K.I.S.S. - The Perfect Trifecta

I've decided that I will start a new series every now & again called K.I.S.S (keep it simple silly).  These posts will focus on keeping outfit inspirations simple & easy to put together.  Today I wanted to talk about one of my favorite color combinations...Black & Brown with Denim.

This trifecta of colors is timeless & classic as well as chic.  Again, easy to fall back on when inspiration is lacking.  Of course the other place you should go when you're lacking inspiration is Pinterest, right?!  So here are a few of my favorite Black, Brown & Denim pins from my boards.

Black maxi, long gold necklack, tan bag and shoes, denim jacket
Black Maxi 

Soon this!! Black dress, brown belt, brown boots

Black Tee with Denim Shorts

As you can see, your combinations of these 3 colors can be in the form anything from dresses, to shorts, to rompers, to jackets & chambrays, to footwear & accessories - which just makes this combo even more simple to put together.

As always, I like you guys to know that I "walk the walk", so here's how I've worn this combo lately.

This is the outfit I wore to an Anniversary dinner with my Husband.  The dress is from Target (old), necklace is also Target (recent but can't locate online) & shoes are Zigi Soho via DSW.  

That wraps up this post on K.I.S.S.  Hope you can find some inspiration among these ideas!
