making the case for black + brown

2 Permalink 2


one of the first fashion “rules” i learned was to never mix black and brown. however, much like not wearing white after labor day, i feel like this rule needs a little updating because if you ask me, black and brown are perfect compliments to one another.

for a casual movie date and dinner with S and my parents, i opted for a minimalist look showcasing my favorite neutral shades. to off-set the classic black, i added my quilted kimono jacket in a rich rust color. i love the warmth it provided to an otherwise demure outfit. the camel-colored belt further anchored the color scheme and my black tassel earrings with gold hardware finished off the look.

    Nice post. But, THAT jacket. Insert sad face here… they must have sold out quickly. That fabulous jacket is no longer in stock in my size.
    Your complete look is so relaxed. It’s good to be comfortable when having fun with friends and family. Hope your day was memorable. Thanks for sharing.

      Oh shoot, I’m sorry! Perhaps they’ll restock it? It really is a great jacket, the perfect light-weight. We had a great time at the movies and dinner. Always love doing a double date with my parents 🙂 xoxo
