Black & Deep Poppy

29 December 2012

Hello All!! Yesterday was a gorgeous day so, naturally, I couldn't wait to get outside to take these pics! I wore this outfit to a birthday celebration for my hubby. We went to a nice restaurant to enjoy a great dinner with some amazing friends. For the occasion, I paired this J Crew skirt in deep poppy with a black and cream silk blouse and a black cardigan. This skirt definitely made an otherwise ordinary outfit pop! I scored this skirt a few weeks ago during a sale. I found it on clearance for $24.99 plus an additional 30% off!! I don't have many bright bottoms in my closet so I was super happy when I found this in my size. I love color and the harsh, cold winter months have never deterred me from wearing colorful brights. This skirt is the perfect addition to my closet and even though it's bright, it's surprisingly versatile. It can be paired with neutral colors or, if you're bold, other brights. I chose to go the neutral route for it's debut but will definitely try some other colors in the future. I see this skirt becoming a staple in my closet. Bye, bye boring black and gray!

 Kudos to my husband for snapping these great pics!! He's getting better with his new camera already!
