Back to the basics

dress: Old Navy

I am a lover of all things bright and colorful, but sometimes staying neutral can be a good thing. This week Megan and Keely are hosting a neutrals week challenge so why don't you join in on the fun?

Someone commented on my flickr that this look was very mod and beatnik, which, now seeing it, I suppose it is, although I don't feel nearly that cool.

I guess the best thing about a basic black sweater dress is how versatile it can be with the addition of different accessories.

Black sweater dresses are quite versatile. Love how you kept the whole outfit all black! very chic :)

Cara said...

Mod and beatnik? Aren't those a little opposite!? I guess that's the benefit of simple, pulled together outfits - they are so easy to interpret different ways!

Megan said...

I'm the one who commented on your flickr. I guess by Mod I meant "I can see you wearing this riding a Vespa" and by Beatnik I meant "all black and snapping your fingers at spoken word poetry". =)

In other words, Me Like!

The all black look sis really sophisticated, and you also look super comfortable.

Megan Mae said...

Aww I think you look awesome. Your blue wall is the perfect accessory. You do look all svelte and chic. Thanks for joining us this week.

I think it's a great look, very sleek and even a little sassy! And I love those boots!!

The Beatnik look with a twist is fan on you.

Great minds think alike! I wore basically the same thing for today's challenge- ha! I love your take! :)

I'm glad I found your blog through the challenge!
