Don't you always have a story behind your outfit? Either how you came to buy it, or the difficulty in finding it, or how it is your fave outfit now, etc., etc., etc.
And this outfit is no different! You may remember this outfit from my inspiration wall~I already had the jacket and tee shirts; I just needed to find the perfect black skirt. Well, I searched and the black skirt became ELUSIVE. They were pencil, wrong fabric, too short--couldn't find it. Then WALAH! Finally found it at Zara's--had the fullness I wanted, and I just had to go up a size to get the length right. (note to self--must fix the hem also)
I went for the basic color today, but I know there will be many renditions of this in the future and I will be adding some color. I did try some accouterments~a scarf and a necklace, but neither did it for me--they were too EXPECTED.
OH, so I had to put some color in SOMETHING~so notice the Earrings--did I tell you about my hoops? LOVE HOOPS; and as an added bonus, I will go to a bead store and buy beads to slip on--sort of like the Pandora bead thing--if you do this tho, just make sure the hole in the bead is big enough for your earring! (speaking from experience!)
