Outfit log: Brown and Black

Back in olden times I didn't believe in mixing brown and black. Then I realized that nature does this already (hello beloved leopard print), and would mix lighter browns with black feeling that the contrast between the two made the mix look intentional and awesome.

brown and black
  • brown shirt dress via nordstrom rack
  • thrifted express black sweater vest
  • gifted necklace (thanks, Mom!)
  • black/brown plaid tights via kohls
  • born "bitsy" black boots
  • lookmatic "dane" frames
Today, however, I threw caution to the wind and mixed dark brown and black. The dress is brown, the sweater vest is black (tangent: I need more sweater vests in my life), the tights are dark brown with a black plaid woven in, and the boots are black. I think it totally works! And hey, at least the pop of pretty coral at my neck distracts those who might disagree ;)
