Need Your Advice

Dearest Readers (or Reader because I have a feeling only my mom reads this),

I need your help.  I need your wise and worldly advice.  I have the tendency to mismatch my belt color with my shoe color.  I guess it’s more than just a tendency as it has become a daily offense.  For example:

I know I’ve showed you this picture before but it was the only photographic evidence I had of my potential crime.  My belt is a chocolate brown leather and my oxfords are a much lighter cognac.  Is this level of mismatching a faux pas?  Or am I in the clear?  I just need to know!

I’ve struggled with this conundrum for years now and I figured it was time to pose the question to the interwebs for enlightenment.  Am I allowed to wear different shades of brown in my belt and shoe?

What about light nudes and dark nudes?  Two shades of black?  You’re probably thinking to yourself that I’m slightly nuts, but does this problem ever cross your mind?  I can honestly say that I do not have a single belt that matches a single pair of shoes (and vice versa).

What say you?  Am I in the clear or do I need to hide in my closet forever…
