Maybe it’s due to watching Fosse/Verdon, but lately I’ve been inspired by that “Dancer Off-Duty” look to wear my Little Black Pants. Here I styled with a tee, cardigan, and scarf. And then topped the whole thing off with some big sunglasses. (If you love dance and/or theater, and you haven’t been watching F/V, you’re missing out!)

As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, I have no intention of banishing black from my wardrobe completely. It often hits my Style Sweet Spot, and is a no-brainer option for a simple, polished casual outfit. The trick, I think, is to break up the black with lighter pieces, especially near my face. These little black pants are such workhorses, especially for travel.
The tee (gifted) is from Mott & Bow. It’s a slim cut, and I found the Medium a good size for me, fitted, but not tight. The fabric is very soft and light, and the v-neck isn’t cut too low. Ring was purchased in Paris; the woven leather tote bag is a Spring purchase.
Black loafers would have been the obvious choice, but they felt a little bit too literal and heavy. I swapped them out for my favorite mules, but I think what this outfit really needs is a pair of cognac sandals. I’ll be on the lookout. 👀
Are your outfits ever inspired by characters in movies or TV series?
