The first (and most major) leg of my European tour is ostensibly devoted to the UK release of Timeless. In honor of that book I present to you some outfits that mirror its color pallet.

Not willing to do a whole outfit in shades of brown (with perhaps a pop of mustard)? How about some nice brown accessories?

    "Have to say loving the Countess Nadasdy choice but my absolute favorite is the Primrose choice, totally in love with that! Could see myself wearing these two gowns especially the Countess one, the Primrose one is more of a ball gown I reckon! <3 <3 <3"

    "I really love that 1960s Luis Estavez dress. Also the Primrose gown is gorgeous.

    Browns are wonderful. They go great with my complexion and coloring and I love adding a pop of color for fun. Also, chocolate, coffee, and tea are all brown, hence it must be a good color, right?"
