of you to do so as well.
And I also want to finally debut (after teasing it for a week) the necklace of my dreams.
***AND IT’S 20% OFF at ACCESSORY CONCIERGE WITH THE CODE PTMT20***
Actually, the entire site is 20% OFF with the code.
So here’s the BLACK AND BROWN look….with an awesome necklace thrown in for good measure!
I’m really excited about this whole outfit!
This dress is comfy and relaxed enough to just throw on and be like “No Big Deal”…..but you will look TOTALLY put together with a “No Big Deal” vibe.
Choose lighter shades of brown for more contrast.
If I could make the above sentence blink, I would. It’s that important.
It’s not ground breaking, but it’s something to keep in mind when putting together
a black and brown outfit.I’ve found that it’s actually better to mix a cognac brown, a camel, or a taupe (vs. a chocolate brown) with black for even more contrast and interest!
MORE CONTRAST = BETTER
It’s that simple.
And if you are going to get one bag this fall, make it cognac.
My favorite Barrington leather tote is of course included below, but I have some other options for you as well! People are always asking me if I had to own one bag, would I get black or brown.
For me, the answer is always brown. Fyi: the Barrington bag price is wrong for some reason on this pic. The leather tote is $250.
And here are some tall brown boot options!
And now, for a close up of my new necklace.
Look at the gorgeous beading!!!!!!
If you remember, it looked great with the teal shirt dress that I highlighted earlier this week as well.
And now they are ALL 40% OFF!!!
And just for fun, I want to show you the necklace 3 other times I’ve worn it since receiving it.
And I only received it like 7 days ago.
It really does go with everything.
(All clothing in this pic is old. Sorry!)
necklace / tee (40% OFF)/ similar jeans by same maker/
pointy toe flats (round toe flat option in saddle leather)
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the tee.
When I wore it on this particular day, I actually thought, “Can I wear this again? Is this getting awkward?” But I shushed my inner voice and wore it again.
Because it’s just too dang cute.
agate necklace / signature necklace (mine is antique gold)
And as long as we have a 20% OFF Accessory Concierge code (PTMT20), I thought it would be a good idea to show you some of my other current favorites!
Check out this new wrap bracelet with these gorgeous fall colors!
And I love THESE hoop earrings. I haven’t seen them in person yet, but they look SUPER similar to my beloved Gorjana hoops. And they are almost 1/3 of the price!
When I saw them on the site yesterday, I e-mailed Amy at A.C. and asked her to send me a pic of somebody the wearing the earrings.
This is Caroline (she’s head of fulfillment at A.C.). Isn’t she so cute?!!? 🙂
And DANG these earrings are good!
Another great item I wanted to highlight today is a scarf I actually first showed you last year.
It was so popular, they brought the same exact scarf back.
I about died when I was browsing online at Anthro and saw an almost identical scarf
for over twice the price.
And just in case you forgot in the last 4 seconds, right now you can get 20% OFF with the code PTMT20.

It’s super easy…and the winner will receive a pair of jeans of their choice (I obviously recommend the flare jeans) and a blouse (both from LOFT)!
There is just one way to enter, and I’ve tried to make it SUPER easy!
Go to my new “Flares are Back” Pinterest page HERE and repin the 2 images there!
That’s it, that’s all you have to do!
I’m really trying to increase my visibility on Pinterest (people don’t often repin my images because most of them have a cell phone in them! ha!), and this should help out greatly!
Thanks in advance for helping me out with this (#ittakesavillage) 🙂 and good luck!
The winner will be announced on Monday morning!
Also, leave your thoughts on BLACK and BROWN together!
