Sometimes you just have to go with the old standby – black.  It always looks professional, you can dress it up or down and it goes with just about anything.  In fact, when I got married I asked my bridesmaids to wear a black dress.  They got to choose whatever they wanted.  I knew that black dresses accentuated with lavender shawls (my gift to them) would look incredibly classy.

So when I don’t know what to wear I pull out my black pants and pair them with a fun top.

Black may not be the trendiest thing on the planet, but it’s always in style.

But what about those trendier items?  Do you want to see what they look like in the real world?  Or maybe you just want to see how to jazz up a pair of black pants in other ways. Well, now’s your chance!


You Pick Wednesday starts tomorrow!  So, send your picks to to get in on the fun!

  • See a photo of an outfit online that you love and want to know how to make it happen in real life?  Send the photo to and I’ll show you how!
  • Have something in your closet that you’re not sure how to style?  Send a pic or a link to a similar item to and I’ll take on the challenge.
  • Did I wear something that you want to see again?  Let me know and I’ll make it reappear!

Basically, Wednesdays are YOUR day to tell me what you want to see!

    I like the black bridesmaids dresses! And that they got to pick their style. I wonder what my sister will pick for us. Not related, but I am going to have to work hard on not getting a funky tan next summer. Assuming they get married then.

      I don’t know if any of them ever got to wear their dresses again, but I wanted them to take the chance to get a little black dress in their closet!

    Hi! A few weeks ago I stumbled into your site and I loved the ruffled teal tank top. Today I walked into a random boutique and found it, here in my country, El Salvador! What are the odds?! And it’s Ann Taylor. By the way it looks great with almost any color: black, beige, dark denim, white…It’s the perfect top. 🙂
