an all black ensemble

When I try to come up with cute outfits for cold weather it seems to get repetitive – jeans with layers. I know, it’s nothing special, but when it’s gloomy outside it’s hard to get inspired. This all black ensemble is exactly what I needed to see to kick start my inspiration. The touch of chocolate and fur make it perfect in my eyes. I’m off to recreate this outfit. Hope it inspires you as well!

    Black and chocolate brown are the perfect winter combination in my book. And that hat looks so cozy! Perfect for the snowy snowy day we're having here in Boston.


    i wore black and brown today and your post just reassured me that it was acceptable. thank you!

    Gorgeous indeed πŸ™‚ Although I do get a bit lazy when it comes to style theses days too, winter is too long !!

    Just found your blog and I'm totally smitten. I love that you mix a little style in, too, because I'm clueless when it comes to interior, so the mix is really appealing to readers like me! Can't wait to read more! officially following. : )

    ps. How amazing is this girl's hair and that hat?! Oh my that hat…

    Love it! Black/brown combos are my favorite.


    Her browns are the rich, foxy cognac browns that match her hair.

    That is where her wit shows.

    Really love seeing the black in combination with brown. Still perfect for cold weather but with just a little "umph"! Hope to see some pictures of you working this look πŸ™‚

    Oh, I feel the same way, Caitlin: the last few mornings I have felt so uninspired with my outfits. You've given me the kick I need to sort myself out! πŸ˜‰

    Love her outfit…but what I really want is her hair color. I wonder if I would look good or totally crazy as a red head?
