Where I Wore It: work, dinner @ Matchbox, and the movies (2/17/12)
It felt good to dress up a little bit on Friday. As I've probably mentioned before, a dress-code at my place of employment is nonexistent (I'm not joking..people wear whatever they want). Because of that and because of my inability to plan outfits in advance so I don't have to think of them at 6:30 when I'm frantically trying to get ready, I basically throw on whatever is most comfortable and readily available. However, on Friday I knew I was going to go out for dinner and drinks and to see a movie, I planned my outfit! And I looked cute! I may have left the house without my scarf and needed to go to Macy's to buy a new one (what a shame...), but I wore a skirt (I love this skirt, its my favorite and I want to wear it every day)!
I'm slowly becoming a fan of the whole mixing colors with black thing. Growing up, my mother instilled in me several fashion rules, one of which was never (ever, ever) wear blue or brown with black because they are too similar and will look ridiculous. Well, I've decided, that so long as it isn't navy blue or a very dark brown, it is fine. And it works.
Take that, fashion faux pas.
