black + brown





I distinctly remember in high school how I thought wearing brown and black together was just awful. Now I sort of love it. Not more than brown and grey, but still. When I found this black rayon romper I was sure it was for the shop until I put it on and realized what a great piece it is for adding all kinds of accessories, thereby making vastly different outfits. I was a might lazy with this getup, I admit it.

I love it! My husband is still pretty if-y, okay actually hard-core, about mixing black & brown. However, when I do it he tells me I look nice, or maybe he's being nice?

I know exactly what you mean about mixing black & brown. I'm just finishing a black & brown kumihimo bracelet and love the way it's turning out. I may have to make another to keep for myself!

Black and brown are one of my favourite colour combinations. Maybe for the exact reason, like you say... because I've always thought it was wrong!
