I wore this to work on a day that I wanted a simple and classic look. So I left my chunky jewelry and multicolored/patterned threads at home and instead went for a simple black and grey combo. Of course, I still wore these amazing vintage earrings – have to do a close up of those! – and textured tights…I thought the color of the tights looked a little weird on my legs for some reason. Maybe because they’re neutral and bookended by black, it looks a little harsh? Not sure but I still liked the look overall.

I need to practice getting both my feet and my head in pictures. These little flats from Go Jane are so comfortable and were very inexpensive. They’re not the most well made shoes in the world, in fact I took a Sharpie to some loose white stitching, but they still end up being my go to when I need a simple black ballet flat with a bit of interest to them. They have this great ruffling with buttons on the toe…need to post a closeup of those too.

I’ve become a big belter lately, and not the kind that sings, the kind that always has to have something around my waist…As someone who’s always needed to poke extra holes in my belts to get them to fit, then had extra belt flapping in the wind much to my dismay, I appreciated this Twisty Belt Tutorial from Elaine at ClothedMuch.com. So simple but so amazing! I had my own way of twisting my belt around itself, but this method locks the belt in place so that it doesn’t move at all. Which is great until you start eating a lot and are too exhausted to loosen it and end up with dents in your skin…

Also, Ross is the best place in the world (I checked) for tights. Unless you’re looking for something specific. More on that later…
