Break the Rules

by Jessica Sturdy on January 4, 2013

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.

J.Crew Vintage Cotton V-Neck Tee / LOFT Striped Skirt (purchased this fall, but sold out online) / J.Crew Super Opaque Tightsgifted Jack Rogers Black Wedge Booties (on sale and multiple colors to chose from!) / Bauble Bar Tassel Necklace / Bauble Bar Cheetah Bangle (similar) / Michael Kors Chain Link Watch

Thanks for taking my photos, Tracy!

I love this pairing! I love combining navy blue and black as well as brown and black. They’re an unexpected pairing, but they do work well together.

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 ;)
