coast to coast challenge

Today’s #CoastToCoastChallenge: BLACK OUT.

So I generally wear a lot of black (it’s just a genuinely classy color), so it was hard for me to find a combo of something I’d never worn. I dug this dress out of the bowels of my closet and because it’s winter (okay, a Central CA winter at about 65 degrees), I paired it with some black leggings. I also threw on a black fedora (courtesy of Target) for a distinctly hipster feel and added a loud, but fun, copper necklace to highlight the copper decorations in the dress.

Black doesn’t have to be a scary color, especially if you can pair it up with something fun. And jumping outside your comfort zone (I don’t think I’ve ever worn this dress w/leggings in public) can be a lot of fun too.
