Three things: The Color Black, Ponte Pants, and Ballet Flats. How’s that for Thursday? #blackisthenewblack #amiright 🙂 Enough said!
As far as these pants are concerned they are a dream. Thick, comfortable, can be worn as a jean or a legging. If you haven’t tried any ponte fabric in the pants department, see a few of my other picks below!
That leaves the flats. The only time I ever graced the ballerina scene was as a pudgy two-year-old. Now as an on-the-go mom, ballet flats are my go-to shoe for wearability, walkability, and comfortability.
What are you up to this fine Thursday? I’m subbing a spin class this morning, peeping and teaching my own cycling class tonight, and looking forward to Friday and the weekend!

You always like to come back to Audrey Hepburn. Or maybe it’s my obsession with her that sees her in everything. If I remember correctly it is was in Wait Until Dark where she wore gorgeous tight black pants like those. She always looked absolutely incredible in black.
And also tight fitting black tights is classic Mary Tyler Moore from the Dick Van Dyke show era.
I love that you mix modern sensibilities with the classic and these timeless looks of these truly beautiful, graceful, and fashionable women of the past.
Lol, whenever I comment on your blog I end up sounding like I am gay :). Quite the opposite I like these classical beauties and their fashion because they were incredibly beautiful and found the line between sexy and graceful. Too many women today can only figure out the sexy part, but your looks always manage to capture grace as well.
Now, if you can pull of a Golden Girl’s inspired look I will be well and truly impressed :).
BTW, You’re awesome and I love your blog.
