I love icy blues and minty greens, and I especially love them paired with contrasting colors like metallic gold, soft brown, or deepest black.
This lovely selection of tights arrived in the mail from We Love Colors today, and I wasted no time in taking the ice blue pair out for a spin. They are particularly appropriate I think considering the ice storm we had last night. The whole world looks like a set from the Snowflake Waltz right now.
I think (I hope) this outfit proves my thoughts about wearing black and brown together. People always say you shouldn't do it, but I think it looks great as long as it looks intentional. That is, don't wear a completely black outfit with a brown belt, but mix them boldly with no fear. What's your opinion on the rule and how (if) it should be broken?
