Burgundy Love



I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but burgundy has officially taken over my wardrobe this season.  Literally can't get enough.  I especially love pairing it with black for some reason.  It's definitely a favorite combo of mine, although I feel like I say that about all of the colors that I wear. [lol]  Burgundy also reminds me of Christmas!  It is too early to bring that up yet?  I am already counting down the days. 









Cardigan: Macys | Sweater: Forever21 [old, similar] | Jeans: Habitual [old, similar
Booties: Target [like this style] & [love these in tan] | Bag: Prima Donna | Hat: H&M [old, similar


I always love pairing the new with the old.  These burgundy skinnies are from two years ago and I'm actually surprised that they still fit!  I have worn them numerous times on the blog before.  They're super stretchy and extremely comfortable.  I thought it was time to bring them back out to play.  I did a little shopping at Macy's last week and came across this cardigan vest... I guess that's what you would call it?  I gravitated towards it instantly because I don't have anything like this.  I love the fact that it's both a cardigan and it's sleeveless.  It's perfect for the weather right now since we still don't need to do too much layering just yet.  You could easily thrown on a coat over this though if need be. I might pack it for Ireland since the weather over there is pretty similar to the temps over here.  I will be in a lot of rain though!  These booties have quickly become a new favorite of mine.  They're from Aldo A+ sold at Target.  I've already worn them several times.  Super comfortable and love the heel.  I've also been using this mini bag almost every day.  It's so great to take a break from my bigger ones. 

I posted a photo of this outfit the other day on instagram and gave a little bit of insight into what went down behind this shoot.  I was completely out of it this day. This is when my transmission went on me and I had to bring my car to the mechanic. I lost my wallet for an entire day, but thankfully ended up finding it.  When I went to shoot this look the camera battery was dead.  There were a few other little things that happened and I was walking around in zombie mode after my birthday because now that I am 32 I can't hang like I used to.  I was really just one big hot mess!  As much as I love what I do, to be 100% honest taking photos is not always fun.  Sometimes you just aren't feeling it or you are not in the mood.  I always seem to power through somehow and I'm happy that this shoot worked out! 

Happiest of Thursdays! <3
