I wear blue and black together All The Time, but I frequently forget about the other classic combo: blue and brown. A big part of the reason is the fact that I don’t have a lot of brown in my closet. Strictly speaking, brown is not part of my wardrobe palette … but I had to make an exception for this skirt. I mean, you can’t blame me, right? It’s so lovely. I love the little details — including the ones you can’t see, like the teal lining hemmed with lace. Old skool Anthropologie is the best Anthropologie.
I was initially going to wear this with my blue Vince sweater, but it proved to be too loose and long in the back, so I subbed in an old J. Crew Factory one instead. Rather than a necklace, I decided to try something a little less expected and pinned a brooch. (I thought about pinning one to the skirt ruffle, but figured it might be a twee step too far.) Same deal when it came to the shoes: I went with the less obvious choice, leopard print. They say leopard is a neutral, after all. But, in this case, I think it works.
