Black on Black

{Banana Republic shirt and necklace, thifted skirt, Coach pumps, Rachel Zoe belt, Kenneth Cole bracelet and ring}

Most days I can put an outfit together fairly quickly, but once in a while the process takes much longer than it should. You know those days when you pull out piece after piece and nothing seems to go together - nothing is occasion or weather appropriate, or it's just plain wrinkled (and some days you just really don't feel like pulling that darn steamer out). It's on days like this when I usually end up doing a simple trick - I choose a skirt and a top  in the same or very similar shade. Add a belt to tie the two together and you end up with what looks like a new dress.

I happened to find this skirt at Goodwill, and what a great find it was! It's made out of jersey (Yay! No ironing!) and has a slight sheen and texture, which gives a piece a bit more of a luxurious feel. It's so comfy and versatile, and can be easily transitioned into fall. It's also a great option for traveling.
