Mixing colors such as black and brown or black and navy can be a fashion faux pas for some fashionistas. But when a piece of clothing makes it easy and does the mixing for you, you can’t go wrong.
This jersey knit dress by Loft was an easy piece to pack for vacation. The soft brown stripes add flair and interest to what would have been a simple black dress. The drape neckline and matching belt add the final details. I wore my own flip flops because many times we ended up on walking on the beach.
The dress was perfect for touring the local Butterfly Gardens near Nags Head, NC. A simple wash and wear dress is as comfortable as a shirt and shorts while sight seeing. I added a supple brown leather purse that converts to a backpack. I picked up this unique bag by Perlina at the Goodwill store in Frazer, PA and saved it to use while traveling. I estimate this bag was originally around $150 and I paid only $9.97!
For fall, I’ll add a jean jacket for warmth and this winter I will pair the dress with tall black (or brown) boots and a cardigan. I love clothing that can transition through the seasons. And having pieces that take the guesswork out of mixing and matching colors makes getting dressed (and packed for vacation) easy!
