Dressed in the Dark

sweater: mango (available here) // pants: gap (available here btw they run about 2 sizes small so order up!!) // shoes: 3.1 phillip lim (similar here) // bag: madewell (available here) // scarf: old, similar here 
These days I literally get dressed in the dark…I try to wake up at least half an hour before Doodle does to drink some coffee and get prepared for the day. That being said, have I ever mentioned how much I lurve navy blue? Its such a great neutral that's a little less harsh than black. I'm still thrilled with the decision that I made it one of my wedding colors AND it literally flatters every skin tone. The one big misconception about navy is that you can't wear it with black. You TOTALLY can, you just have to make it look like you didn't get dressed in the dark and meant to pair black and blue. The easiest way to test the waters with this pairing is a monochromatic navy outfit with black accessories and shoes…now go forth and conquer.


  1. I always have to get up before my kids to "wake up" first. Thank god mine always slept till at least 7:30-8. I figured I wouldn't get as lucky with the 2nd, but I did. When you have kids, there's nothing more important than SLEEP! In fact I was so mad this morning because I got up a tad earlier than usual and what do ya know..2 seconds later my daughter is up..grrrrrrr..HATE it!
    Anyway enough with all that, this look is killer. I LOVE those pants and the scarf is a perfect accessory! I used to HATE black and navy myself..not any the 2 together!
    Have a great one love!
