Daily: Black and Brown, Au Natural

Here’s the deep thought of the day: even nature knows black and brown go together. The proof? Leopards. Think about it. Leopard print has everything going for it - black, dark brown, and tan. Brilliant. Who says black and brown don’t go to gether? Here’s the breakdown:

Leopard Blouse: Gap
Blazer: Forever 21
Black Jeggings: Macy’s
Boots: Shi by Journey’s
Watch: Garage sale
Pin: American Eagle

I wanted the leopard print to be the standout piece, so I made sure the rest of my outfit was dark and neutral. I actually bought the blouse probably four years ago when I was in high school, but I never actually had the guts to wear it until college. The blouse itself is pretty billowy and big, so I usually pair it with a cute red belt. But that seems to be the cliche thing to do, so no red belt for me today.

Love the pin. I saw it at American Eagle last year, wanted it, decided not to buy it, and waited for it to go on sale. I promptly snatched it up after it was marked down. That’s how I do it (as do 98% of all other college students).
