Mixing Black With Navy

Happy day-off-from-work-and-school, all! Hope you're relaxing at home and find the energy in you to kick butt at work during this shorter week ;) 

I recently picked up this peacoat on mega sale at J.Crew- pleasantly marked down from $300 to $90. Who doesn't love a steal?! I will admit it's my first piece of navy outerwear (and maybe one of the only navy items in my wardrobe?), so I was hesitant to style it. I didn't want the navy to clash with my entirely black selection of shoes, but then I remembered reading a few articles from WhoWhatWear on exactly this topic- summary? To be fearless in the pursuit of a blavy outfit! :D 

The black booties are such a small amount of black that it was a good place to start, as opposed to some of the more bold ladies in the article I linked above. Next item on my sartorial bucket list? Perhaps adding a little more black to the equation, like a pair of trousers.

Do you guys have any fashion hesitations, like the one I described above? I'd love to know I'm not alone!
