Wearing all my brown favorites! This month the theme was chosen by Sonja! Welcome to the monthly edition of Match made in Seven! We are a international group of fashion bloggers who meet once a month. One of us chooses a theme in turn, and that can be anything. A book, music, a color, a movie. And then we style an outfit based on that theme. It’s fun to collaborate with other fashion bloggers! Don’t forget to visit my blogger friends and see how they interpreted the theme of this month!
Why is this color always so hard to find!
I can remember that when I was 15, I received clothing allowance from my parents. That only lasted a moment because shortly after they got divorced and that fun was over. But it gave me the freedom to buy what I wanted. I therefore remember that I bought brown corduroy trousers with a brown striped sweater. In a season that nobody wore brown. But I thought it was a beautiful color.
Well I usually find dark brown hard to find in the fall. But this season, it looks like the new black. Immediately bought a cardigan and blouse and fortunately I had already scored over the knee boots a few years ago. Today I show you some of my favorite looks in brown.
Beautiful in brown…. at least I think so(lol)
This is a maxi skirt that I also wore as a dress. Havn’t got it anymore, I am not a maxi skirt kind a girl. But I think it looks very good with blue!
This was a short cardigan. I bought it because I wanted a brown cardigan and could not find one in the right color. Except for this one, but it was a poor quality. I just wanted it to add some dark brown to a few outfits.
I loved this top. It’s beige, that is from the brown palette. But I definitely should not wear beige in my face.
I love this dress, it’s pre loved. But I like it better with thick tights and boots. And that dark brown cardigan. I havn’t tried that combination yet, but I will.
This was a skirt that I wore with a brown striped vest and cool brown boots. The vest was to small after a few years and the boots were completely worn out. I loved that outfit.
I sometimes do love these printed skirts. This one was so lovely with deer. Again with that cheap cardigan and my beloved over the knee boots.
I hope you liked my favorite brown outfits and hope you will visit my lovely blogger friends to see what they are wearing!

I especially love the first and last outfit shown Nancy, both beautiful skirts. You seem to be able to wear all kinds of colours and styles and look good in them. What I love most about the colour brown is the association with nature and…with chocolate, so wearing brown items always make me happy! Love, Lieske
Haha, I never actually associated it with chocolate! Haha, from now on I will!
You have really great pieces from the brown color palette. Beige washes me out too but I still really like it! My favorite is that skirt – the photo that was taken inside – love that look!
Oh yes, that skirt has been one of my favorites too for years! Thanks Kellyann!
I agree that brown is very hard to find. You rock this color in all of these looks! The leopard look is my fave.
Wow Nancy, die rokken die je draagt zijn allen zo mooi! Ik hou er van!
Bruin is een lastige kleur, maar ik hou er van!
Nou ik dus ook want ik draag eigenlijk best veel bruin. Het was een leuk thema!
Nancy, I love your brown outfits! I can see how it looks especially nice with blue shades. Thanks for the inspiration! Another month, another challenge…Lol!
Almost a year now! Wow, time flies doesn’t it! Thanks Darlene.
I love a bit of brown myself, Nancy. Would love to see your pre-loved dress with opaques and high boots. And that printed deer skirt is to die for! xxx
It’s fun isn’t it. And the colors are also very nice. Thanks Ann!
Your looks are all great!
This line, “This was a short cardigan. I bought it because I wanted a brown cardigan and could not find one in the right color. Except for this one, but it was a poor quality. I just wanted it to add some dark brown to a few outfits.” I feel like that’s how a lot of us end up with too many things in our closets. We buy the thing we don’t like so much to hold us over til we find the PERFECT thing…ugh!
Yes, stupid right. Because it never looks good and you’re never happy with the cheaper one!
Nice outfits Nancy – haven’t got much brown in the wardrobe, but it makes a nice alternative to black doesn’t it! Jacqui x
Yes it does. Brown is a bit warmer, but less cool. Lol.
All such great ways for wearing brown. Hope you are well and wishing you a Merry Christmas next week.
Merry Christmas Gemma!
Love your skirt collection! I have to look at my closet to see what I have in brown: I think I have a lot less nowadays.
I had more then I thought!
I love your brown skirt! You look so elegant!
I love all of your brown outfits, Nancy! Brown is a color that rarely makes an appearance in my wardrobe. I always have trouble styling it. But I may have to rethink that.
And it looks good with almost every color, just try!
You wear brown well! I was just looking at a brown tee yesterday and I decided not to get it but I keep thinking about it – maybe I should have, haha!
Hope that you’re having a great week 🙂 I had a fun day out shopping and a family birthday celebration dinner in the evening yesterday! 🙂
If it sticks in your head, buy it! Haha, thanks Mica!
You did great! I love that look with the denim skirt and leopard top and your “cheap” brown cardigan. And I also love the one you said you wore with the striped vest that you didn’t have any more. These are all beautiful ways to incorporate browns, but those two are my favorites!
Oh thank you very much! That is very kind of you!
I love a rich chocolate brown, whether in a dress, blouse, skirt or pants. It’s a great colour, but yes, hasn’t been around much for about a decade – it’s nice to see it coming back. I love that skirt with the deer print – so pretty!
Fun right! Thanks Sheila!
The brown color is very tricky. At least for me. I’m finding it pretty difficult to find the shade I like and which looks good on me as well. I love your outfit with the big floral print skirt and over knee boots.
Thanks Anna, I can’t picture you in brown either!
Great looks, Nancy! I always have a hard time finding brown as well and so I don’t wear it often. And tans are really not good on me so I bypass them completely. But you have lots of gorgeous pieces in shades of brown!
And more then I thought!
