When: Tuesday September 21, 2010

Black & Blue top: ? (Panama)
Yellow skirt: El Titan (Panama)
Black belt: Christmas present from my parents
Black pumps: ? (Panama)
Black Liz Claiborne purse: TJ Max
Pearl necklaces: Pasarela (Panama)

Where: Went to work and watched the series premier of Glee!

Today was both Professional Tuesday and Black is Chic Challenge, how about that for a challenge?! jajaja. In other words, I had to wear a professional work appropriate outfit that included at least one black statement piece. Today's piece is not entirely black, but we can all agree that this top is less colorful than what I usually wear... that counts right?.. jeje

I felt really bold today (must be I'm missing my colors), so I paired this top with a bright yellow skirt! I also decided to add the pearl necklaces to make it a little more glam. I finished off with simple black accessories that don't compete with the rest of the outfit.

Are there days that you just feel bold and make crazy outfits?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this top:
