A year ago I would have never combined brown and blue together.
When wearing brown (or gray) pants or skirt I always took the safe route and opted for a white or an off white shirt on top. But how boring is that?!
On the left I have replaced the white shirt with this bright blue silk top.
I love this silk shirt- it can be worn un-tucked over skinny pants as a tunic, or tucked into a skirt as shown here.
As for my shoes, instead of the matronly heels on the right, I decided to go for my brown boots. I also added a belt (following my rule of 3).
To finish it off, I added this cool beaded necklace to tie the blue and brown together.
