Outfit Post: Taking the Black

First off, sorry for dropping a Game of Thrones reference into today’s post title. I can’t help but let my inner nerd flag fly – I’ve been trying to finish the fourth book the last few days so GOT references are slowly working their way into everyday life. p.s. – the new season starts April 6th. Get excited. No, just me. That’s cool.

Moving on. Today’s post is reflective of what I’ve been wearing non-stop since this polar vortex, winter mess started a month or so ago. The bad news, it’s supposed to snow here again today which doesn’t even begin to compare to the hurt Mother Nature has been putting on the entire east coast. The good news, it’s supposed to warm up next week so maybe we can finally put the gray winter looks behind us and embrace a little more color. Fingers crossed.

Also, I just realized that this is a little dark for the holiday so I’ll try and pop back in later today with a little bit of festive color. Last year, I was a little more up on my Valentine’s game so I’ll throw it back to these pretty, festive posts.

Black Tee: Leith from Nordstrom; Pants: J.Crew Maternity; Vest: Apricot Lane (old – seen here and here); Burgundy Bag: Sole Society; Necklace: c/o Julie Vos; Boots: c/o Sole Society; Bracelet: Stella & Dot; Gold Watch: Coach

And just so you know how freaking cold I was shooting these pictures, here’s a little outtake loving on this Friday for a good laugh.

    That vest is fab! I love that you featured it with the all black. And this is just the perfect Vday outfit 😉 I was not feeling the pink/red at all this year!
