{ when in doubt wear black }

2-1 (2) 1-5 (2)

Recently, I had a full day of artwork & meetings followed by a night event in Philadelphia.  I was struggling to figure out what to wear for a full busy day-to-night outfit, then I thought "what would I dress my illustrations in?" The answer: I'm tired, so black seems easy. Therefore, I went with a black swiss dot and lace dress by Madison Marcus and a very masculine black blazer by J. Crew (I have so many J. Crew blazers, it hurts). I grabbed a hunter green clutch to break things up (only slightly) and then paired it all with nude heels just to make sure that it didn't feel too corporate for my taste. When I looked in the mirror, I still felt a bit bland, so I added a quick braid to the top of my pony just to give it "that special something". I felt right at home all day- in meetings, in the office, and at a work event. Hope it will inspire you to mix up your basic at-work black.
