Dark & Stormy

dark-and-stormy

It’s cold and snowy here in NYC.  Something about this weather inspires me to go monochromatic in a big way and hide out in a big gray sweater.  I love pairing gray with black for a chic dark-and-stormy look.  Here’s three ways to do it and the perfect cold-weather toppers.

Since it’s been so cold out, I haven’t had the chance to take any outfit shots.  I find it really hard to take off the sleeping bag I call a coat long enough to get on the subway these days.  Luckily, I had this post just waiting for the right time to go out.  In it, I paired a navy polka dot blouse with black jeans proving yet again that you can wear navy and black.  It’s actually really chic and subtly modern.  I love how the silk blouse softens the look and the pendant necklace creates a fun layer.  The bag is a nice pop of color in another shade of blue I adore.  Here’s to some “warmer” days to come for more outfit inspiration.
