Black and Brown plus Sparkle!

Wandering around the farmer's market at Daley Plaza yesterday, I spotted Callie admiring a flower stand with a friend. Her combination of tan, black, and a few punches of color caught my eye, and definitely proves that you can wear black and brown together.

The key is to make sure the colors contrast. Her black textured pencil skirt (love the tiers of material) contrasts with her brown shoes that are a light tan, keeping the outfit springy and charming. A simple white shirt under her cardigan was a great choice to keep it simple and let the necklace do more of the work!

Did I mention the necklace? Turquoise, tortoise shell, and diamonds...who doesn't love that combination! It adds another hint of color while staying within the same tones and the rest of her outfit.

Callie's outfit head to toe: necklace from Anthropologie, cardigan  and skirt from Banana Republic, tote from Longchamp, gold and tortoise shell watch by Michael Kors, and flats by Tory Burch.
