Brown and Black

December 20, 2012

One of the favorite things I rediscovered while in New York last weekend is how brown boots go with everything. As you know from last year’s post, I totally believe black and brown can look awesome together yet I don’t always think about my brown riding boots as universally as they should. I picked up this army green and black Zara dress over the weekend (you must click to see the details better; the faux leather detailing along the necklace totally sold me) and while I probably would have styled it differently had I been home, I paired it with brown boots — i.e. the only available option in the hotel room — and adore the result. The color contrast is better in person but, hey, this is an iPhone photo, so apologies, but it is what it is. Forgive me? 

dress: zara || black tights: c/0 hanes || boots: anne klein (old; similar) || puffy coat: kenneth cole via today show deals & steals (similar, obsessed with faux fur hood!) || bag: rebecca minkoff mini mac (wore all weekend, day and night) || hat: target (obsessed with the pom!) || necklace: c/o in pink (sold out; similar)

    I think brown and black are just fine together, Cheetahs and Tigers wear it all the time. Your dress is super cute, I can’t wait to see what you wear it with when you get back home!

    Cute! That dress is so cute and pairing it with boots is SO right up my alley! I’m a big fan of black and brown as well :)

    You look so cute! I am a recent convert to the brown and black color scheme, I do like it. Your boots are great.
