I used to be a strict fashion rule follower. No white after Labor Day or before Easter. Always wore pantyhose with dresses. A woman over 40 should always have short hair. You know the drill. If you grew up in the 60s and watched your mom struggle into a girdle you know where I’m coming from. I’m so glad those days are over. Today I’m breaking another “rule” – I’m actually wearing black AND brown together!! Please don’t be too shocked. It’s really ok, I promise. I’ve been seeing this look a lot lately on Pinterest so I thought I’d take a chance and duplicate an inspiration photo I found yesterday. I’ve already received compliments on my outfit – including a “cute, Mom!” from the lovely Mrs. K. I’d say that’s a good barometer of a successful outfit.
