Eat Drink & Be Mary: Brown & Black


Brown & Black

Can I just say how much I love that it is acceptable to wear brown & black together.  I'm no fashionista, but I'm pretty sure that brown boots with black clothes and vice versa are a thing these days, and I'm not hating it.  And if I'm wrong I don't wanna be right ;)  I love the break the brown boots give against black.  And we all know I'm sporting black leggings 90% of the time.

So when I saw that Trend Spin's theme this week was neturals I thought I'd give it a try...

Not too long again I mentioned I didn't own a single purse.  Well I recently found this baby hiding in my closet from my high school days.  And for now it's doing the job, but I have to admit I have still found myself wanting a tan purse.  

Cardigan | Aeropostale - Sold Out
Purse | from 2009 or earlier
Boots | Wet Seal
Leggings | Old Navy

So, what do you think...did I mix brown & black correctly?  Are you loving the fact that it's okay to wear brown and black together?  And in that case, am I right; is it acceptable to wear these two colors together these days?  Do you find yourself wearing leggings a little more than you should?

  4. I think these days it's seen as acceptable to wear just about any color together! And I bought a dress a while back that was black with an included brown belt to wear with it, so yep, I'd say this must be stylish! :) I think your outfit is cute!

  5. I love the look. Brown and black definitely go together. I am new to the leggings world...totally behind the times I know but I love them! Now I'm afraid the trend is going to go away and I won't want to give up my incredibly comfortable leggings.
