Rain Slate

dress, & cardigan: goodwill, oxfords: mom's, thrifted
I felt very dark when I wore this outfit last Wednesday. Not often do I wear all (or virtually all) black but I happened to enjoy this number. It's finally raining now in the bay area, hence the black trench! I did a little tip-toeing in uncertain territory when I paired these bulkier oxfords with this feminine dress. They are my mom's thrifted, men's dress shoes and I felt like they would add a tougher feel to this outfit.

The shoes are by no means creepers, but for some reason, I felt like... because they are a bit bulkier than my normal black oxfords, they created a similar style...? Anyone else know what I mean? Maybe I'm just crazy. :)

A couple photos below is a pic of my nails; check them out! I had a sleep over with my friend Tegan and she painted them. I think they are super pretty. I need to buy more nail polish and try all the fun tricks I've seen you bloggers do with your nails. Anyway, happy happy Saturday! xx

  15. Sometimes wearing an outfit that's all grey and black can kind of put you in a good mindset for grey dark days. That's how I feel anyways :) I love the pretty nails!! She did a good job.

  16. I'm jealous that you never seem to wear all black, because I can't seem to make an outfit without it, haha! :) You look great, though! I love the grey tights and how you painted one nail different from the rest.. so fun fun. :D You always have the most fun little accessories, too! <3

    b'aw! You are too sweet. I hope your weekend was just splendid. :D :D

  17. For a second I could have sworn you were wearing creepers until I read that they actually weren't, haha! Anyways, they look adorable on you and surely could pass for creepers! And I'm sure a lot cheaper at that :)
