I'm Wearing Brown - What?

Today I'm wearing brown (twice) - can you believe it?! Ok to understand this little shocker, it is crucial to know that as a child, my sister and I would tease our grandma about her favourite colour being brown - "it's so boring" we would say - well just look at me now.  

I think there are two reasons why I am starting to get on board with the colour brown and this outfit showcases these perfectly. Firstly, I have long been obsessed with this gorgeous tan brown shearling coat that I picked up a few years ago. I am so chuffed that I get to wear it again after its little hiatus during the mild winter I spent last year in Barcelona and it is keeping me super warm now the temperatures have plunged in Montreal. Secondly, I have discovered that blue is the perfect colour to wear with rich, autumnal brown and golden shades and and I have a lot of time for the colour blue. I am absolutely loving the way this blue and white striped shirt - borrowed from Lewis' recent thrift store shirt haul - looks with these deep brown cigarette trousers. Oh and finally - yep, that's a third reason, my bad - brown is "in" don't you know? My grandma will be pleased to know that she is so bang on trend this season. 

What do you think of the colour brown? Have you been trying any new colour palettes or pushing your fashion boundaries recently?

Aujourd'hui je porte la couleur marron (deux fois) - est-ce que vous pouvez en croire?! Bon, pour comprendre mieux ce "choc", il faut savoir que quand j'étais petite, ma sœur et moi nous moquions de notre grand-mère parce que sa couleur préférée est marron - "c'est une couleur ennuyeuse" nous la disions - mais regardez cette tenue!

Je pense qu'il y a deux raisons pourquoi je commence à aimer la couleur marron et ce look vous les montre parfaitement. Premièrement, ça fait longtemps que je suis obsédée par ce manteau marron en mouton magnifique que j'ai acheté il y a quelques années. Je suis super contente que je peux le porter encore après son hibernation l'hiver dernier pendant que j'étais à Barcelone et il me tient très chaud maintenant que la température a plongé à Montréal. Deuxièmement, j'ai découvert que du bleu est la couleur parfaite pour aller avec des teintes chauds de marron et mordoré et comme une de mes couleurs préférées, cela me va très bien! J'aime beaucoup comment cette chemise à rayures bleues et blanches - que j'ai emprunté de Lewis - va avec ce pantalon costume en marron profond. Oui et finalement - une troisième raison, en fait - la couleur marron est à la mode, vous ne le savez pas? Ma grand-mère sera très contente qu'elle est super tendance cette saison.

Que pensez-vous de la couleur marron? Essayez-vous des teintes différentes que normal récemment ou peut-être vous poussez vos limites de mode dans une autre façon?

This is such a gorgeous outfit! I love the colour scheme, I've been after a pair of trousers that colour for ages. I really like brown when it comes to clothes but I just don't think it's a colour I can pull off. But then again, I barely stray from my all-black. I like to play it safe
