I hate that one side of my cardigan flapped over, but whatever. It was freezing cold that weekend, and I just wanted Andrew to quickly snap my picture after church so we could run inside and get warm.
Did anyone tell you should never wear black and brown together? I always followed that rule -- until suddenly, a couple years ago, it seemed everyone was mixing black and brown. And for a long time, I watched people wear black pants and brown boots and tried to figure out how they made it look so fabulous.
Want to know the secret I finally realized? It's all about contrast. You still shouldn't wear black and chocolate brown together as a rule, because they're too close in shades. But pair a black dress or black skinny boots with a light brown belt or boots and you instantly look cooler.
Any fashion rules you've finally allowed yourself to break? I'm still hesitant to mix patterns, but I know people who can rock that look, too. Maybe soon I'll be brave enough to try that.
