Mixing Brown and Black in Summer

This post was sponsored by Victoria Emerson.

Welcome to Day 25 of 25 Days of Summer Fashion! Today I’m ending this series with mixing brown and black in summer.

We usually think of brown and black as winter colors, but I love them year round. And of course, who doesn’t love some polka dots?

Mixing Brown and Black in SummerI added this Victoria Emerson bracelet. The bracelet is called the Alicante, and it adds shades of brown and dark gray.

Mixing Brown and Black in SummerI have mentioned this before, but with summer, I like to keep my jewelry pretty simple since it’s hot outside.

Mixing Brown and Black in SummerA cute bracelet and some earrings and I’m good to go! Victoria Emerson has so many bracelets to choose from, and you can wear them with dresses or with a graphic tee and denim shorts. Either way, they work! (It looks like it has pink in it, but it doesn’t.)

Mixing Brown and Black in SummerI styled this black tank with an olive skirt here. A black tank is a wardrobe staple, and I will spend more money on staple pieces. This will be a great layering tank in the fall.

Mixing Brown and Black in SummerI thought this polka dot skirt was perfect for summer. It has a half-slip underneath with side buttons and an airy side slit.

Beauty For the Heart~~Her secret is simple. On her worst days, she prays, and on her best days, she prays.

“In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning, I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.” Psalm 5:3

“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” 1 John 5:14

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:6-7

Have a blessed day!

  1. I can not believe the 25 days is over! I love today’s outfit! So simple, but so pretty! Thank you for helping to guide all of us who may be “wardrobe challenged”😉

  2. I am envious of your toned, tan arms. No flabby chicken arms on you. Please share your arm toning exercises with the rest of us. Love your blog.

  3. This is probably my favorite outfit you’ve worn in this summer series. So classy and pretty. Love everything about this! Simply beautiful.

  4. I love the top and skirt, but I feel those thick strapped, beige sandals are too heavy looking, and just not a good colour for that pretty outfit. Now imagine that pretty outfit accompanied with a pair of red, thin strapped, delicate sandals. It just needs a pop of colour, such as red sandals to take that outfit to another level. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I wore this outfit to church yesterday. I received so many compliments! One of my favorite purchases. Thank you!
