Daily Wear (and Tear)

Friday Outfit,Workday Outfit,Black turtleneck sweater,Black wool coat,Beige sweater skirt,Black Boots,Black opaque tights,Kenneth Cole,H&M,HUE,Anne Klein
A chilly Friday here in the Northeast....in fact, it's downright cold.
I should've brought a scarf and gloves w/me today.  I figured my full blown wool winter coat would've been enough.
Boy was I wrong.  (and what am I waiting for?  I have some really fun gloves, mittens, scarves, hats....why not give them a go, right?)

Today I opted for my absolute favorite winter skirt--a camel colored sweater skirt.  I bought this lil' gem at H&M two years ago, maybe more; can't remember.
All I remember is that every year I cannot wait, I MEAN CANNOT WAIT, to wear it!

It's one of those items that lets you break the old-school fashion rule our grandmothers and mothers always told us, "Don't wear black and brown together".
To heck with those rules; since when is it not chic to wear a camel skirt w/black?  I think it looks fantastic. 
In fact, I throw on brown wooden earring almost every single time I throw on this skirt.
So take that!

Lots of posts buzzing around in my head, make sure to stop by this weekend--I'll have more halloween outfits of days gone by, a little shout-out or two (girls you know who you are), my Weekend Rewind (everyone's fave post of mine), and maybe a new segment if I get around to wording it properly (still playing around w/the segment title).

So until then, Happy Friday everyone....or what's left of it (only 45min until midnight here on the eastcoast--someone remind me I'm not old enough to be wasting a Friday night online; but I am old enough to be really really tired and ready for bed!)

I almost got a skirt just like that the other day, but in gray. I am so sad now that I decided to pu it back. =( This outfit look adorable! I love the black and camel together.
