What I Wore (black & brown)


I've only recently gotten on board with pairing black and brown.  It was a color combo I loved on others but hesitated to try on my own.

Cue Pinterest.  Inspiration galore.......


So I decided it was high time I tried my own version.....


Black skinnies, brown boots, a little lace, and one of my fave necklaces.

Pretty simple.  Nothing fancy.  Great to wear to work.

And all from my closet!  No purchase necessary!

Mission accomplished?

Or try again soon?

  7. Cute outfit! I have grown to like black and brown together. I'm still convinced that navy and black are mortal enemies though.

  15. I've been working up the courage to do black and brown too! I think you did great! Mine will be similar to the picture from pinterest on the right. But either mustard or brown tights instead. :)

  16. You look great. I've been wearing black and brown for so long. I just am too lazy to follow the "rules" of fashion. ha. But now it's in and I can get away with it.

  17. I'm still unsure of why I love wearing black and brown, but I totally think I was inspired by one of Chanel's 2010 boot collections where there were tons of riding boots that were black leather at the bottom half and brown leather at the top. It was super chic, versatile, simple, and timeless! Thanks for this inspiration, as some people fear wearing brown with black. I love monotone colors and playing with textures and layers!

  20. Love this whole look, and the black & brown work fine together here! Sometimes they don't, which is why I tend to avoid it in general, but in the right proportions and shades it's fine (like here!). Beautiful top, too. :)
