Black and Blue

Happy Friday everyone!! Is it just me, or did this week feel loooong?  I had shortened weeks for almost all of December, so it was really tough coming back full time.

Top - JCrew Factory (similar here and here) / Pants - Gap (old, similar here and here) / Booties - BCBG (old, similar) / Bag - Unknown (similar here, here, here)

These pants are my new go-to party pants.  I actually originally purchased them a couple of years back when I had to wear dress pants to work every day (we've since gone casual - yessssss), but I recently rediscovered them as an alternative to leggings.  They have a similar look, but are a lot thicker than regular leggings (we're talking fully, 100% opaque) and can actually be worn with a shorter top without being scandalous.  I texted my sister while I was wearing them and said I was out at a party wearing dress pants, and I believe her return text was "WHO ARE YOU??"

This week I'm excited to be co-hosting the Fab Favorites link up with Style Elixir and The Grits Blog.  Be sure to follow these other lovely ladies and join the link up below!

  5. I know some people are nervous about wearing black and blue together, but I love it–you look so pretty!

    1. Thanks Alyssa! I actually really like black and blue together, as long as the shades aren't too close.

  6. Totally agree that this week was so long! It was the first week back at work for a full 5 days... Have a good weekend!
