How To Wear Shades of Brown with Hints of Blue


I've been on a bit of kick lately of wearing shades of brown. This latest outfit features dark brown, beige and cream with a little blue thrown in for good measure! The dark brown pants are old Basic Editions skinny pants, the cream is a faux turtleneck and the beige sweater is a Poshmark find. We'll get to the shoes later. 

You can just barely see part of my blue addition in the butterfly necklace I'm wearing. This necklace was a retirement gift from the lovely AIG group to me. So, it is definitely a treasured piece. The other blue comes from the navy blue and brown boat shoes I'm wearing. These are Skechers and I ordered them from DSW recently using a Christmas gift card. These shoes are so comfortable and lightweight and I have been wearing them frequently since they arrived. They are also machine washable shoes, which is true for most Skechers shoes. I plan on wearing and enjoying these shoes for a long time! 

This next look comes courtesy of The Appalachian Trail as The Mr. and I enjoyed a hike there on Friday. I'm wearing a champagne color down coat (link is similar) which is oh-so-warm with blue jeans and blue fuzzy gloves. Too bad I didn't have a blue hat to go with those gloves but, alas, I had to make do with my trusty black hat. 

If you look closely, though, you can see a champagne colored fuzzy neck scarf tucked into my coat. This scarf, gifted to me at Christmas, is so soft and warm and I just love it! 

I think that adding touches of blue to outfits that feature shades of brown is a great idea. The color combo seems to work well together and I like the look very much! Brown just appeals to me in all of its shades. 

Interestingly enough, we found shades of brown in things we saw on the hike. Like this trail sign.

And this silo we saw driving toward the trail.

And in this old tobacco barn.

And, even in this beautiful house on the drive back home. This house, by the way, is an original Sears Roebuck house that was ordered from a Sears catalog back in the day. So cool!

Take a moment to look in your closet and see if you have some shades of brown that you can pair with some hints of blue. I think you will really enjoy the combination! Let me know what you find!

Until Next Time,

I really like how you paired brown with hints of blue. It's a nice combination. I especially like your new shoes! They look comfortable and stylish at the same time.

Love the Poshmark sweater - I can never find one like that.

Looks like a fun trip, and I especially like the Sears & Roebuck house.
