Black

I know I have said this recently.. but there is a big part of me right now that is completely into black.

today's outfit.

1. gap straight-leg fit.. these are not black.. but they are almost railroad black-grey-ish..kind of dressy.. but not really.. flat front.

2. gap slim fit.. long.. black and white stripe shirt. little buttons on the sleaves.. and a few buttons on one side of the top.

3. black and white houndsthooth 2 inch headband.. (from here (corey fabric.. new for SPRING..not online:-).

4. and my favorite new shoes. they are rubber black slip on shoes.. with a blig black grosgrain ribbon tie front. literally you can take the ribbon off and throw them in the wash machine. Brand: Okabashi. They are made in the states.. maybe they have a site??? have not checked.

But I am litterally black from head to toe.. little bit of white.

love this Black phase.. but I know it will be short lived.. but it is so easy.. which I think is one of the reasons it is such a classic color. It is the best neutral.. when used in a living space... as a piece of furniture.. it anchors the room.

love it.

I've heard "once you go black, you never go back" but I'm not sure that's what you're talking about. (wink)

Jen, I found the site for those shoes and they're so cute! I posted about you writing about them and how much I like them on my site today!

thanks melissa. i love the ones you posted about .. the brown with the velvet ribbon.

side note.. whole thing on black.. i have to chuckle b/c my "little" blurb up top on my blog talks about how I do not really wear black.. blah blah..

lisagh.. that is especially true in the South (wink)

LOVE the new background on the site Jen! Also love the J Crew jacket on your Christmas list. I have been wanting one of those too!

I know what you mean about black! I wear it to work all of the time because it is so easy and can be chic at the same time. However, I am working on adding more color to my wardrobe.
