Red on Red







Sweater: H&M {not online, similar here} | Dress as Skirt: Mango via JC Penny {no longer online, similar here for great price!} | Shoes: Steve Madden | Necklace: Baublebar {my new favorite} | Bracelet: JCrew | Earrings: c/o Versona Accessories | Glasses: Calvin Klein

We all know I'm obsessed with the color maroon/burgundy/oxblood. As much as I'm excited for Spring to arrive, I'm a little sad to say goodbye to this rich hue. I tried lightening up the mood a bit by pairing it with a bright red and I loved the result! Or I just love wearing anything with a little peplum...

First of all, I love this outfit. If I didn't have these wide hips, I'd LOVE the ruffled skirt! Second of all-- I love where these pics are taken. My fave place!! ;)

You really suit this colur, I can see why you like it so much. I would have never thought of wearing a peplum dress in that way but it works.

Those reds are gorgeous on you! And who says you have to say goodbye to burgundy just because the season changes? It's like wearing spring pastels in winter - you just have to re-work it. :)

Jenn D said...

I'm a little bummed about spring being so far away, but I can totally get why you are enjoying winter-this color looks great on you!

I like the two different shades of red together - very creative :) And I think it still looks pretty and sort of spring-ish...who says you can't wear those colors still when spring comes around? :)
