Shades of Brown

Sweater: H&M
Dress: H&M
Tights: Target
Shoes: Nordstrom in the ’90s

This is my favorite kind of outfit to wear on the weekends lately: a dress or skirt that’s loose and kind of short, a pullover sweater and tights. I’m ripping off one of my coworkers with the color scheme here, too, by the way. She was wearing a black and white dress with a kind of orangey-tan cardigan at work yesterday, and it made me want to pair this brownish sweater and rust tights with my bow-print dress.

I love how these clunky shoes are trendy once again. I’m pretty sure I bought them when I was about 13 or 14 for a school dance. I remember wearing them one Christmas Eve when I was a teenager with a sort of rosy, watercolor-print, lingerie-inspired skirt (which I also still have, but dang, that thing looks like it should be underwear!), a long-sleeved berry top, a necklace with a maroon pendant and my hair long and curly with a baby barrette in it. I also remember that I was wearing Pearberry spray from Bath & Body Works. Oh, ’90s memories.


  1. Those colors really work well together. That skirt is the cutest :)

  2. I love your shoes I had a pair very similar but I wore them to death. You are so lucky to have them still.
