I really like the dark but neutral color palette. I can't pull off wearing no color but you always look so sophisticated!

Liset said...

You make a bunch of brown neutrals work really well together! I love the background and the beret especially. :)

this is gonna sound weird, but i really like the way your shirt is poking out of your cardigan sleeves. maybe it's the way the polka dots look with the tan. or maybe i'm just itching for some more cardigan/blouse combos to come around. either way, it looks adorable!
