Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Saturday afternoon! Hopefully a bit less rainy and dreary than it is where I am.

Today’s outfit is a somewhat of a reflection of the weather. The colors are cooler and darker almost resembling that of the sky and general atmosphere of the day. Here I wore my navy shift dress with black tights. It is said that navy and black should not be paired together, but I disagree. I feel almost any color combination can be done if you know how to correctly approach it. I paired the black tights, heels, and clutch to add a sense of uniformity among the colors creating a greater sense of cohesion. Since the dress is navy, it actually stands out in a subtle form against the black making my upper half of my body more of a focal point rather than my legs. The combination of the black tights and heels also elongates my legs and makes the nautical feel of the dress [usually a more summer print] more appropriate for a fall look.  The addition of the grey scarf really ties the look together by breaking up the lines of the dress, adding a soft pop of color, and providing warmth.
