It has been ages since I’ve posted an outfit here. Truth is, outfit posts are some of my favorite. Coincidentally, this one has two of my favorite things, too: mixing black and brown and a skirt with sneakers.
Let’s talk about black and brown first. It used to be that wearing both in one outfit was faux pas. I know ten year old Megan wouldn’t have dared to mix the two (even with her long list of other fashion crimes – or, you know, she was just crazy avant-garde) But now? I love it! Admittedly, the brown skirt with a black band makes it a no brainer, but I really like the look. We all have to break the rules every once in a while right? Don’t even get me started on black and navy. Swoon.
And then there are the Keds. I’m really having a moment with Keds. They look great with jeans and athletic wear, they look great with feminine dresses, and in my opinion, they look great with a-line skirts and silk tees. Keds, and tennis shoes in general, give what would be girly outfits a fun tomboy feel. That’s not even to mention that it is so much easier to jump and dance around while wearing sneaks. I find myself wearing them all the time (which really says a lot since we’re in prime pedicure-display season).
What are your thoughts on black/brown and sneakers with skirts?
