I Chill With The Crayola Crowd


Dress: Gap | Cardigan: J.Crew Factory | Bag: Dooney & Bourke | Necklace: Self made | Sandals : Moss Supply Co. via Target

My mom always says, "To Morgan, every color is a neutral." I have been known to be quite liberal with my color palette, but I like to think in the past few years I have made strides toward toning it down. This outfit works because I started with two basic pieces - the simple black dress and black sandals (these pieces give your eyes a "resting place" from all the color). The bag and cardigan are tied together by my necklace. What I love about this necklace is that it goes with a variety of colors! I combined parachute cord, hemp cord, and embroidery floss to make this statement piece. It adds a pop to any outfit. If you are interested in a DIY project, HonestlyWTF has a tutorial for a similar necklace. 
This knit dress is definitely a go-to piece for me. I featured it several months ago on the post "8 Versatile Pieces To Add To Your Wardrobe" and the sandals are also on that list! It is important to have a couple classic staples that, when you wake up in the morning, you can throw on and look good in.
