Wearing Chocolate

Last week in DC it was 70 degrees.  People were acting like it was Black Friday to get a table outside for dinner.  Now, we have 2 inches of snow.  Come on Mama Nature.  Just pick one.  I'm fine with either but let's make some decisions here!

On to some fashion.  Today I want to look at a great neutral that is so often overlooked because it's not as easy to wear as black.  That color is brown!  Brown is a great hue for almost everyone because it compliments your skin tone and it matches every color.  Seriously!

Look at this sheath! It's got a kimono-like quality with that wide waistband.  And the blue and brown pattern is so rich.
This old time classic shoe is perfect with a cord skirt or skinny jeans.  They're just so romantic!

Macy's, Rachel Roy skirt, $99
One word came to mind when I saw this leather pleated skirt: sassy.  This is a perfect addition to your spring wardrobe.

Forever 21, Oval Facet Bracelet, $11
This would be great with jeans.  It's got some weight to it which is nice as well.

Wearing brown, especially rich dark shades are so luxurious.  The color has a velvety quality to it that makes you feel 100 times sassier.  Try it!

Be fabulous today!

  4. Chocolate IS a color I don't wear much...Probably because my hair is so close to it. I should give it another shot!
