Mixing Black and Brown

If you've been following along, you probably know that I'm a big fan of colors and patterns. But you can never go wrong with solids and neutrals, especially on a crisp, fall day. We've all heard the rumor, you can't wear black and brown together. I don't think that's necessarily true, mixing brown and black can create a chic and styled look if it's done simply. I didn't add too many accessories and threw in pops of red between my purse and lipstick for my love of color. 

The weekend flew by, I worked the entire weekend and got a little bit of Christmas shopping done but overall it was a very low-key few days. I'm still having a hard time believing that Thanksgiving is in two days! The holidays are here!

    I would have no problem pairing black and brown as well (in the right way lol) ;)
