This was a black and white sort of day, with just a touch of red lipstick to give it a kick.

Black blazer, black vest (Talbots), black and white t-shirt (Joe Fresh), black pants (Banana Republic), white necklace (Fine Finds), black felt hat (C'est La Vie) and black wedges (Nine West).

What is evident in this photo is that I need new black wedges. I've had these Nine West loafer style suede wedges for probably 5 years.  I have worn them to death. And it shows.  So add new black shoes that will look fantastic with pants and are comfortable to my list. 

Full Disclosure - I put the lipstick on for the picture - 5 minutes before I changed out of this outfit to make dinner.  Yup the outfit was just fine without lipstick ALL day  but somehow needed lipstick before I could put it on the internet.
