. Also, I have some new additions to my wardrobe, part of me wishes I could of only attended fashion week and not be on a tropical holiday. But that's that and I have already penciled in MBFWA in for next year. 

If you follow me on Instagram (@youronlyblackswan), you may have caught my snap with Darren from Boy Moments and our MIB (Men In Black) shopping moment. Both of us happened to buy this jacquard, luxe black suit from Seed Heritage. The luminous fabric and jacquard weave instantly caught our eyes and after some funny change room antics, we decided to call it our own. We thought it was pretty amazing how the same suit can look very different on another person. Lately, I've wanted to invest in quality, wardrobe staples and this two-piece ensemble definitely passes the mark. Styled with a vibrant, Versace print inspired blouse by Zara, the decadent pattern and bright colours add contrast and vitality to the outfit. As you may know, I love tribal statement necklaces, so this beaded chain piece also from Zara adds an edgy touch to an overall classic ensemble. To complete the look, stilettos and a snakeskin satchel bag by Charles and Kleith

I know for sure I will be wearing this outfit again, teaming it up with other collared shirts and mix-matching the suit pants and jacket with other items in my wardrobe. The more wears the better.

If you haven't picked up on the latest blog news, Your Only Black Swan is now and no longer a 'blogspot'. Check out my little 'black swan favicon' in the tab bar but refreshing your cache. It's pretty cute if I say so myself :)

I've just about started reviewing my photos from my holiday and hope to share some with you soon.

Happy week everyone!
