Ahh, the Fall weather is finally starting to peek on in to my life and I couldn't be happier. Of course, my biased Southern California perspective should be noted here, but nonetheless, the cool calm of the final months of the year are, in my opinion, the most beautiful.
Now I must start by saying that I've never been a huge fan of wearing the color brown. I've always thought that it washed me out by blending in with my pale-ish skin color and neutral hair color. But I've learned there is actually an easy way around that! Add a pop of color to break up that "blah" territory. I always feel like my lips blend in with my face, which blends in with my hair, so I added a bright red lip and it made all the difference.
And because I like to live on the edge... I chose to pair black and brown TOGETHER. Think of the risk. I'm a slave for a good waist belt and this one had a little edginess to it with the studs. I love a fresh stud in the morning. And these black boots were a gift from my ever so stylish father Andre. He once told me that the most important thing in a person's wardrobe is to have great shoes. Any man that wore platforms with real fishtanks and live fish in them during the 70's should be trusted. That is just something I know for sure.
