Tee - Old Navy
Skirt - Ann Taylor, thrifted
Vest - Fresh Brewed, thrifted
Tights - Target
Boots - Gianni Bini, gift

Group presentation day! I've spent the last month working on a presentation, and finally! got to do it today. We (five) all dressed in black and white and slicked back hair. I realized I don't have much white so I took a thrifted black skirt and black tee to give the effect of a shift dress and added my houndstooth swing vest for my pop of white. Everything went off smoothly and hopefully we did well.

I wasn't as pleased with the choice of boots today, but I haven't really gone after a new pair of black pumps since my Nine West pair wore out. I've been living in boots or my oxfords. Maybe I'll find something, but I'm also trying to go a month without buying shoes! Haha.


  1. I think that the boots give the outfit a nice edge. I really need some new black pumps, but I don't wear them very often so I haven't bought them.

  2. I like it! Great way to coordinate on the presentation too! (Even the hair? Wow... that's way more than we ever did when coordinating...) And a month without shoes? Okay, I admit I frequently go a month without buying shoes NOW... good luck! :)

  3. I LOVE this look! The monochromatic black, the touch of white with the houndstooth, and the slicked back hair - all perfect! So modern and chic! I hope your presentation went well :)

  4. I love this! including the boots!

  5. @ Matt - Our topic was "assimilation" so we "assimilated" by coordinating.

  6. I would have never guessed that the dress really wasn't a dress! Looks so perfectly matched!

  7. I'm glad everything went well! I love your vest and you look so polished with your hair like that!

  8. Holy cow, you look HOT! I love this outfit on you!

    I hope the presentation went well!!!
