Election Day 2012

I knew I wanted to wear black and white today - the presidential election seems a black and white issue no matter who you are voting for. This was my first try:
The tights are black in the front, white in the back!
Love the color, not so much the silhouette. This top is great under a jacket, but that gathered neckline gives too much emphasis to the top of the hourglass. I thought about my denim shirt, but I tend to go to that well pretty often.

This was my second and mostly final choice:
The fit and the length of this top is much better with the skirt. I eventually switched out the necklace for a black and white chiffon scarf, to keep my neck a little warmer. I'm rarely cold these days in the office, and I wore my heavy denim jacket over it all with a red pashmina to walk to work. 

Then I went and voted. This election is going to be a nailbiter.

And since I felt anxious about watching the returns, this is what I made for dinner:

  1. Those tights are awesomesauce.

    I wore a blue faux wrap dress with a white sparkly tank and a red ruffly cardi. Nearly wore red tights, but thought that might be too costume-y.
