Black & Blue

I’ve sat down a dozen times, trying to come up with the perfect “hiatus-over” post.  And come up with nothing.  Instead, I’m going to jump right back in like nothing ever happened (except of course, for this short blurb…….)

No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Dot Brocade: JCrew
Belt: Gap (old)
Flax Pump: Nine West

Black and blue are still my two least favorite colors to combine.  Maybe it’s because I feel like everything from my top to my shoes is so dark – I love wearing black, but not head to toe black – it’s almost too severe sometimes.  I think next time I will go with a pair of tights with a bit more sheen to them.  What do you think?

    What a adorable outfit! I love the polka dot skirt!!

  2. Rachel G says:

    I like the outfit! Though you could definitely brighten it up a little with some tights in an unexpected color: cream or white or fuchsia, for that matter!
    I wear head to toe black all the time for school–and that's why I don't like it!

    Gorgeous! I am in love with this outfit!!!

    I like the idea of lighter tights. I would wear this outfit with dark blue, non-shiny shoes. What do you think?

    Fabulous outfit! I love how you added the belt! I'm your newest follower 🙂 I'd love for you to follow my blog too. xo

  10. I like it! If you want to change it up next time/break up all the dark, maybe try a different belt – white or another bright color? Tights with more sheen or a different color to coordinate with the belt could help to. But it's still great as-is. 🙂

    I really like the look! Even though it's all dark colors it looks well put together and the jacket and the skirt are different styles so it looks like you put some thought in.
    Love the skirt especially and the jacket is super cute!

    That's a cute outfit. I like the downtown field to make the skirt not so formal.

  17. These are pretty amazing pictures of you! I do like the sunlight coming from behind =] Also, that skirt! Oh, that pencil skirt!
