Navy and Black

Christmas is SO CLOSE and this navy and black outfit makes me feel even more festive. I wore this ensemble to Ashlee’s brunch this last Saturday where she had a stylist from Veluxe come do our hair. How fun is that?! Delicious breakfast foods, cocktails and a hair stylist: The perfect way to start the weekend. I opted to wear one of my favorite color combinations – navy and black – with items I’ve had for years in my closet. I can’t remember how much they were but we’re talking less than $50 for the whole look.

This navy dress I picked up at Primark in London in 2012. Yep, it’s been that long. I’m a firm believer in taking good care of your clothes, no matter the price tag, because they will last you forever. I paired them with black tights as it was literally freezing that day and my steal of black booties from Target. I’ve had those for at least three years and they’ve held up exceptionally well. I get compliments on them every time I wear them and if I remember correctly, they were less than $30.

One good thing that comes from moving is that you rediscover your closet and bring out items that you haven’t worn in ages. Mixing them with newer pieces makes them relevant again and no one will know how old your “goldies” are. Have you already picked out your festive holiday look? Shop your closet and I’m sure you’ll find some treasures in there.
