Even though I spent another great day at the beach yesterday and it was 108 in the Val today, I can’t help but think about how this is the last week of summer for us (Elle starts Kindergarten NEXT WEEK, insert pathetic mom whimpering noises here). And even though the thought is depressing, it does mean new clothes and accessories which gets me through the day. Yes, I’m obsessed. One of my favorite combinations for fall, and always really, is black and tan. Yes-you can wear black with brown, in fact you SHOULD wear black with brown. It’s chic, classic and easy-almost everyone has something black and something brown in their wardrobe already. Bring some love to your closet and marry the two would ya!?! Here are a few of my faves. Yes, a couple are black and white rather, but they were too cute to leave out.
