All the neutrals play together. That’s why they call it a neutral, right? But for much of my style life, I’ve been shy to mix brown with navy with black. I’ve since discovered that they do complement each other and make an outfit more inviting.

It’s downright cold today by Florida standards (high of 62 degrees!) and a fine opportunity to wear some layers. I love all these pieces separately AND together. They’re all neutrals, but not boring ones. The silhouette is long and lean, another of my style favorites. The black drop-crotch trousers that look like a skirt were found in a boutique in Soho, while shopping with my friend Ali, of My Makeover Mission. She knows ALL the cool places to shop.
I layered a zebra(?) brown-and-cream thrifted sweater over a plain black GAP Body tee, also thrifted. The slim-cut black leather jacket is second-hand, too, found in Vancouver’s My Sister’s Closet, and picked for me by the fabulous Suzanne (go see her Etsy shop, asap!).
Are you feeling the neutrals or are you colorful today? Show us in the link-up.
