Black Got The Blues

So I went to an event last night at an art gallery and drank one glass of wine, then decided to go to dinner and have two more glasses. Needless to say this 27 year old body and mind doesn’t recover like it used to and I am a bit foggy today. SO, bare with me as I navigate through the haze and attempt to write this post… In the past navy and black have been consider a faux-pas. As big a no no as wearing white after Labor Day or before Easter. Ya, totally unacceptable. Well, this isn’t your grandmothers fashion world because now it is consider perfectly acceptable, even cool (as is white after Labor Day and before Easter) to wear the miss-matched combo. While I usually wear blue jeans with a black sweater or black pants with a navy sweater I couldn’t resist wearing my new, and by far favorite, navy boots. I’m not sure the rest of Dallas is ready to see navy boots and black because I have never received so many stares as I did wearing this look. But as we know, people always come around to trends. I bet the girl who was giggling at me will be wearing a similar look in less than six months. Then who will be laughing? HA! Okay, okay, I am just kidding.

Although this is an extreme version of the trend you can start out gradual. Wear the navy sweater with the black pants or the black heels with an all navy look. Or, better yet, wear the black bag with a head to toe navy outfit. Très chic! However you can (or are comfortable with) creating this similar look, do it! I promise, navy and black are “IT” and something I think we will be seeing for a looooooong time! In the wise words of Mr. Gunn, “Make it work!”
