Shades of Brown and Tan

September 29, 2010

Do you ever pile on various shades of one color trying to create an outfit until... works? Well that is what happened when I put together this outfit for work after trying on like 7 different shades of brown and tan.

I have been waiting to wear this long sweater until the weather got a little cooler and used the necklace to tie it all together. My sister-in-law made each one of her bridesmaids one of these necklaces to wear with our dresses on her and my brother's wedding day and I can honestly say I have gotten tons of use out of it. I also whipped out my vintage purse, one of my many eBay purchases, because it went with the color scheme!

  5. OMG, I die! Seriously, I love this outfit so much Ashley. Shades of camel, brown, and tan are so gorgeous. I need to somehow replicate this! Is the skirt fairly new? I wouldn't mind going to New York and Co to try it on if it's still in stores =)

  6. Love how you made this work. It looks so rich and interesting and minimalist.

  7. i love love love this neutral look! the layering of the textures is fabulous!
