Black + Brown OOTD

I used to think that pairing black + brown was a "no no". Really, what I have learned, is that with fashion, there are no "no no's". Really, you can do whatever you want. And if someone doesn't like what you are wearing, well, it's not really your problem! I think that's actually one of the best things about creating your style. In life there are all sorts of rules, but with your personal style, the options are really endless. Well, I thought I would highlight how I recently paired black and brown for a cute Sunday brunch look!

The button down is black with brown equestrian accents so it can go either way which is actually why I purchased the shirt. It was a very mild day so I didn't even need a full jacket. I just threw on the liner from my Barbour jacket. This is the kids liner... It is plenty big enough and it was a lot less $$$. 

The K. Slademade clutch helped to tie in the belt and shoes and the navy accents went with the denim. I like this look because it's not too matchy-matchy, but I think it flows well. For my hair... well, it wasn't cooperating so I just twisted it up into a top knot (not to be confused with the infamous sock bun).

Do you pair black and brown? Have a fabulous day!

Gorgeous clutch! It looks like it can go with anything and you can dress it up or down.

I dig it!
I love the arm decor and that you used your liner as a vest!
Clever! :)
And yes, I love black & brown or black and camel.
Have a great week!

Had to do a double take. My daughter wears almost the exact same outfit. Her vest has leather on the shoulders though (Ralph Lauren) and she always wears boots with hers. I love your shoes!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot
of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see
if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
with someone!
