Take Me to Wonderland

Over the last few weeks, I have really been discovering the color brown. I have always loved the way others wear it, but black has always been my personal basis...so brown didn't seem to fit in the picture for me. But lately, it has been the perfect base for my outfits. As a neutral,  it goes well with a lot of colors and pieces. As the focal point, it is easy to put together a great "brown-based" ensemble. I'm not so sure what was holding me back before. While black will forever have my heart, I am happy to make some room for the newly beloved brown.

What are your thoughts, black or brown - or both? ;)

I was wearing:
Leopard print Express round scarf | White Mossimo tank top | Brown Express pants | 
Brown faux shearling lace-up booties | Brown Diesel leather belt | Cognac Franco Sarto purse

Thanks for reading!

  43. I think brown is actually a lot easier to style, its softer and there is a wide tonal range to work with. But black and brown together is one of my favorite pairings as well!
