Burgundy Moment

burgundy-momentI’ve been having a moment with burgundy lately and lucky for me, so have retailers. It’s so appropriate for the season and looks good on just about everyone. I especially love the combination of burgundy with navy and the dramatic  vibes it gives. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite burgundy pieces that I’ve added to my wardrobe as well as others I have my eyes on. 

  1. J.Crew Tuxedo Ruffle Top in Stretch Silk Georgette: I ordered this in my normal 00 and unfortunately had to bring it back. It is a lot blousier than their other tops and the 000 that I needed was sold out in all colors. Hopefully your size is still in stock! This also comes in a yummy navy and white polka dot print. How adorable would the polka dot blouse be with this skirt?!
  2. Steve Madden ‘Edit’ Burgundy Booties: This bootie comes in this amazing burgundy as well a stunning blue and black. I love pieces like this that can really take even a pair of jeans and a t-shirt to the next level. 
  3. Printed Topshop shirt (currently 40% off!): If you have a hard time finding off the shoulder tops that don’t look like it’s swallowing you alive, you’ll really appreciate this top. It’s a good length to wear with higher waisted bottoms if you don’t prefer the cropped look and satisfies the off the shoulder cravings without the fabric bulk. I love a good print and the burgundy tones of this one makes it the perfect piece to transition the summery style of ‘off the shoulder’ into the autumn months. You can see this on me here
  4. Vince Camuto ‘Barsha’ Lace-up Pump: This would be so gorgeous with a LBD for the holidays. I own a few different versions of both flats and heels that lace-up and it always gives a classic simpler outfit a whole new look.
  5. BlankNYC Burgundy Suede Jacket: I’ve tried this jacket on in an XS in the tan color and it has a very petite friendly fit.  I didn’t end up keeping that one because the color didn’t look that great against my yellow toned skin. I LOVE this shade though and it is so unique. It’s such a great quality jacket for the price point and real suede. 
  6. J.Crew Faux Leather Pleated Mini Skirt: This skirt comes in both a beautiful burgundy as well as a chic black. If you’re lucky enough that it is still in stock in your size, act fast as sizes are extremely limited and selling out fast. I’m hoping it gets restocked as I was only able to grab the black mini in the petite sizing but it ended up being too short. Leather whether real or faux is one of those fabrics that look so cheap when not done right but this one is definitely a winner. It comes in both regular and petite sizes we well as a midi and mini length.

Sunday nights can really make or break the rest of my week. My Sundays typically consist of running errands, picking up groceries, and getting some meals prepped so that the rest of my week isn’t just pure chaos. Exciting stuff, right? I guess I’m a creature of habit so I really like my routines. Other than meeting with some contractors for some impending house renovations and decompressing from the work week, our weekend was relatively low key. We met up with my parents for dinner Saturday night and I ate to my heart’s content of some good Korean food I’ve been craving. 

I’ve been obsessed with loafers more than ever before. It gives my outfits a certain edge and extra character  that I’ve been really into. I’ve accumulated a few pairs this season and they have been on heavy rotation. This one by Louise Et Cie is one of my favorites and also comes in a gorgeous black patent with gold hardware. I opted for this shade because of how beautifully it pairs with navy (which I happen to own a lot of) and because it is unlike anything else in my closet. I just happened to be wearing this dress when I tried these on for the first time and fell in love with the combo. It pairs just as well with a pair of smart trousers and skirts. I love the contrast of the slightly more masculine vibe of the shoes with the more girly wardrobe I own. 

You can never own enough throw on and go shift dresses. This polka dot one by Zara is just that. Perfect for the office or a casual day. It’s a substantial jacquard fabric that won’t blow up on windy days so it requires very little planning to wear.

I love an interesting print and a pair of jeans with a great fit. Easier said then done for most women…These cropped jeans are the perfect regular length if you’re petite like me and they fit like a dream. Jeans are something that I typically invest a little more in because they’re such a staple and only get better with age. I got this cropped version by Rag and Bone price matched at Nordstrom but think they’re worth it even at the full price. They are a little bit thicker and so it will be perfect for the cooler months ahead. I also love the vintage wash that leans more gray than yellow like some jeans of this particular style can be and the distressing isn’t overdone.

 I’ve been enjoying the lace-up style shirts for a few months now and always love a good print. This star version is such a steal and not tacky as it can sometimes come off if not done right. The black and white color scheme and relaxed fit keep it casual and not too childish. A feature I really enjoy on this top is the elastic on the sleeve. I tend to roll up my sleeves and this makes it so convenient as it stays in place now when I push them up. All around a win…. did I mention that it’s less than $17?
