Neutrals are easy... all of them should just automatically "match," right? I recently got schooled on this, because this outfit took so many attempts! I am all about the inspiration outfit and wanted to create something similar, but it wound up being quite the puzzle. Maybe neutrals give you too many options, thus making it harder to narrow down? I can't say for sure, but I do know that I'm happy with the end result. (I will definitely keep tinkering with it, but the other looks I tried also don't hold a candle to this one.) Neutrals... not always as easy as they look!
