Omigoodness it is COLD today! Saturday we were running around sans coats and today it's in the 20s. Crazy DC weather! I was actually in the mood to wear some color, but the weather made me seek out warm layers and that ended up being more black. I love this skirt because it's a sweater so it's warm, but it's a tad big and rides up. I didn't realize until after these pictures how much it had ridden up, swear that here in the office it's down near my knees. And don't worry folks, my heavy Lands' End parka, hat, scarf, and gloves were waiting for me in my warm car to my left.

I never had a chance to mention it, but Monday I had the opportunity to attend the Inauguration. My sister was able to get tickets for the Orange section (standing but on the Capitol grounds). While it was an exhausting day, it was awesome to be there for the swearing in, surrounded by fellow happy supporters. I have plenty of pictures on my Instagram, and while that very day I said I wouldn't deal with the craziness again, as my friend Insana wrote on Facebook, if a woman ended up president, I would be back!  Just next time I would bring foot warmers to slip in my boots.  I was toasty warm everywhere except my sad little toes.

  1. I heart this look so much! I am definitely adding this one to my “Recreate This” file. I love that you didn’t go overboard on the gold and that you kept the rest of the outfit toned down with only a peek of polka dots. I love it.

  2. I cannot WAIT to get back to regular clothing and ditch the belly bands and jeans with elastic waists. Is is wrong that I dream of what I’m going to wear once my daughter is born?? I love this look , even though I personally have no worn black in a year – may have to bring that back. And you couldn’t have paid me to attend the inauguration :))

  3. So lucky to have been present at the inauguration! I watched all day and loved every minute. My 4 year old granddaughter, who is enamored of the Obama girls, got dressed up in a party dress and tiara to “attend” the ball at home. She was so disappointed that she fell asleep before the ball started.

    You look terrific and I absolutely love the chunky gold necklace.

  4. You look fab as normal! 🙂
    That’s great that you went to the Inauguration! I was whining to my DH that we should took a 3 day vacay for the event. But you better believe if Hilary becomes prez, that I will be there in a heartbeat!

  5. Congrats on being at the Inauguration! I watched at our favorite pub with fellow supporters and we all kept saying “what would it be like to be there??” Love this black and gold look.

  6. Dang, this whole look is chic but those shoes are downright KILLER. The stuff I wear on “I just want warm layers” days is, shall we say, less sophisticated. 😉

    And it’s so fantastic that you attended the inauguration! I’d bet you’ll be recalling the fact that you were there at that moment for years and years. ♥
