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.
