Typically on Mondays I like to stay comfortable in leggings and an oversize tunic (at least when I’m not wearing sweats). It always helps me to transition from the weekend back to the work week. Last night, however, I was drinking my red wine and watching Breakfast at Tiffany’s and I got inspired by Holly Golightly and thought, “No sweats tomorrow…I am wearing all black with gorgeous pearls and I’m going to have a magnificent updo, and in about 10 minutes I will look polished and put together.” Well *sigh* obviously that did not happen…because I am a real person…but I did manage to wear all black and some heels so I figure I’m doing pretty good for a Monday.
I had been waiting to bust out this red coat and today was the perfect day. It was pretty cold this morning and the red was such a great addition to the all black outfit. Monochromatic looks are a favorite of mine, particularly an all black look, because you can add any pop of color to it, whether it be in the form of a coat, jewelry, shoes, etc. I’m feeling inspired to add some more colorful coats to my wardrobe. I’m loving this, this and this from Nordstrom.
