My Style

Mixing black, white, and brown

Sometimes, it isn’t all about mixing bright colors in an outfit. Why not do it with neutrals too?

Black, white, brown, and tan can all pair together wonderfully, so I decided to embrace that with an outfit. When I spotted this patterned tank at Target last week, I knew it would be a great addition to my closet. The flowy fabric of the top is keeping me cool in the over 90° weather we are currently experiencing.

And because pants were definitely out of the question (I’m not sure that I’ll be wearing a pair for quite some time), it was time to break out some tuxedo shorts in their place. My jeans have officially been put into retirement for the summer. I might see them again in September or October. Am I the only one out there that can’t stand wearing jeans in hot weather? I just…can’t do it!

Scene Stealer Necklace JewelMint

So, about a year ago I accidentally forgot to “skip” a month on my ShoeMint account. Bad me, bad me. I have had a credit sitting in my account for so long, but no shoes were coming up that I just HAD to have. Then, I realized that for a limited time you can use your credits across the different Mint lines. My problem was immediately solved. I scored three necklaces in exchange for my ShoeMint credit over at JewelMint. Two of the three necklaces have arrived so far, and this Scene Stealer Necklace is one of them. I am in LOVE with it. Plus – the price tag on it was $29.99 – not too bad! JewelMint offers a number of discount codes on the site: I was able to snag two pieces for the price of one since it was my first purchase. Consider signing up if you like jewelry – you’re able to skip months and not be charged if you see the new offerings and aren’t interested. Just make sure you keep on top of it in your calendar if you do!

Do you pair neutral colors together in your wardrobe – black and brown, white and tan, etc?
