Dress It Up

I used to make jokes about my mom choosing to wear a black dress to any and every event that she attended. "Mom, they all look the same," I said. "How boring," I said. But she would always insist on it. She still does. Well, guess what! I am officially becoming my mother. She's gonna love this. Black is my go-to color when I don't know what to wear, and this look is no exception.

First, let's talk about this AMAZING coat! I've been searching for the perfect black coat for, literally, years. When I laid my eyes on this black beauty, my heart may have skipped a beat or twelve. I love the silhouette of this one. The cinched in waist and medium length are perfect for my shape. The off-set zipper adds a modern feel to this classic piece while still keeping it timeless.

Gray tights and burgandy socks add layers for cool, late winter-early spring days.

Underneath my fab coat, I'm wearing this jersey swing dress that is both comfy and flattering. The buttons down the middle of the dress create a line for the eye to follow which creates an illusion of a longer, leaner body. I love the sleeves for cool temperatures. 

I layered two dainty necklaces for some shine-one short one and one long one to keep them tangle-free.

I hope ya'll are able to enjoy some pretty spring weather wherever you are! I'm tellin ya, the weather is crazy here in Louisiana. One week it's a beautiful 60-70 degrees, the next...25. Not kidding.

Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned lovin',

PS-Can you guess what song those lyrics are from?! Haha! Obviously, I conclude my posts with whatever pops into my head at that exact moment.
