14 Shades Of Brown

When I named this blog “14 Shades of Grey”, it was more of a joke (it’s a reference to an album by Staind) rather than a true reflection of my closet. If it was to reflect my closet at the time, “14 Shades of Blue” would be more apt. In recent years, though, especially during the fall/winter, “14 Shades of Brown” seems more appropriate. Take this outfit, for example – it is pretty much built around this neckerchief (the tag says “Sanderson”, which apparently is an English fabric designer). You may not be able to see it from the photos, but the pattern is very similar to this, and it totally appeals to my Anglophile, Morris & Co.-loving heart, so I just put together an outfit of brown items to match it.

(The outfit is also my interpretation of this outfit. Of course, I may be missing a certain “je ne sais quoi” quality that the girl in the photo has, but I’ve come to accept that I never have that “je ne sais quoi” quality anyway, so it’s OK.)
