this is just lazy...


I feel like sometimes when I pair things with black tights and black boots that it is just a cop out from actually planning an outfit. Even more so when it's paired with a black skirt. I didn't really care on Monday though. It was cold and I really just wanted to be comfortable, warm, and in a skirt.

I love this black corduroy mini from Gap, but it's not the all-purpose black mini I have been searching for. I think it flares out just a bit too much. I have been looking to replace my LBS (little black skirt) for about 4 years, after the one I got from Express when I was in 10th grade (yes - it was ten years old when I finally got rid of it) finally gave up. The fabric lost its stretch and the zipper broke, seemingly all at the same time. I have made due over the last year by the LBD from my remix as a skirt, but I think it's really time to step up the search for the perfect LBS.

I can think of so many wonderful ways to style a LBS, though I am sure I will fall prey to pairing it with tons of tops and my denim jacket. Can you say "spring uniform"? What's on your spring "to buy" list? Are you doing some spring cleaning/closet reorganizing first? I certainly need to!
