I like the color brown although I'm often drawn more to the lighter shades. It has always been that one color I've found difficult to work with. I would usually pair it with lighter shades of brown or cream colors which works but I've always known more could be done with it. Especially now with all the mixtures of colors both bright and soft and patterns we would've never thought of styling together. When I received the lovely bangle from Francesca’s Collections which I won from Casee's personal blog I thought "What will I wear it with?". I know that must sound silly to some of you right? Well, my dream the other night answered the question as I saw myself wearing my white skirt with lace details (which I've had for years), a brown top and my new grey vest from American Eagle Outfitters (the perfect layering piece for warm weather!). I wondered how the grey would look with brown but I tried it the next morning and this was the result! I actually really liked the combination and I can now say I feel a little more confident in working with brown in the future!

So, how do you feel about the color brown my friends? Is there another color you find difficult to work with? Maybe you'll get lucky and dream up an outfit like I did!
