And I’m back with an actual outfit!! I almost forgot how to take outfit photos. Although, if you follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram I have been posting a few there.

But today’s outfit is in honor of two different style challenges. The first is VV Boutique Style’s January Black Out Challenge. The goal? To not wear black for all of January! So far this week I’ve been doing well. We get two weekly passes so I did wear black shoes on Tuesday. On one hand I don’t like ignoring such a huge chunk of my closet (especially since I only have so many non-black work appropriate pants) but I also like the idea of not falling back on the typical “black pants and a sweater” uniform as I’ve mentioned before. So, we’ll see how long I last.

The other reason I put on this outfit is because of H&K Style Journey’s Pinned It and Did It prompt. I pinned an outfit from Vodka Infused Lemonade a while back and figured since I’m trying to avoid black pants and it’s still too cold for skirts that cobalt pants and a white tweed jacket would be perfect for today. Except I realize now that I totally forgot a necklace. Oh well. My leopard print watch will just have to stand on its own.
