It's monday and I'm in the mood for all black broken up by silver/white gold accessories. JP fleece long blazer, low stance, very elegant equestrian vibe, slim long fit and with 50 mph winds and starting temp in the high 20's I want warm today....brrr....... The EF scoop neck jersey tunic is a workhorse, so comfortable, elbow sleeves it's all season and the perfect 33" length for leggings. Danskin leggings, totally opaque, wear like iron - there is no substitute. My EF swish booties have a tough lug sole and the black suede adds texture with the fleece and smooth jersey - and insanely comfortable and warm. Will add later to photos my DKNY black hip belt with silver buckle gives me that long waisted look but the silver pops against the black. Diamond studs, diamond and white gold wedding/engagement rings, my gold schnauzer pendant and necklace. Pendleton coat is new this year. No fur, I don't wear fur but could not find a puffer that I liked without - sad. The coat has a sheen and is very sleek making it more refined than it looks on the model. The Coach mixed media drifter - best bag ever. Again all black but look at the textural interest and line - that's what makes it special. Perfect size, perfect pockets, top handle/crossbody = it's beyond awesome. Form and function and the black hardware means it works with everything day and most evenings. I'm a physician and I wear a white coat every day. This coat is 100% cotton, unisex, with cotton knot buttons and a real back belt with a knot button. Perfect chest pocket with pen slot, perfect front patch pockets. We had them as residents, Angelica was the company, now they are made by Medline and they are the only coats I will wear. Crisp, much nicer than the model, one size up to glide over blazers. Black leather prescription pad holder completes the ensemble. Every once in a while someone goes crazy over the knot buttons, but that kind of detail is very me. It's a signature. So I have the 5 B's going - blazer, bob (inverted bob hair cut), black, booties, belt. Got compliments on the all black outfit and hair cut today. Always a good way to start the week. Texture over color, practical, elegant, simple, timeless but unique. It's all about detail, fit, proportion, and line. All that makes it very me.
