Cute Outfit of the Day: Black or Brown?

sweater: Merona for Target via Goodwill $4.99
lace top: Merona for Target via Goodwill $1.99
necklace: Target $12.99
jeans: F21 $15
black boots: Goodwill $3.99
brown boots: Aldo (gift from several yrs. ago)
Total Cost: $39.96

I was so excited to find this lace top at Goodwill. It was an item that I had my eye on for several months while it was at Target and I decided to wait to see if it would end up at Goodwill and it did! Hooray!

Now my question today is what boots do you like better with this outfit? The black or the brown? I liked the black but my husband liked the brown. So I'm guessing the brown will probably win because he's always right! He has such a great eye for fashion! I feel so lucky to have him to bounce ideas off of!

  1. Lindsey that necklace is so is just perfect for your outfit girl. I love the brown boots. I love the contrast as it breaks up the black and brings in the cardi. Have a great day. dawn suitcase vignettes xo

  2. i'm a big fan of mixing neutrals together. the combination of black, brown and gray together (or combinations) expands attire options endlessly!

  3. Love how you rocked this outfit with the lacey orange top! The black and brown items also totally work together! xx

  4. I think I would have to vote for the black boots...though really both look awesome! The sweater is a pretty copper-brown color I think!

  5. I, personally, am leaning toward the black boots!! But that is me in my endless effort to avoid *matchy matchy*! Growing up in the 80s when EVERYTHING matched it's a hard habit to break!!

    oh Lindsay...I'm trying SO hard to control my thrifting but you make it so difficult! My closet collapsed several weeks ago and my husband just rebuilt it. It's FABULOUS and soooo organized...I love it! As a result, I'm trying to control my inventory but boy you make me just want to start the engine and head straight for Goodwill! ;)

  6. I love them both! And that necklace is awesome! This post was great for me..I just picked up that sweater at my Goodwill's 50% off sale this weekend! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Another vote for brown! I think it helps to break up the black on the bottom and ties the whole outfit together. Love your blog!

  8. hi there!
    im new to your blog, and already in love with it. i love thrifting, and you show just how great and stylish someone can look, even while on a budget!

    im with your hubby today -- i prefer the brown boots. they add an extra layer of depth to the outfit which i love.

  9. I vote brown boots!

    Love the look either way, though

    And I'm especially lovin' that necklace!!

  10. Yep, your husband was right. The black boots were the way way to go. Your legs continue along one unbroken plane.
