A Touch of Burgundy

IMG_4655

Happy Monday Ladies,

Hope everyone had a great weekend. This was the first time in 2.5 weeks I was able to go out for a glass of vino. Long story, but I am back on the mend. I thought I would take the classic combo of cream and black and add in just a “touch of burgundy’.

I am and always have been a big fan of the wine color family. Y’al know I am a big fan of wine, but we are talking about fashion here! Looking through fashion magazines and keeping up with trends, Burgundy is one of the hottest colors of the fall season. It was a beautiful day here in Charlotte, with the temp around 73 and the sun out.

I could wear burgundy everyday, I have always been a fan. For this outfit, I decided to just add touches of burgundy to add some “pop” to the cream and black ensemble I styled together. Over the past 3 months or so, I have acquired some new shoes, both flats and kitten heels. For me, it has been exciting to buy shoes, even with a one inch heel, as I used to have to wear sneakers due to my EDS. So this is a step forward!!

I didn’t make it to Target for the designer Alaturra, and everything sold out immediately, but I bought this scroll skirt and peplum top there, they have some cute items at times. I am a real fan of the colors that are being shown for fall, rich browns, grey, emerald, burgundy, are all favorites of mine.

Here is our lovely waitress Andrea, when we went out.

What color for this fall are you either coveting or have purchased?

Have a great day!

    Love this black and white theme, and the damask skirt with the back zip is super!
    The burgundy bag is a stunning addition, and is a favorite color of mine this season.
    I am buying across the color rainbow, but my favs are charcoal, burgundy, and patterns/ tweeds!

    I made it to Target for Altuzzara, but I didn’t really see anything I thought was the right proportion for my Petite size. I really wanted the belt or the coat, but my store didn’t have those items. I found a similar belt at Plato’s closet for $3, and you found two pieces that look sensational on you!
    I’ve always worn burgundy during the cooler weather. I’m cautiously testing different shades of brown, and I adore wearing navy πŸ˜‰

    Wonderful styling, dear Jess. Top and skirt a beautiful and your bag and shoes in burgundy are a perfect match. Most lovely is the necklace, I really love it.
    For this fall I have bought stuff in tan and also in red. Both colours combined with navy or black or gray will be my fall favourites.

    Hey Jess, love the color contrast of the cream, black & burgundy! I have a similar looking skirt I think I got it from H&M or Forever 21. When I went online to Target looking at the Altuzarra collection everything I was remotely interested in was gone πŸ™ I kept seeing the commercials when watching something on OnDemand and I thought hmm I could use some more clothes. Oh well maybe it was for the best.

    I just recently bought some smoking flats. Would love to have a burgundy pair. Your pop of burgundy was great for this monochrome look. And I love the skirt Jess.

    Welcome by to see my latest. Thanks and Happy Monday!!
