Warning. There are like a million photos coming your way that will make you super jealous that you didn’t also get the great idea to go to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden last weekend. I’m also pairing black & navy blue in every single photo. GASP. AVERT YOUR EYES, PEOPLE WHO’S MINDS ARE BLOWN RIGHT NOW.
I’m not a rebel in any way (actually, I’ve always been a boring goody-two-shoes), but I know fashion rules were meant be broken. I don’t even understand why people try to set rules, because trends and creatives crush them on the daily.
Black & navy blue are forbidden to be paired together… why?! Who even knows, because people have been wearing their trendy Yankee caps with all black in New York for the last 10 years. It’s pretty standard, so stop telling your daughters/sisters/friends that it’s frightening.
I think I may have started mixing the two, because every time I pulled something out of my closet it would take me 10 minutes to even figure out whether it was is black or navy (does anyone else never remember the color of the clothes they bought?), so I gave up and just wore them together.
I survived, and have been all about the combo ever since.

This particular outfit was centered around my cool new a.n. designs jeans, and I just kept matching, until it was the perfect mixture for me. What I think makes it look like I am blatantly breaking a”rule” rather than just got dressed in the dark is the fact that I’m mixing different textures: fuzzy jacket, leather belt, soft denim pants. It looks intentional that way.
Let me know in the comments if you can think of a fashion rule that cannot be broken, and I’ll try to comment back with proof that it’s possible. It’ll be fun! Happy rule-breaking, my fashion rebels.
Jeans are from a.n. designs and are the Straight Ankle Long Cuff (Denim & Twill) ones in navy.

(P.S. Hubby took 95% if these photos, so I can’t take the credit. He doesn’t have a blog or use his Instagram sooo I can’t be expected to just let these pretty shots die…)
