Black & Gold

 My inspiration for this post came from a conversation I had yesterday with Elizabeth, one of my BF's since 7th grade.  She is pregnant with her second little boy and we were discussing maternity fashions.  I sent her the picture below of Jessica Simpson in a black maternity outfit, saying that I love it.  She replied with something like, "Of course because it's all black!" My reply, "Exactly."  I have always loved black and it's my go to "color." My current obsession is black and gold. 
What immediately comes to my mind when I think of black and gold?  Chanel of course.  Rachel Zoe also comes to mind.  Tonight is Fashion Wednesday on Bravo and I love to escape into the world of Rachel Zoe and Dukes of Melrose.

My interpretation of Black & Gold:
I wore this outfit out to dinner with my hubby.  The coat is Anthropologie Clarissa Coat and I got it for a steal.

Black & Gold for Spring: I'll take one of everything :)

Last But Not Least

How fun is this.  It's perfect for a reusable grocery bag.  I can now put into words my love for black and gold as I grocery shop :))
These are my favorites!
