WIWW – gray and brown

What I Wore Wednesday for me is all about just stepping a little out of my comfort zone – this did it for sure!  I have been seeing outfits with gray and brown.  I’ve always know that gray and brown DO NOT go together – you know, gray is black-based so it goes with black, not brown.  Well here’s to breaking rules – I wore a couple of different gray and brown outfits – and I think they turned out alright…

First up, gray stripes with black leggings, with added in brown on the belt and the boots (just got them – LOVE them!! love the side detail that you can’t see….and funny, last year Kate bought knee-high casual boots and I thought it was weird, then this year I HAD to have some – I’m always a year behind on fashion, if not later….) – gray sweater thing was seen HERE

 Secondly, to church I wore my gray dress from DownEast, seen HERE, sort of, with striped cardigan thing (seen HERE) with the boots and belt and big brown necklace:

So, thoughts??  Are you good to go with gray and brown or still iffy??  I think it has grown on me.  So I guess I can break that rule.  I still won’t be wearing pink with red anytime soon, although I know some people do that – I just can’t cross that line yet!

And random, finding those “seen HERE” links in my write up today were hilarious – I don’t remember any of my past WIWW posts and it was fun to see some – – I might need to do a WIWW blast from the past one week and review things from earlier this year….

    I really like the first outfit on you a lot. Very cute! Not sure about the second….maybe all the details and accessories are a bit much for me. But agree with the commenter before me that you can treat them both as neutrals and mix and match! Go grey and brown!!

    Isn’t it funny how fashion rules evolve? I was a staunch believe in not mixing brown with black OR grey until last year, now it’s my preferred choice! Your outfits are both cute, in fact, I have a picture saved on my computer of that DownEast dress because I loved it so much!

    I agree with Valentinegirl. I LOVE the first outfit. The second one is good too, but maybe a little busy? I’m not totally sure. I think the dress already has a lot of detail at the neck, and so I would either not wear a necklace at all, or a more subtle one. I’ve also been on the look out for a good set of casual red/brown boots. You’re always getting a great deal on things… were these the same? Where did you get them?!?
