A Mixing of Dark Neutrals

When fall weather comes around, I feel like it's totally acceptable to blend all kinds of dark neutrals together.  Take my outfit for example- navy shorts, grey over-the-knee socks, a black sweater and a tan top & bag, I'm a huge cluster of dark neutrals...but for me, it works.  What about you guys?  Do you stick to only wearing navy or black?  Or black or brown?  Or do you mix them all in like me?





















































Top: Gap (Similar here & here)
Sweater: Michael Stars
Shorts: c/o Chicnova 
Socks: Here
Jewelry: Earrings- Vintage
Bag: Louis Vuitton Empreinte Lumineuse PM
Boots: Old (Similar here & here)

REMEMBER that you only have until TOMORROW to try to win this bag from Fossil!  As of today, I have less than 20 entries!  It takes less than 5 minutes to come up with an outfit post on pinterest- for those of us who pin, we do this daily anyways!  I would definitely do this if you like this bag because your chances of winning are very high!

  55. I love a mix of dark and neutral ! And you are looking great in this look. I adore your boots and your earrings too ! Although I have not experimented with this combination that much but I have noticed that people in Scandinavian countries{in Sweden, Finland, etc. etc. } generally prefer to wear this neutral+dark color combination.
    wishing you a lovely day !

  56. How pretty are you in these pics! I love that you're wearing thigh high socks rather than tights with your shorts which is a pet peeve of mine. So glad I finally have time to visit again. I've missed you my blogger bud.

  82. I definitely mix neutrals all together, I love the way they look! And since they're all neutrals, you don't have to worry about making a mistake with the "matching" and all that. I absolutely need to get some boots similar to those :)
