What I Wore

For Thanksgiving

Sweater - Old Navy/Black Jeans - Kohl's
Shoes - KMart/Necklace - Premier Designs


Over the course of time, ideas of what colors look good together changes.  When I was a teenager, we moved into a house where my bedroom was pink, but the carpet was red.  I remember we were amazed that someone had put pink walls with that color of carpet.  But, now I would not only decorate using those two colors together, I would also wear the colors together.  Another color combination that I used to think was not a good idea was putting black with brown.  Well, this year for Thanksgiving those two colors were what I chose to wear while preparing and eating our dinner.  Do you have any color combinations that you used to avoid that you now wear?

  5. I think I often wore color combos that others did not. One of my favorites was butter yellow and burgundy. People were always astounded when I wore it and even more surprised that they liked it.
    Love your outfit. It looks very chic with the leopard shoes.

  6. I love pink and red--it sort of breaks the rules yet pink is just a tinted red!
    I love orange and purple!

  7. I'm with you in reveling in brown and black. Always thought it was a good idea, as it's seen so much in nature. You look so confident in this sweet and casual outfit. You'll wear it often!

    1. I love that you brought up the fact that brown and black are seen in nature - no wonder it does work together well in what we wear!
