Black Skinnies & Coffee

LOCATION: The Broadmoor Hotel, Colorado Springs, CO
DETAILS: Brigitte Raglan Top (Similar) || High Rise Skinny Cords (Old, Similar)|| Urban GemClover Necklace (use code: OAKANDOATSXOXO for a free month to Rocksbox) || ONA Capri Camera Bag || Grey Canvas Sneakers 

Each month Samantha of Elah Tree, Megs of Rivers & Roads, and me (Elizabeth of Oak + Oats!) join together to share three ways to style the same clothing item & your invited to be a part it! Our goal is to encourage, awaken, and celebrate the inherent beauty in each one of us as we live in community.

This April we are bringing it back to the classics – black skinny jeans! These are a huge staple in my wardrobe because they can be dressed up for work or down for play. I know I am not the only one who was able to get away with wearing jeans to the office because they were black and looked fancy! I know your April may look different all around the world, but paired with a tank or a over-sized sweater, black skinnies are year round!

Bruce and I snuck away last weekend for a coffee date and snapped these pictures. This outfit is perfect for weekend errands or a casual work day! The Stitch Fix top is a million times comfy and if you have never signed up for a Fix yet, you should do so now (and ask me all your questions in the comments!)


YOUR MISSION: For the month of April we are styling our black skinny jeans! Then YOU show us how YOU style your vest on your blog, facebook, instagram, or twitter! Make sure to use the hashtag #TryStyleCo so that we can see your wonderful creations. We will do fun shout outs on social media with our favorite looks!

!function(doc,s,id){ var e, p; if(!doc.getElementById(id)) { e = doc.createElement(s); e.id = id; p = ‘//shopsensewidget.shopstyle.com/widget-script.js’; var cb = new Date().getTime(); p += ‘?cb=’ + cb; e.src = p; doc.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.ss_shopsense === ‘object’){ if(doc.readyState === ‘complete’){ window.ss_shopsense.init(); } } }(document, ‘script’, ‘shopsensewidget-script’);

  • I LOVE my black skinnies! They were one of the best purchases I made clothing-wise. I love how easily they can be dressed up or down. And they are so flattering! Love how you styled yours.

  • Audrey Easter Fizer

    I'm officially adding black skinnies to my wish list!

  • I ALMOST bought some black skinnies this weekend! But didn't. Ha. I wear lots of brown… not a lot of black. I should change that.

  • I love that your outfit posts always look like outfits you actually wear all the time, not outfits that you planned for a post! This outfit is perfect 🙂

  • Black skinnies are at the top of my closet wish list, and I'm not sure why I haven't bought a pair yet! This outfit is so cute!

  • Love that outfit! Comfy and cute!

  • Beth! This whole black-skinny-jeans-philosophy about wearing them to work and being dressy, but still comfy is literally how I live my life! Haha, I got a good laugh that I am not alone.

  • I just recently bought a pair of black skinnies and can't imagine life without them. haha they are so versatile! And you can't go wrong with a good striped shirt. You look great!

  • You've inspired me, I'm going to get out my pair and try to get them worn again before it starts getting way too hot! 🙂 I love your necklace.

  • I love this outfit and how classic and effortless but still chic it is! It looks so great on you! I dont have black skinny jeans, but I wear my black pixie pants often that work in the same way as the skinny black jeans. I also just styled a similar look like this for the creative closet, so I'll have to # my picture!! 🙂

  • Beth, you are a beauty! These shots are stunning! I absolutely lovvvvve your outfit, and yes I've gotten away with wearing my dark black skinnies to work, which is a life saver. We really aren't supposed to wear jeans, but no one has said anything yet and the year is almost over. 🙂

    Also, I really love your necklace! So pretty. I've really enjoyed Rocksbox, too, and I still have the first box they sent me! I don't wanna send it back! Haha.
