Today’s inspiration photo is a simple black v-neck dress.  Seems easy enough, right?

I actually think the purple dress I wore last Tuesday is a better fit for this inspiration image, but I decided to try something different.  Plus, considering the weather there was no way I was  A. going bare legged or B. wearing a v-neck.  So, I decided to stick with the silhouette of the slightly flared skirt.  This pleated skirt is really the only one I own the fit the bill so here it is.

Also, I attempted to dragoon my husband into take my outfit photos and he wasn’t super thrilled with doing it on our icy (and cold) roof.  Hence the ridiculous look on my face.

Or maybe that’s just my disgust at having to go to work today.  After a weekend celebrating my birthday that started with a painting outing with friends on Thursday and culminated with a wine tasting tour in Michigan with my mom yesterday you can probably understand my reluctance to get back to regular life!
