You don’t have to be afraid to mix black + brown! The key is to have one basic color holding it all together (like this white top with the subtle light brown stripes) and use the right tones of brown. You always want to re-incorporate the other colors wherever you can.

To help match more with the black jeans, I brought more black in with my accessories: my necklace, choker, watch, and the backpack. (PS- this choker is just a black ribbon!) My chunky knit is a darker shade of brown, but since it had hints of white and black mixed in – it was perfect! Plus, my fave espadrilles had a mix of brown + white that brought the whole look together!

This was a busy day for me. I was shooting a blogger, getting brunch with another blogger (#alwaysbrunching), oh and changing my phone! I was doing a lot of running around the city and this outfit was just the right amount of comfy. Not to mention, backpacks are my go-to for keeping all my essentials in an easy-to-carry bag!
