Made You Blush :: burgundy ankle pants + blush sweater

Saturday, November 7, 2015

Soft, feminine pastel shades are not just for spring and summer. In fact, light hues (i.e. lavender, blush, and periwinkle) are having a major moment. Think of them as a refreshing alternative to the season's typical navy and black palette. 
To give these cotton candy hues longevity until New Year's and beyond, pair them with a grounded neutral (think grays and tans) and/or rich jewel tones (such as sapphire, emerald, and burgundy)
In fashion (and in beauty), burgundy is one of Fashion Week 2015's hottest hues. Treat it as your replacement for gray and navy; trust, it truly is that versatile! These ankle pants from Ann Taylor, also featured here, are super comfortable and super polished. I've been throwing them on with pretty much everything lately. 
Blush and burgundy is a killer combination that I've been seeing everywhere lately (here, here, and here...just to name a few). It's sophisticated, sharp, and quite fresh. If you're looking to modernize your look, start with joining these key colors.
Whimsical necklace layering is a definite fashion 'do.' I love this particular piece because it's one necklace but looks like multiple - I often have people ask me how I was able to find such perfect chains to create a layered look. I love it that this piece makes it look like I put more effort into my outfit than I actually did!
I chose pearls and a glittery gold headband to play up the softness of my blush sweater. Feminine accessories truly accentuate the delicate vibe of this light hue. 
Although the rich chestnut color of this purse is gorgeous and versatile, what really drew me to this bag is its perforated leather exterior. It's such a unique piece and I knew I had the perfect crossbody on my hands when I saw how it matches my Sam Edelman booties to a T. But I have to give credit where credit is due, my mom picked this bag out for me - she has quite the eye! 

For this look I accentuated my eyelashes and lined my eyes with black eyeliner (pencil on bottom, liquid on top) to make my peepers really pop. I kept everything else soft and light.

These photos were taken in Boston just a few weeks ago when my family and I took a long weekend trip there. Boston is a typical getaway spot for us and we've been just about every year for the past five years. Boston definitely has a special place in our hearts and we never leave the city without a trip to Newbury Street (aka one of the world's most premier shopping destinations). These photos were taken there!

  27. Burgundy is definitely my go-to shade for fall- I looked in my closet after unpacking all my fall clothing from last year and filling a few gaps that like 1/3 of my closet is now shades of wine. I'm not mad at all though. Your color combinations are on point! I love burgundy with cognac.
