Break the Rules

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It’s OKAY to wear navy blue and black together! Better than okay… It feels modern & cool! :)

When you think of Jack Rogers, you probably think of their namesake sandals. But they have lots of other shoes, too! These wedge booties got me through my first day back in the city without a single wince. Cute and comfortable?! I’ll take it!

Obsessed with this tassel necklace from Bauble Bar! $28?! Can’t beat it! Reminds me of the Rachel Zoe tassel necklace I can’t afford.

Thanks for taking my photos, Tracy!

    Love how you paired these colors! I have that skirt too and am so glad I got it. And those Jack Rogers are adorable! Might have to get a pair :) Have a great weekend!

    I love pairing black and navy or black and brown–pretty much the only way I like to wear black, since it makes it feel less edgy and dramatic and not “me”! I say it especially works when navy or brown is the only accent color–just think of it as an accent rather than a neutral!!

    I was watching Chelsea lately last night and she did an interview where she was wearing a navy top, black pants and brown wedges…loved it & might have to try it myself. Totally agree with you, blue & black are great together.

    I have a DIY of the Rachel Zoe necklace coming up! It was a tough one, but so worth it. Love this entire outfit – I’m all for combining navy and black. Cognac and black is another favorite “taboo” color combination of mine 😉
