Hope you're all interested in another summer white and brown ensemble ;) This is color combo (white+cognac) that I used to wear often in spring/summer, but I haven't been wearing much this season; I'd been planning to pull it back out for fall/winter, so this was a fun little test drive.
The combo with cognac as the brown and a little gray added in is a personal favorite, so I went that route: white with sheer stripes sweater (NAS), gray slouchy cotton long cargo shorts, cognac woven belt, and cognac heeled oxfords. I hadn't been wearing these shoes in spring/summer because they rub, but after discovering the magic of Body Glide I thought I'd give them another go. Unfortunately it's still not quite enough help so I'll probably go back to keeping these for fall/winter with hosiery, which is too bad because I much prefer how they look on bare legs. Accessorized on the glam side, with giant crystal earrings and a rich red-orange lipstick I usually reserve for fall/winter because it just works so well with the cognac (it's not nearly as neon as the photo shows though, had some color saturation issues today). Hair up to minimize the darkness, and stripy clutch to pick up a bit on my hair and also the sweater's sheer stripes.
I'm pleased with how non-earthy I was able to make this color combo, thanks for the inspiration as always Angie! Now I'm definitely feeling it for fall/winter.
