I may not have time these crazy days to comment on threads but I do pop in and have a look and was absolutely inspired by Carla's black/white/cognac outfit with pointy flats http://youlookfab.com/welookfa.....and-cognac. I knew I had to find a way to copy the elements of this outfit.

I'm helping to facilitate in morning huddle today so will be reaching up and bending down to write on flip charts so no skirt like lovely Carla. I chose my black skinnies instead, added my black leather belt and instead of true white, chose my cream lace front tee as my light element. On top of that, I'm debuting my new cognac-caramel faux leather jacket. This is not a colour I would normally wear, especially near my face. But if I wear more flatting colours up top and add a bolder lipstick, I'm ok (at least I think I'm ok?).

For my pointy flats, I went with my pony hair/black leather pointy oxfords. Accessories include my black leather handbag, rose gold/black watch, gold wedding ring and black/white specs. A swipe of berry coloured lipstick finishes off the outfit.

So does this colour combination work for me? I've partially unzipped the sleeves and turned them up but I think I might zip them again and scrunch instead so my wrist (and my watch) shows). Would love to hear your thoughts, suggestions and critiques of this outfit.
