I don’t think I own a single solid-brown piece in my closet, except for shoes. As a color, it even sounds kind of sad – unless you call it “chocolate.” 😊 But all it takes is the right cut and print, and brown can be festive.

I found this cool blouse while thrifting in NYC. The funky pattern caught my eye, and I had heard of the maker, Orla Kiely. She’s an Irish designer who mostly creates homeware and handbags, all in her signature warm colors. The khaki linen skirt is thrifted too, made by by “Frankie and Missy”, about whom I could find nothing on the net. Perhaps these gorgeous models, Frankie and Missy Rayder, made a few pieces for sale?
This mix of brown with gray, red, and yellow really does appeal to me, and the blouse looks terrific with jeans. I’m wearing a funky 1960’s vintage necklace, a gift from a friend via his late mother’s jewelry box. Keep vintage alive!
Are you rocking the brown, or should I say the cafe au lait?
