Breaking the rules: brown and black

Today is Marvelous Monday! But in all honesty I actually forgot until a couple of hours ago. I didn't do anything today except make a trip to Walmart; hence the very limited makeup of only mascara and the super casual outfit. Today's theme was breaking the rules. Had I remembered earlier, I probably would of come up with a more controversial outfit- oh well though, this is what you get! Brown and black, I never really have understood why people say not to put them together, or black and navy for that matter, I rather like 'em. I guess you could add another rule breaker in there too, the skull on the shirt is leopard print and I have seriously heard people come up with things like fat women shouldn't wear animal print, or that animal print is trashy looking-all I can say is fuck them. 

I have done a couple of other posts about "the rules" that can be viewed here and here

Our Philosophy for Marvelous Monday: Monday is nobody's favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We're on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing Marvelously!

Be sure to check out the other women's posts, links will be provided at the bottom of the page. 


Shirt: Miss Popular from Ross. Black Jeans: Torrid. Shoes: Nicole from Ross. Rose Gold Jewelry: Old Navy.


I thought about adding a brown jacket, but it was a little warm so I didn't feel like dealing with it.

  5. Love this look, that top is gorgeous. I've never understood the whole don't mix brown and black, I really like the combination. And plus size people rock the heck out of leopard print. :)

    1. Thanks, and I agree. I really would like someone to break the rule down for me, I've never heard a justification-just don't do it. lol

  7. I don't understand why people say black and brown shouldn't be paired together either, I think they look good together and the way you paired it looks great. Also I don't know what people think bigger people shouldn't wear animal print, that's dumb, you look great animal print. :) I really like your theme this week, good job! :)

    1. Thank you. I think the leopard print thing is because it's considered a "sexy" print, and therefore if you are over weight you are therefore not entitled to look sexy, idk.

  8. Nice casual look! I love breaking fashion "rules" and this pairing shows how ridiculous that rule is anyway.
