Even though I had a wonderful Mother's Day, the weather was anything but wonderful. It was very cold, dreary, and misty. I had planned to wear a colorful, floral outfit on the holiday, but changed my plans when I saw the weather forecast. My daughter was in town for the weekend, and when we were shopping at JCP on Friday, she spotted this cute pleather skirt on clearance for only $14.99 (I actually only paid $10.00 for it because I had a coupon!). I was so happy Ashley was with me this day, because I rarely shop clearance racks (I don't have the patience to sort through them), and I never would have seen this skirt without her. I didn't think I would be able to wear it until fall, but with the cooler weather, I was able to wear it still this spring! It's probably the first time in my life I have ever been happy to have cooler weather!
The thin coat was perfect for the day, as I was able to take it on and off at church. I had it off for most of the morning, during worship practice and Christian Education, but when they turned the ceiling fan on right above where I was sitting (ugh! I really don't like it when they do that), the coat when on!
And here are more all black outfits from Pinterest for your inspiration:
Add just a pop of color in your shoes, handbag, or jewelry:
So what about you? What do you think of the all-black trend? Have you ever worn all black from head to toe before other than to a funeral? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy

I always hate admitting that I hate shopping clearance racks, too! That skirt is such a great find, though and I love the detail shot you gave us of it. You look great! Mother's Day should have been rainy here, but somehow we lucked out with some great weather!ReplyDelete
