Cardigan - Halogen
Blouse - F21
Skirt - J. Crew (different color)
Heels - Zara
Jewelry - Target (want this one) and Club Monaco
Bag not shown - Chanel
Nails - Chanel Graphite



 It's been months since I last wore this blouse. It's been at the bottom of a "dry clean" pile. Funny how it got there because it's actually machine washable. Hmmmm, I won't let that happen again. Anyway, I think it's exactly what this outfit needed to break up the black and navy blue. Once hailed as a fashion faux pas, black and blue have become decidedly cool to wear together. I never had a problem with this combination before, but then again, I never thought much about pairing them. Throw in a little leopard and I was ready for a night out to dinner. 



By the way...


I can't stop wearing this J.Crew skirt. Maybe that should have been the focus of this post!

    1. Oh no, I'm sorry! I wonder why that happened? I will fix it soon, once I get access to a computer! But if you type in j crew city mini or j crew crinkle city mini into a search engine, I'm sure links will come up :)

  3. I REALLY love black & blue together...same with brown & black. Maybe I'm a rebal at heart? :) I think your right, the leopard top is the perfect transition to make the outfit work...you look great.

  8. I've always thought that black & blue rule was kind of silly... I mean, how many people wear blue jeans with black tops? Like everyone. Glad you refound that blouse from your dry clean pile! I am so bad with my dryclean-only items; I never get around to taking them in so clothes just remain unworn for ages!

  13. You girls are awesome :) I love that all of you like black and blue together. Alison made a good point about how many of us wear black tops with blue jeans. No one seems to think twice about that! Rules are meant to be broken anyways!

  16. Leopards has been a real staple for me. I no longer reach for the black and white... it's the leopard blouse, scarf or heels that's become my "go-to"!
