Black and Brown

Growing up, I knew never to mix black and brown.  I'm not sure where I got that advice.  My mom?  Girl Scouts?  Church ladies?  I have no idea.  Either way, I guess I saw it as the cardinal sin of getting dressed in the morning.  It has taken a long time to get out of that mindset - and I'll admit that it is still hard for me to do.  I managed to do it today because 1) I have a top with both black and brown and 2) I had a strong desire to wear comfortable shoes this morning.  These are perhaps the most comfortable shoes in my closet.

  1. I like the black and brown look. I'm with you- I didn't believe it was even close to acceptable until very recently. Now I see it in a completely different light.
