Black Sweater and Simple Style

So three photos is more than enough for such a simple outfit but I just couldn't leave this one out:

It's my "just got caught" face.

We took the kids on a 12-mile hike this weekend and we're still recovering. Actually, I should say Andrew and I are still recovering. The girls were fine the second they got food. Ah, youth. I'm so sore that comfort and simplicity were the only style requirements today. I used to shy away from black since I wore it exclusively from ages 12-17 (no other color suits a sad, angsty teen better) but as I get older I've found that it can lend a little sophistication to an otherwise boring outfit. It can also serve as a nice blank slate for my crazier pieces (*cough*giantfurhat*cough). No more depressed teenager, just good wardrobe choices.
