Fashion Challenge: Brown

 Tee - Route 66, thrifted
Cardigan - Rugged Warehouse
Trousers -Vigoss jeans, thrifted
Boots - Frye, ebay
Harness - Audra Jean

This was half of what I planned today. I swapped out my originally planned skirt for pants because Brr! All that rain left it chilly. After sleeping 14+ total hours yesterday, I feel much better. Still a bit sneezy, but not as bad. I believe my "cold" was really allergies from the doggie visitor we have for the week.

Now how could I do a brown outfit and not include my harness?! (The answer - I can't). My preference for browns tends to be toward those 'bitter' shades that are less saturated or super saturated bronze/cognac colors. I added in another favorite neutral - military grey-green. I never had this color in my closet until fairly recently, and managed to pick up three pieces of it in a short time! It's super versatile.

This outfit was worn out to mail Christmas cards/presents! A bit late, but with finals and last minute homework assignments I'm a bit behind this year. Have you sent out your holiday cards yet?


Participants of Neutrals Week! Please remember to send Keely [kkmkreations[at]live[dot]com] your favorite outfit from your week to be included in the round up. Thanks!

  2. I like that harness - I almost wore a belt around my sweater today for a similar look, then decided I felt a little too restricted! I like military green too - we should do a challenge with that sometime!

  3. Yah for the harness! I love when you pull that out. It always takes your outfit to another level. I am horrible about getting cards out. Hopefully by the weekend. Glad you are feeling better. Heather

  6. I like your harness belt. It really stands out in this outfit. I haven't mailed my Christmas cards yet...I had planned handmade cards but I dont think i'll get around it. Just too tired and busy this holiday season.

  11. I'm glad you're starting to feel a little bit better! Cold or allergies...being stuffed up is never, ever fun. And, your 'running late' card schedule is still way ahead of my 'on-time' schedule. The plan is to get my cards out this weekend, though. Wish me luck!

    I love the harness! Such an awesome touch to the outfit :)

  12. Well, duh, of course the harness had to be in today's outfit! You look awesome, and glad to see you on the military/olive green bandwagon - wicked good with your colouring, hon.

    Sorry, I'm so behind. Sick. Tired.

  14. Umm...I haven't even started preparing my holiday cards, which is really bad because I usually make them myself and I'm running out of time! Maybe I'll just send New Years cards?

  15. I love this look! You are one of the only people I've ever seen who can pull off a harness without looking like you are trying desperately to pull off a harness... know what I mean? It suits you, I guess.

  17. Wow, I guessed I missed the post with the harness before. I saw this post, and thought "Audi". Really cool look!
