30 for 30: Outfit 8







Occasion:

Well, the clock just struck 2:00 AM...and I can't sleep. D snoring away in our bedroom so not only could I not sleep, I couldn't even hear myself think! What better to do with my time awake than blog? So here goes my attempt at 2AM, utter exhaustion, can't sleep, counting down the hours until I have to wake up post. Please bear with me if it's totally nonsensical, and I promise, the next post I do will be after I have slept and hopefully it will make up for this one:)

I don't know about you, but some days I just feel like a good black-white-grey outfit. I checked weather.com the night before, and it said that it would be raining when I woke up the next morning. Usually on grey, rainy days I opt for colors to brighten my mood, I wasn't so excited about the prospect of waking up to rain and the impending delay it would have on my morning commute into Manhattan. Because of this, I chose a bunch of neutral pieces to pair together. It had the potential to be a pretty boring outfit, but I think I did a pretty good job sprucing it up with accessories:)

I've really been enjoying this cream tunic top. I bought it on super sale at the GAP a few weeks ago; and I had every intention to save it for spring, but it really spoke to me when I was picking out my 30 for 30 pieces, and I am so glad that it did. So far it has really been carrying its weight around here in the challenge! Since I wore it tucked in a few outfits ago, I wanted to wear it untucked so y'all could see it in its tunic-y glory. I wore it over a black pencil skirt and topped it with this fun satin trimmed grey cardigan. The accessories bring the whole ensemble together; the wide belt, fun flower necklace, grey knitted beret, and the black fringy moccasins all work together to finish off the look:)

What do you do at night when you can't sleep? What do you wear when it's rainy out?
