So I am trying to steer away from black, because it's just become an NYC Ninja (Pamela!) problem. When I avoid black, I just end up in a sea of navy, and you will never hear me complaining about that. Blues are a winter wardrobe staple. Also, if you can, get some Tieks, because they are so amazing (thanks for the rec Amanda!) The vest is not available in navy right now, but there are other colors and they always restock the blue. It gets me through the in-between weather days, and on days when I feel really bad ass and just don't want to wear my 200 pound puffer coat.
