Black and Navy, Together. WHAT???

So, It’s January… In Michigan…


It’s cold. It’s snowy. It’s cold. Did I mention that it’s cold? January is my least favorite month. I like all the fresh clean start stuff, but that’s about it. Layering is essential in these frigid months. Otherwise, you might catch your death of pneumonia, as my mother used to say. She was from Alabama, so imagine her saying it with a deep southern accent.

I love the look of a collared shirt underneath a sweater. I decided to layer a tunic length top under a tunic length sweater for warmth and maximum bum camouflage. I’ve also thrown all caution to the wind and paired navy with black. And you know what? The fashion police did not pull me over and the world did not end. OH. MY. HECK.

I think the blanket scarf sort of pulls the whole look together. There is navy and black in the scarf, so if my scarf can combine black and navy, so can I. Mad props to target for creating the scarf.
