6 of 30: Black Shirtdress with Coral Cardigan, Striped Tights and Cognac Accessories.

Another quick little post for you today. It has been a rough night. Ahhhh I hate when Vivian gets sick - it breaks my heart. =( Thank you to those of you who were concerned and sent some positive juju my way. Much appreciated. =)

I am finally wearing one of the 2 Dresses I included in my 30 for 30 challenge. The other one (the Striped one) will be seen in the next 2nd post (I hope that makes sense LOL.) I had to wear Tights again because it was cold and my Black Shirt-dress has elbow sleeves. I added the 3/4-sleeve Coral Cardigan for some warmth. My Striped Knit Tights were worn previously in a more Winter Dress Outfit. I think they work well with the Coral on top and the Cognac Boots, since they have Cognac, Gray & Bordeaux Stripes. What do you think?
Pros: You can't go wrong with a Classic Black Shirt-dress. This one is Ponte (even better) and it is from White House Black Market. They make some of the Best Dresses.
Cons: Despite the shot of Coral, this is rather a Wintery Outfit for early April, but it was cold and rainy damn it. I'd much rather wear it without Tights and my Leopard Ballet Flats.
Black, Belted, Ponte, Elbow-Sleeve Shirt-dress w/ Silver Buttons & Chest Pockets: White House Black Market.
Coral, 3/4 Sleeve Cardigan w/ Silver Buttons: White House Black Market.
Cognac, Real Leather, Skinny Belt w/ Gold Buckle: c/o a Local Accessories Boutique.

Black/Gray/Burgundy/Camel, Striped, Ribbed, Knit Tights: Target.

  2. I definitely think you should wear this again once it warms up without tights and your leopard flats, it'll be so cute! I do really like the pink with the black dress here, cute!

  3. Omg those tights! They're so flattering and pretty. I love how they're a statement with stripes, yet are subdued by the muted color palette. This is such a pretty look! Thanks again for stopping by my blog; it is so nice to meet you!

  11. I agree that a black shirt dress is a classic piece, Ada! I like you how added the striped tights--they are a great way to add both warmth and color. =)
