Brown & black

I used to be so, so against brown & black together. “They clash, they’re too similar, it just doesn’t work,” I used to say. Then I was inspired by a Calvin Klein bag I spotted in Hudson’s Bay recently – I liked it so much that I immediately Instagrammed it – so I decided to explore brown & black a bit more. Safe to say, I’m a fan now… it’s a pairing that definitely works.


A bit of black, a bit of sparkle

I wanted to wear something a bit different for my birthday party… and a studded faux-leather skirt fit the bill. It’s not my typical “look” but I think wearing it with a simple tee and some J. Crew bling toned down the edgy nature of the skirt. I had a few Marilyn Monroe moments in the wind that night, but it was worth it!

PS: Doesn’t my hair look red in these pics? I haven’t dyed it lately… weird!
