The Blackout Look

Hey dolls,

It’s been about a week since Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast and everything is still a mess. Fallen trees still lay in the middle of streets, traffic lights still don’t work, and no one in New York state has been in school since last Friday.¬†Two thirds of my town still doesn’t have power, and many of them aren’t supposed to have their power restored until Friday. It’s horrible.

If you are one of the unlucky people stuck without lights or heat, here are some easy outfit ideas that are easy to put together and will keep you warm!

The laid back, casual look is quite popular right now. Just throw on a basic pair of leggings or some black jeans on the bottom. Then, on the top, wear a thick boxy sweater or a plain tee and an oversized cardi and you’re all set! To jazz it up you could add cute accessories like a cool bracelet or maybe a funky bag. And if you’re still feeling a chill, a circle scarf would look great with this outfit ( ;

You’re guaranteed a fashionable but practical outfit that you can put together in the dark if you are without power still. To be honest, I love this style. I was lucky enough not to lose electricity but I still wear this look.


Stay warm!
