I am a HUGE advocate for mixing navy and black together. I know people have mixed feelings on this matter, but I’ve never quite understood why. This outfit is all about finding blues and blacks in your wardrobe that compliment each other.
Funny enough, it was raining the day I wore this outfit. I really don’t like wearing pants when it’s raining because somehow I always get them wet and then I’m stuck with soggy pants all day. So, if the temperature permits, I like to style skirts for rainy days. I wanted to style the button down skirt of Instagrams past… remember this guy? You’ve seen it a billion times styled with stripes and body suits and platforms, so I challenged myself to make it (somewhat) seasonally appropriate. I grabbed a black, crew neck, knit sweater and my cozy black, knit thigh highs. WARNING: knit thigh highs can look really REALLY bad, so you have to be careful when styling them. They can also add bulk to your thighs if they hit you at the wrong spot. Just wanted to throw that out there. I wanted the effect of wearing ginormous, tall boots, so I slipped my feet into these leather knee high boots. And, I must say, I was quite warm.
Now, for the navy! It’s all about accents. This yummy, navy coat is a go-to in my wardrobe, so I threw that on over the sweater, grabbed my new blue sunglasses and a bandana and I was out the door!
