Black With a Smashing Blue

“I own too much black – said no one ever.” Unknown

FO1A4661-2Here is a super comfortable business casual outfit.  Black Vince Slim Fit Cropped Pants are the perfect length for the height challenged.  The seams down the front of the leg are very flattering and the short slit in the back makes them comfortable for sitting without pulling at the knees.  I don’t normally like side zip pants, but these are stretchy enough to make zipping them simple.  The top is a Theory cashmere sweater with short sleeves.  The jacket is another fabulous J. Crew wool blazer with functional buttons on the cuffs and interior pockets (available in four colors for summer in linen ).  Of course, the shoes are the incredibly comfortable Clark’s Kendra Sienna leather pumps in black. There are probably times when I wear too much black, but I really liked how the black set off the vivid blue of the blazer.  A white blouse would look nice as well, but . . . you can never own too much black!
