How to Accessorize | Black & Blue

Black & Blue
This is not what I had picked out or ironed this morning to wear to work. Sometimes I just change my mind last minute when I’m supposed to be out of the door dropping my car off at the mechanic. Clearly, that’s what husbands are for, right?

I love this skirt but don’t wear it that often. Sometimes it’s a bit difficult to pull off the horizontal stripes and the fullness of it but it has pockets and it feels so light hearted to me me. Even though it’s grey and black the shape seems whimsical to me. And because the material is a bit heavier and darker I wanted to wear it one more time before spring comes (yes, I believe it is slowly starting to creep in). So I paired it with a bright blue layering top and black tank and added a dash of red with my lips, belt and necklace. Full color lipstick really has become my go to accessory lately and I blame Nikkia of Silver Lips Beauty for turning me on to Ruby Woo lipstick. It’s absolute perfection.

I should also be honest and admit that this morning I had on my black Steve Madden ankle booties (because they go so well with short skirts and black opaque tights) but as I was grabbing my tripod I sunk into a very deep spot of mud. So now I’m wearing this outfit with black cap toe ballet flats instead of boots but I think it’s just as cute.

And the husband got the car to the mechanic just in time…and he just had to wait 10 minutes for me to pick him up. Clearly, he loves me.

What I’m Wearing: Scoop neck layering T-shirt, Old Navy | Tank, Target | Skirt, Gap | Tights, Spanx | Ankle Boots, Steve Madden | Necklace, Street Vendor in San Francisco (name’s Cheryl) | Belt, TJMaxx | Lipstick, MAC Ruby Woo

    • @Gabriella Thank you, this really is one of my favorite skirts. I know the rules say don’t do horizontal stripes but I love it! And it has pockets, how can I resist?!
