Lady in Black.

I am wearing head to toe Black - GASP! I say "gasp" because I rarely wear black, let alone wear it head to toe. OK, so my booties are olive green, that is not because I do not have black booties but I was lazy to grab them from my shoe closet in the basement and to tell you the truth, I'd rather wear these Olive Green Suede Booties. However my Faux Leather Skinny Pants, Fair Isle Sweater (it does have a little white on it), the Panama Felt Hat and the Crossbody Bag are all black. And by the way my socks peeking through the side of my boots are in Black+White Stripes.

I accessorized with Red Lipstick, my Flower Stud Earrings from one of my January boxes from Rocksbox (I ended up keeping them since I loved them and they were a great deal - you have seen me wearing them a lot, lately) and this Reversible Gold-Tone Choker which has a few Glass Beads on the front - also from Rocksbox. Just because you wear a closed neckline like a crew-neck, that doesn't mean you can skip a necklace. Go for a dainty necklace that sits close to the neck or for a choker and we all know chokers are so on trend this Fall+Winter season. What about you?! Are you a fan of wearing all black and what are some tips in regards to wearing head to toe black?! Let me know in the comments. =)

Below is another very similar look minus the hat and IRL I was carrying a Cognac Leather Tote that day rather than a Black Handbag.

By the way I will have more Valentine-inspired Mommy+Mini Style Posts throughout February in the blog, even-though today was Valentine's day and I hope you enjoyed it very much with any and all of your loved ones. Truth is we have been wearing coordinating looks inspired by February 14th all this month and even wore some today. Plus I love a good mommy+me style post. I hope you don't mind. Stay tuned for a new Thursday Moda tomorrow night. It will be live at 6.00 PM Eastern Time and I got the gorgeous and lovely Kristin co-hosting with me. =)
