Tunic (worn like this)- Urban Outfitters; Necklace- Macy's; Lacy Leggings- Smart Set; Heels- Consigned; Bracelet & Belt- Thrifted
 Day two of my black ensembles and I love how the dark shade acts as a neutral canvas, drawing your attention to the accessories. Today was unusually warm, after the strong winds of Hurricane Sandy's aftermath blew through Ottawa early this morning.  My thoughts go out to all those who live in the areas affected by the storm and I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and dry.  

I feel like a bumblebee in today's outfit which is fitting because that's what I'll be dressed up to hand out candy to the trick or treaters tomorrow evening.

Would you pair yellow with black or would you feel too much like the buzzing, stinging insect?


  1. I love your black and yellow combo! I sometimes fear that I'll look too costumey in a color combo like yellow and black. I love theway you did it with just pops of yellow.

  2. Totally pinned a similarly coloured outfit just before I read this post! My plan is to wear it on Thursday... to keep the Halloween spirit going, maybe??

  3. I love the yellow with the black! Not too bee like at all! Very nice!!

  4. I used to be so scared of wearing black and yellow for fear of looking like a bumblebee. Now I know it was silly, because it really is a great combo!

    LOVE those yellow shoes! Heather

  5. I love how this look is still so colourful even though it's mostly black - very chic and fun!

  6. of course I like the combo of yellow and black even though it may seem a bit bumblebee'ish :P no worries when it's Halloween anyway, right? oh and definitely share your costume too! Halloween is not popular in Estonia but I'm interested in all the costumes!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
