Dress: Stitchfix // Sweater: Express // Boots: Madden Girl
Do you mix black and brown? What about black and navy? More often than not, I stand in my closet and look around to see what color combinations I can come up with. I like mixing neutrals in a way that looks fresh and new, but not like I got dressed in the dark (and I hate overhead lighting, so sometimes I do get dressed in the dark). I don't like it when things are matchy-matchy or when outfits are very specfic; this pattern can only go with that pattern, etc. I try to buy things that will go with everything so I have more options. Part of the reason why I still use Stitchfix. They send lots of neutral colors and patterns.
I don't remember what this outfit was supposed to look like. I'm guilty of picking something out the night before and wearing something completely different in the morning. I put this together at 6:45am, before I left the house at 7:00am and then I got to work late because the roads were bad from the 3 inches of snow we'd gotten over night. Usually I'm at work by 7:30, but not on this day.
Though you'd never know: it was almost 50 degrees in the afternoon when I took this picture.
