If you’ve been following me for a while, you may have noticed that I have a slight obsession with all things camel, tan and cognac. When I look at my shoe shelf, it’s 90% tan and 10% black and olive – clearly, I’ve got a thing for earth tones and neutrals. I feel like browns are such approachable hues and soften a wardrobe (I love black but sometimes feel like it comes across as too harsh and not feel quite as “me”), while also making it easier to mix and match for years to come.
Recently I’ve been stepping outside my comfort zone when it comes to styling and I love it. Wearing a summer handbag with a corduroy skirt (…a very wintery texture) and cozy sweater may not have been something I’d thought to do last year (…or perhaps that I thought was style faux pas?)…but last week I tried it on in the mirror, liked it and said, done! I’m working on dressing for me and wearing what I feel good in, regardless of what others may think or what’s seasonally acceptable in the fashion world…and I gotta say, it feels good!
My skirt is from Urban Outfitters and it is GORGEOUS! It’s that perfectly rich camel color that looks so good with anything from sweaters now to a dainty tank top in the spring. You could also dress it up by wearing a leather moto jacket, too… love that look! This sweater is also from UO and I’ve worn it so many different ways…such a beautiful and versatile sweater (…you can see how else I styled it here, here and here).
My shoes are old Forever21 so I’m linking to a similar pair by Topshop below. Love the higher rise and the gorgeous suede texture. Lastly, my handbag is from Etsy and it’s a favorite of mine…SO darling and feminine. I feel like my grandmother would have loved this bag so much (which is always reason to wear it in my book!).
Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! XO.
