camel + leather







Even though people express an absurd aversion towards wearing black with blue or even black and brown together (or – shock! – all three), I happen to be quite fond of the pairing. Plus such a rule is severely outdated in my opinion – with all the mismatched prints, inspired shapes and fresh combinations, fashion doesn’t seem to possess rules anymore.

I accidently blended three of fall’s biggest looks today: (p)leather, poncho silhouettes, and camel, and the results were a kind of sophisticated-laid-back-cool that I truly enjoyed. I must confess, that I was previously disgusted by ponchos and found them not only frumpy, but also unappealing to no end. However, this year’s updated, long sweater version makes me swoon. Another sweater I will wear nonstop? Check. As for these fantastic leggings: I found them last year at UO for $80…? And being unable to bring myself to buy them, waited and waited, and it all paid off when I snatched it up for a mere $9.99. You see patience does pay off, and fall’s freshest perspectives really are incredible.

  6. I agree with you 100%! People feel like you can't pair black, brown or navy, and I do it all the time! I love those color combinations. As long as it doesn't look like you thought you were pairing two black things, and one is actually navy...! haha...but great post. I love your look. I went to H&M in search of that poncho/sweater but they were sold out :( I love it though! :)

  36. You got yourself a bargain with those leggings, they are a great fit too.

    Agree with you on ponchos, I always found them shapeless and unflattering however the new 'breed' of them this season is beginning to change my mind, love this one on you.

    Thanks for your sweet comment. Robbie xox

  48. That sweater looks beyond cozy! And I always get a giggle out of your stories of waiting and waiting for things to go down in price... but honestly, don't loads of the things you love get away from you?
    I bought a couple of poncho-esque sweaters last year and obviously they're all in Canada and I probably won't see them until next summer. ; (
