You Can Never Have Too Much Black Leather!

The other day I was getting dressed and thought to myself, “this outfit would be perfect with my simple black wedges.” Then I realized I didn’t have  simple black wedges. I only had fancy scalloped suede wedges – not exactly your everyday, wear-to-school shoes. So that day I went out to look for some simple black wedges and found these at Nine West on my first try. They were on sale. Am I good or what? Go ahead and admit it: I’m the best shopper ever. Congratulations on knowing me.

This trench is another old friend I found during my recent coat closet clean-up. I scored it at the Thakoon collection that came to Target in early 2009. At the time, I was worried that it was too daring and I would think it looked ridiculous in a couple years, but I think I can safely say it’s still pretty awesome 4 years later.

And in other news, IT’S FEBRUARY! That means it’s the first day of my Take One, Pass it On outfit remix challenge. I’m pretty excited. But the real fun starts in my next outfit when I take one item from this outfit (spoiler alert: it’s the polka dot tank) and mix it into a new outfit.

See this post for more details on the remix and to find out how you can participate and get your link posted!

I try not to walk out of the house looking like a box of free crayons from Applebee’s, but sometimes it just happens. I decided I’m OK with it, especially when it’s cute and cozy like this outfit.

I wore this Saturday to class and then to dinner with friends before I changed into my Halloween costume for the night (but you don’t get to see that until tomorrow).

On another note, I hope all of you on the east coast kept safe during the storm yesterday. Mother Nature is a moody bitch sometimes. If you know anyone who was in the path of Sandy, be sure to call and check on them! And if you’re feeling charitable, you can donate to the Red Cross here.
