I have a confession to make. I used to really, really, dislike when I saw outfits that combined the colors black and brown. After being glued to the TV watching episodes of House of Style and Fashion TV back in the day and all I knew was that it was a big no no, and that stuck with me for quite sometime. Since then I have come into my own when it comes to my personal style and more and more this color combo has grown on me. I saw the below image today and its the perfect execution of these 2 colors. The white stripe lightens up the black and the burnt caramel fringe bag adds some interest to the outfit, so lovely. I hope you all had a great week and for those of you that have one, enjoy an even better long weekend.
