It has been rainy and cold over here in Northern California.
The wind has been relentless and the weather just crazy! Then finally, a day — a cloudy day — without rain! When it’s a rainy day, I just want to stay inside with a good book and warm blanket … and of course a cup of coffee or tea. But when it’s been raining for days, I’m excited to get out of the house. So when this day showed no signs of rain, I was excited to be able to get out and dress up.
I think that all women love an outfit that is classy. We love to feel pretty and while looking our best. Yet sometimes it is the simplest things that complete the outfit: and a black top and black skirt will always do the trick. To complete the look, add that color or extra “oomph,” or pair a statement coat with your outfit. It’s sure to complete the look.
Thank goodness turtlenecks came back into style! I love that this simple black turtleneck is so versatile. It gives a refined and classy look to this outfit but can be worn with so much more. I paired a black textured skirt to complement the simple black turtleneck. To complete my classy look, I chose a long coat that had plenty of color to bring my outfit to life, and black pointed pumps.
I scored this amazing jacket at Anthropologie this past winter at their winter tag sale.
As for the shoes, my husband bought them as an early anniversary present for me. I died when I saw them! You can buy the shoes here on the Nordstrom website, or you can buy preowned Louboutins on Poshmark or eBay for a fraction of the original price.
