The answer to the wardrobe conundrum? Cognac.... Always cognac.

This skirt was a quirky thrifted find that I've rarely worn in the past. Due to its unusual, slightly-greenish gray color (not easily discerned from this photo), it's hard to find items that work with it, other than black, and the style also limits which tops and blazers combine well (trust me, I tried almost all of them one particularly frustrating morning).  Throwing on this cognac jacket was a last-minute choice that really seemed to work.  

One of my favorite wardrobe discoveries of recent note has been cognac brown, a really useful wardrobe workhorse (check out this outfit, or this one).  I now have a few items in this color, this jacket being my newest addition.  They are all in regular rotation and often satisfy that special something needed in an outfit.  No matter what direction my future style inclination may shift, I can't see myself ever completely giving up this color, it's just too versatile!
