Happy Monday gals!

I’m not a big fan of “fashion rules” for colors. You know the whole:

  1. Don’t wear white after Labor Day
  2. Don’t wear black and navy
  3. Don’t wear black and brown

With the exception of the whole black and navy combo [you don’t want your navy being so dark it appears black,] I break these rules at least once a week. I mean, how can these you be expected take out the most neutral color of all out of your wardrobe after a holiday? Nope. Not happening. Anyways, since most of the population is super rebellious and doesn’t follow these rules one of my favorite combinations of all time has to be black & brown.My little trick for pairing these two is, that since black cannot get any blacker you have to carefully choose your brown! Choosing a shade that’s too dark won’t end up complimenting you and could end up clashing with the black [i.e. making it look like you’re wearing all black.] Stick to cognac shades and lighter browns instead! I paired this sheer light brown number with some black distressed skinnies, black wedges and added some of my favorite gold jewels to dress things up!

Speaking of jewels, this Alexandra Gioia arrowhead beauty has quickly become a favorite in my necklace layering. You can use code BLONDEEXPEDITIONS at checkout for 20% off your entire order!

Sorry for the radio silence last week over here and on IG! I caught what could only be compared to the plague earlier last week, and I’ve just started to feel well enough to reemerge from my hibernation-like state. [Me, currently]. Is it just me or do the colds you catch in warm weather/summer the worst?

Thanks so much for stopping by! XO!
