Welcome to Neutrals Week, everyone! I'm happy to say we've got some newcomers this challenge, as well as some returning participants from past challenges. If you're new to the challenge or just came across this: Please feel free to sign up any time during this week to participate - It's not too late! For those participating, please give the list a peruse and say hi to some of your fellows!

This week is starting out with everyone's favorite comfort zone - black! Black is the neutral we all pull to feel slim, chic, and badass. I pulled some of my fav black pieces today and amped them up with some black argyle tights, silver snakeskin, and a thick sweater. It's absolutely pouring so I've got porch pictures today.

I got photobombed by this little cutie. Her name is Daisy. She's my nephew's puppy whom we're dog sitting for the week. She's full of boundless puppy energy and is wiggly as can be.

I wish I could absorb some of that energy because I've got my last Monday class of the semester tonight. I'm looking forward to it, but I'm also extremely busy. Goodtimes!

  5. You do look amazing in this outfit. Very sophisticated with an edge to it. Love the sweater. I am going to try to participate in neutrals week.
    Puppies do have lots of energy that it would definitely be nice to take just a bit of!

  8. So my husband was peering over my shoulder as I went through my blogs today and said: "why do you follow so many goths? You don't dress that darkly. Yesterday was weird when you were in all black". Oh, silly boy, that's why you have to read and not just look at the pictures!
    I love this look. It's a good combination of, errr, goth, and professional!

  10. And I've finally made it to my blogging bestie! I think I visited all the participant's blogs tonight. I LOVE this! That skirt is killer on you and those boots are a-mazing, as are your argyle tights and bit of sparkle. Well, in a word. Fabulous!
