i’m wearing: h&m lace top, h&m skirt (similar), spotted haircalf wristlet and cuff c/o ann taylor and patent pointy heels c/o marshalls (not shown).

before i started blogging, i never thought black & blue went together. even typing it makes me think of a bruise…lol. but now it is one of my favorite combos! i’m also pretty excited that dressing matchy-matchy is coming back in style. i was never good at trying to NOT match on purpose. you see, i worked at wet seal in the early 90’s so i could rock a matching double sock and scrunchie like no other. =)

    Okay, that’s it – I have got to try this black & cobalt trend because I keep seeing it everywhere and these are colors I actually have in my closet! Love this lace top on you and you’re lucky I don’t live closer or I would come over and steal that AT clutch! πŸ™‚

    When the blue is so bright, definitely black works. It’s those dark navys that have ppl wondering if I got dressed in the dark πŸ˜‰

    I love this look! The lace top is gorgeous and the cobalt skirt looks perfect with it. And I only recently stepped inside a wet seal for the first time EVER this past summer, I scored 5 tie dyed tanks for $20… And then last weekend I got a houndstooth cardigan, 100% cotton for $20 πŸ™‚

    Such a cute look on you! You’re so little and I’m always surprised when I remember that you’re a mommy. Loving the matchy matchy too. So easy and fun!
