Back to nature

I’ll admit it…many moons ago, I was one of those girls who thought you should never wear brown and black together!!

So silly, right?!  I mean, we see it in the world around us all the time – brown and black horses, brown and black dogs; even insects and rocks are often variations of those two colours.  Mother Nature knows what she’s doing!!

But I do think it’s a colour palette that we usually associate with autumn…especially when you add some green (like I did) or gold or orange to the mix.  What I wasn’t expecting, however, were the very mild temperatures that we were fortunate enough to enjoy today; my tights, army jacket and brand-new tasselled scarf had me feeling a little over-dressed in the layers department!!

There you go…serves me right for believing the weather forecast!!  πŸ˜‰

    This fall weather is definitely all over the place but at least you look fabulous! I have to admit I rarely rare brown and black but seeing it on you makes me want to wear more of it! The green vest is a nice touch!

      You may not do a lot of brown and black together, dear Rebecca, but you DO wear many beautiful colour combinations that are way more adventurous than I tend to be!! I'm happiest in my neutrals…but I'm always ready for some inspiration, too!! πŸ™‚

      It does kind of look like I'm wearing a vest, dear Maggie…but the (contrasting) sleeves are actually part of the jacket!! The dress itself is sleeveless; perfect for summer, and for layering now that autumn has arrived!! πŸ™‚

    I always wear brown and black together haha πŸ™‚ Also, brown and and blue is one of my favorite combinations, even though in Italy it seems to be a big no-no (I have no idea why)…Love the layering in this outfit, so perfect for fall and that bag is gorgeous!
