What I'm Wearing: Wild Child

Hello Everybody, I've reverted back to my color comfort zone: Black. Do you have a color you just tend to gravitate towards in the store? For me, that color, or lack thereof in this case is black. Me and my mom always joke that we aren't going to buy any black and then we end up with a cartload of it. Oh well.  I can't help myself, me and black need each other like Lindsay Lohan needs rehab. Too soon?

I found this fun tiered ruffle skirt at the bottom of the stack on my shelf. That mama hadn't cruised the town in awhile so I took her out for a joy ride. I paired it with gunmetal metallic leggings, a striped top, sassy over-the-knee boots and funky jewelry. The jacket was thrown in the mix because it was cold. Like the last kid picked in dodge ball, it was just there to fill out the team.


Jacket: K-Mart, Top: A'gaci, Skirt: INC via Macy's, Leggings: Express, 
Boots: Second Chance Consignment, Necklace and Bracelet: Wild Iris

  1. I'm intrigued by the mini Santa clothes hanging over your doorway ;)

    Damn, you've got such a killer body to rock this look. Have I said that before? I'm not a perverted old man, I swear.

    My go-to neutral color seems to be brown lately.

  37. That's a great skirt! How is that we seem to "lose" some of our favorite things somewhere in the back of the closet? I do it all the time. The good news, its like finding lost treasure when something resurfaces.

    Oh, yes... black, definitely black.

  40. Black is also my failsafe colour. It always looks expensive and timeless. The metallic tights look really great. People sometimes wear them the wrong way but you've turned it into a chic look.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
