Fashion Wednesday #6

I'm getting a little braver with colors--mostly just being able to mix my base colors to come up with experimental outfits. Until now, I've always had in my mind that you can use either navy, black or brown as a base for your outfit. This outfit uses black (or really dark) skinny jeans with a brown belt and shoes. I know, not all that crazy, but it's a learning curve for me, okay?
Just putting together outfits like this is definitely changing my shopping habits. When I bought these brown shoes, I was deliberating between the brown and a bright pink pair. I think if I were in that situation again, I would go for the bright pink just for fun. Next time, right?

  1. I think you look fabulous! I always see mamas who are fashion forward...think to myself, okay, next time I buy something for myself it will be a little experimental... and then, I end up with jeans & a black cardigan from Old Navy again. Old habits die hard.
    But you are rocking the purple. Great color!

  9. Oo, bright pink shoes! I would definitely approve. :) I love the way you're mixing your elements and neutrals here. That's definitely something I've been thinking of lately, too, and have been a little hesitant to experiment with. Thanks for the nudge! Love the bright top and the overall look!
