Wore Collaboration: All Black

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

I am so excited about today’s post, because the lovely and oh so pretty Jessica from Love & Loyally is joining me today for this What I Wore post. So we get to peek into her closet and see her fab outfit choices as well.

Jessica and I decided to showcase a color (or some might say a lack of color) that we both have a lot of in our closets – BLACK. You could totally call 2013 my black year because I have worn a lot of it. I rocked black like crazy while I was pregnant to try and minimize the look of my expanding body and I’m still wearing black while I shrink my body back down. Besides providing a slimming look, black is just so chic and timeless. So it’s the perfect color to work with for multiple occasions.

When we selected the color black, I told Jessica “let’s put together an all black outfit that doesn’t look like we are going to a funeral” and funnily enough we both added some leather to our ensembles. Because surely leather is not worn to a funeral. J I love how Jessica sassed up her look by adding polka dots and sequins and then grabbing a hot pink clutch. I am seriously pinning her images now because I want to recreate the look. I added some pearls and bronze shoes to my outfit to add a little pop. The secret to not looking like you are going to a funeral is all in how you accessorize. And everyone knows how I feel about accessories.

My outfit details:
Skirt: Target!!!
T-shirt: H&M.
Cardigan: Zara.
Shoes: Burlington Coat Factory (old).
Pearls: My Grandma's.

Jessica's outfit details: 
Jacket and Blouse: The Limited.
Sequin Top and Pants: J. Crew.
Shoes: Michael Kors.
Clutch: Gap.

  1. I need that Target skirt. Going to check out my Target to see if it's there tomorrow. Found you via the Beltway Bloggers list, love finding other DC area bloggers! http://talenttoplay.blogspot.com

  2. Love that skirt! I bought one like it from Ann Taylor Loft...unfortunately the price tag wasn't so similar :(

  3. I had to wear all black for my school dress code for the last year...so at the moment I never wear it by choice...but I know the farther I get away from school, the more appealing black will seem to me again!
