More Than a Color

“What can brown do for you?” Brown works so well for the folks at UPS, I thought I would play with that color today. The day’s all-brown look features a summery tube top paired with a flattering full skirt. A tan bag and tri-color metallic flats complete the outfit. Now, I am set to move around the city.
Have a great weekend!

    Love your bag!!!!
    The bag and the shoes are such great details with your brown outfit.
    Brown always reminds me chocolate (remember my chocolate cake post? ;))
    Now I want some 😀

    I’d like a pair of those UPS shorts (and the hot men that come with them)…

    You know where to shop for the brands at the right prices. Brown is not a very utilized color. I think perhaps there’s a fear of it. What can you match with it? Does it have life? and so on. What really makes this ensemble work is the ease of the white heels. If they were black or brown it would feel too heavy, but the white lifts it, and gives a nature feel. The tones accentuate your skin tone too. Nicely done.

    I love brown. It’s my new black. I intend to incorporate a lot of earth colors this year with splashes of brights.

    You look lovely.

    You have a great weekend as well.

    I love your blog. I come to it everyday. I’m very fashion challenged and have even considered hiring a stylist! I’m starting to get ideas from your page on how to put things together.

    I’m also mindful of my budget. Do you think you can also post what you paid for for the items in your outfit? It would give people an idea of how great they can look without spending a fortune.

    Thank you SO much and keep up the great work.

    I’ve always been afraid to wear all brown because I was always scared that people would think I was naked!!! :O … haha just kidding. It looks great on you my dear!

    Nywele: Ha! Big up to UPS. BR is one of my favorite stores.

    Laughing808: I surely don’t find great things at TJ or Marshalls all the time, and that is ok. I shop there often though, hence have accumulated a lot of items from those stores. This bag was a huge find, for it was on clearance for $69 (retail $225)!

    Kira Fashion: It’s a great shape, size, and color. Hope you get the one at Zara!

    Seeker: I sure do remember the chocolate cake post. It was delicious!

    Imelda: Don’t even get me started on the UPS men 🙂

    S. Watson: Deep sale searching for treasures is a way of life for me 🙂

    Cheryl Lynn: Earth tones are indeed staples!

    Capis, Danz, Enc: Thanks. I experiment with other colors now, but I always feel safe coming back to basic brown.

    Caroline: Wonderful! That’s a great suggestion, and I’ve thought about it before, but I still have some reservations. I would be happy to share the cost of any item with you if you just email me or ask in a comment. Oddly enough, I remember what I paid for everything.

    Secretista: LOL! I laugh because I know what you mean. I actually remember asking my mother a long time ago if folks would be able to see brown when I wore it.
