Wearing black doesn't have to be boring, and it isn't! I may be in all black (except the bit of gray in my sweater) but the details make the look. The zipper detailing on the jeans adds a fun touch and the black and gold necklace is a perfect pop over my black tee. So forget all those people that say wearing black makes you boring! Black is the best!

I hope everyone who celebrates has a Happy Easter this weekend! We will be celebrating on Saturday and Sunday with each side of the family, ha ha. But you know what that means: two Easter outfits! WOO!

Cardigan: Charlotte Russe c/o Tanger, Tee: Cullen (Rue La La), Jeans: J Brand c/o Marshalls, Flats: Chanel (Roundabout Resale), Necklace: House of Harlow (South Moon Under)

Slightly warmer weather is the perfect opportunity to wear thin layers, like this pretty Tahari sweater. It is super thin and super soft but once we hit the super cold temperatures I find myself wearing it less and less in favor of my chunkier knits. I wore this to hang out at my Grandmother's house over the weekend.

Cardigan: Tahari (TJ Maxx) , Tee: Cullen (Rue La La), Jeans: Michael Kors (Marshalls), Flats: Diane von Furstenberg (Marshalls)

I bought this skirt with a gift card back in April at the Clinton Crossing shopping event.  It's a size XL but it was only $6 and I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket. I haven't had my Mom make the waist smaller so in these photos I'm wearing it dangerously low on my hips (with shorts underneath). If it was the proper size I have a strong feeling it would be WAY too short on me, so I guess it was a blessing in disguise that they didn't have my size. Ha ha.

Two of the days we were in Athens I changed my outfit for the evening. The first was for my friend Claire's birthday dinner. The second was because I hadn't taken pictures in my DKNY dress yet (even though I wore it in London one night.) It was still fairly warm in the evenings so I didn't really need the tights with my first outfit.

Tee: Cullen (Rue La La), Dress: 3.1 Phillip Lim (Roundabout Resale), Tights c/o Wolford, Necklace: Santorini, Boots: Vince Camuto (Marshalls), Rings: old, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lumo 'Violet

Dress: DKNY (NET-A-PORTER), Sandals: Ancient Greek Sandals 'Alethea'

This hoodie used to be one of my favorite pieces of clothing! I got it at least 8 years ago at TJ Maxx, an awesome clearance find. I think I "splurged" and paid $30 for it...funny how that used to be a splurge. I shudder to think of what my splurges cost now.  Anywhooooo...I try to bring this out at least once a year even though I don't wear hoodies too often anymore. I also have to be selevtive about when I wear it because some of the sequins have started falling off from too much love over the years. I'm not sure if it ever made it's way on to the blog, so that is being rectified now! (I found one post with it, from when Lydia and I went to see The Princess Bride at the drive-in, but you can't really tell what the pattern is like)

This outfit and hair combo makes me look super sporty! Brings me back to my days of gymnastics...wish I could go back and compete again! We're to think I haven't competed in almost 10 years, closer to 9.

Hoodie: Vertigo Paris (TJ Maxx, old), Tee: Cullen (Rue La La), Jeans: Mother c/o Marshalls, Sneakers: Keds (DSW), Necklace: Indulgems (Gilt Groupe), Rings: old, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lumo 'Violet, Lumo 'Rope',

P.S. Enjoy this throwback video (if it doesn't play, use this link)
Who says you can't shop in the boys department? Not I! This sweater is from Neiman Marcus and Target holiday collaboration in 2012. I did actually get this in a size smaller than I should have, but they were sold out of larger (men's) sizes. But hey, at least now I can say I fit in a boy's medium and the shrunken fit is in.

Tee: Cullen Cashmere (Rue La La), Sweater: Rag & Bone x Neiman Marcus & Target, Jeans: J Brand c/o Marshalls, Flats: Chaps (Kohl's)

In contrast to yesterday's post, where I didn't want to wear all black, here's a black outfit! As you can see, my mood changes on the day. This is an outfit I find myself wearing over and over again because it's so easy. Some people don't like repeating outfits, I say why not?! If you like it, wear it again. Most people won't notice, and if they do, who cares?

I just love how the sweater barely comes above the hem of my skirt, the play in proportion makes me feel a lot taller than my 5'2" height. The sweater isn't supposed to be this long, but I bought a size large because it was all they had and I liked it. As long as I don't button it, you'd never know that it's the wrong size. I believe it was only $20 and I've had it for at least 4 years.

And how cute are these bow earrings from Lauren Conrad's collection at Kohl's?

This is what I wore on Sunday for our Labor Day get together.  I went a little patriotic with the skirt and necklace but didn't want to be too obvious. Ha ha.  This skirt is another one of my $10 finds last year during Coco's Madison store closing sale. It was brand new with tags and I thought it was fun so I picked it up! This is the first time I'm wearing it...oooops! It's a thick skirt though so perhaps I'll try to wear it some more through the Fall too. But then again, I'm not sure I can pull off this shape an length, I have to wear really tall shoes to not look stumpy.

Apparently I was in a black and white mod this week, with a little purple/burgundy thrown in. I made it through a week (well, three days) without wearing jeans!  But this weekend I predict will be jean junction. Yes, I know that makes no sense, but I like an alliteration. 

I hope everyone has exciting weekend plans. I'm making my monthly visit to my aunt and uncle's house for a massage (for me) and website updates (for my aunt.) Then I will hopefully go to a friend's house to watch the Oscars, but there is an impending snowstorm that might foil those plans.
