Fashion pet peeves

I'm not trendy nor particularly fashionable but I know what I like and what I don't like. Some things that I don't like continue to haunt me, even way back from high school.

Black and brown -- It may be a trend, and celebrities may be wearing it, but I still don't like it.

Navy and black -- Again, a popular thing to do, especially with black shoes and navy pants... but I just don't like it. I remember having this discussion with my dad and he asked what he should wear in place of the black shoes with his navy suit. I said brown... he just made a face. Ha! At least Liz was with me on this one.

Khaki and black -- Ask any of my friends from high school. I hated khaki and black, especially the dark khaki. I've grown to be okay with light khaki and black, but it has to be done right -- in my opinion.

White shoes and Black pants -- In high school, these shoes were really popular (totally dating myself here) and all the "popular girls" wore them with black pants. I never understood and therefore, never liked.

Black shoes and White socks -- Can you say Michael Jackson?

Brown and Gray -- this kid in high school wore a very nice gray dress pant with brown dress shoes and it just totally didn't go. They were a cool gray and the brown was really warm, kind of reddish. I didn't like it. Still don't.


  1. khaki and gray is my pet peeve! hubby will wear gray shirts with khaki shorts. drives me nuts!

    i've kind of relaxed on navy and black... kind of. like a navy dress and black heels cuz brown def wont work there. unless they're sandals? i don't know. but for men, def navy and brown shoes.
