Classic Energy /// Outfit Post

For awhile now I've been itching for an all black ensemble. To me, black is very classic, and chic, and I honestly feel beautiful in it.

The other day I received the most lovely package from We Love Colors and inside, among a few other items, was an amazing pair of sage solid color tights. After seeing them I knew that they would be the perfect accessory to my soon-to-be all black moment.

Cardigan: Gift from my mom
Dress: Target
Boots: BP by Nordstroms

Down the street from my school is an amazing art gallery called the Monorchid, and Scott suggested that day that it would be the perfect place to take the days outfit photos (as my ensemble matched the outside decor of the building so well).

A bird for Chelseabird! The birds on the front side of the building are one of my absolute favorite art pieces in Phoenix.

On the side of the Monorchid is a giant M (one that I'm pretty sure the band The Maine, a local and very popular band, took their logo from), and I just couldn't help but take a few photos with it.

I feel like I really can't say enough about the amazing tights I was wearing. We Love Colors sells durable tights, among other great accessories, in 51 various colors. These tights are very thick, and I just know that they will help me get through the chilly AZ winter with ease.

Have you every checked out We Love Color's tights? What do you think about them?


  1. Cute photoshoot, I love the one where you are really little in front of the giant M. Love your outfit too, especially the dress and boots.

  2. thanks for the link! I'm going to check out those tights!
    I found it funny how you said "chilly AZ winter" because I know a lot of people from the area I'm from have winter homes there to escape our brutal Manitoban winters. ;)

  3. Rosie- Thank you so much! I really love that photo as well :]

    Holly Sarah- I am SOO excited that you bought two pairs! I know you will love them! Also, that is too funny! It really does get pretty chilly here! I'm used to weather in the 90's and 100's, so when it gets down to the 40's and 30's, I'm freezing! :]

    Megan- Thank you! :]

  4. your outfit is so beautiful!
    the tights really make the look pop. :)

  5. I love that outfit! The tights are a perfect touch of color :) That building looks so neat! I loooove silhouettes of birds, so I am in love with that mural! I hope you're having a great weekend and I'm definitely going to go check out We Love Color!

  6. Great pictures!

    That bird stencil is so cool. Looks perfect with the outfit! :)

  7. Cute outfit, and I LOVE that part of downtown. :)

  8. I always end up missing my old place in downtown phx when I read your posts. :) I missed it especially when I found out there's a Pita Jungle and a new coffee shop 20 steps down the street from it.

  9. You look great! Love your classy outfit :) And that background is so cool!!

  10. Such a great background for photos. I live in Gilbert and really want to go find that spot now. Just found your blog and love it! Awesome tights!

  11. I love your boots!
    & The Maine were the ones that actually put the logo on the wall! (:

  12. This ensemble is so adorable on you! I think black is your color...for real. I love the pictures and the location.

  13. Gosh that art is lovely! I thought I liked the birds, but when I scrolled down I liked the M even better! You look beautiful in these photos and the tights are gorgeous. What a good idea to pair them with black, I would never think of that!

  14. I agree, black is so chic and this outfit looks great on you! I love that your tights give the look a pop of color :) Adorable.
