Once You Go Black

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen a sneak peek I shared from the exciting day we had around here. After styling this outfit, with the help of my friend Mandy, for Alt Summit last weekend, I knew I needed the perfect opportunity to wear it again. Today provided me that perfect opportunity. While I can’t share… just yet… all that went on around here today, I had to share a sneak peek of what I wore. Since my sweet friend Miranda was onsite today taking behind the scenes pictures, she snagged a few shots of my outfit for me. 


 I just absolutely love these pants! I fell in love with them while shopping at Nordstrom and only tried them on because they were under $50. They are completely out of my comfort zone and what I would normally pick out to wear, but I really wanted to take a risk and give them a try. The moment I got them on I knew I needed to own them. Quickly, they’ve turned into one of my favorite recent purchases. They’re comfy, light weight and flattering on.  


Normally I work hard to steer clear of outfits that consist of mostly black because I love bright and bold colors, but with this Stella & Dot piece, it add just the right amount of glam and color to the outfit. It gives it some umph, don’t you think? My friend Mandy is a consultant for them and when she showed me this piece, I knew I had to have it. In fact, I’m pretty sure everyone needs this baby in their jewelry box.
