black and brown. bff?




Scary Story: yesterday Jessica and I wore black and brown. together! the end.

I am sure that after hearing that some people are absolutely cringing at the mere thought of the pairing of those two colors. I'll admit that I used to be one of those people. But, if paired right it can actually be very fashionable and interesting. Don't get me wrong wearing solid black pants and a solid chocolate brown top together may not be the best styling decision in my opinion but it can be done.

I chose to wear black pants and a patterned top to incorporate my brown. This was the most nervewracking challenge for me and I think I could've done it better if I wouldn't have had to make it work appropriate. But I do. So a girl's gotta work with what shes got.

Normally I like a lot of black with a little touch of brown maybe in the shoes or with a sweater or leather jacket. Camel would ultimately be my brown of choice because it's not TO brown. Perfect. We had to get creative yesterday in our location for taking pictures because it was about 20 somethin' degrees here. So, freezing. Therefore, being the risk takers that we are we snuck into a hotel lobby and got the job done. They have a really pretty waterfall thing as you may see in the pictures.

Don't forget to go check out Jessica's take on the black and brown StyleBuster over at her blog AND to link up with us if you decide to do your own interpretation on it.
