It’s no secret that I’ve been obsessing over burgundy this fall. Just take a look at my instagram feed lately, or my color crush from last week. It’s official – we’ve got a repeat offender on our hands, and not just with the color. There’s this bag … a very pretty bag … I think I’m in love.
I picked up this lovely handbag during Shopbop‘s sale earlier this month. It arrived on my doorstep and into my welcoming arms five days ago. Since then, it’s been spotted all over Manhattan – at my office in Midtown, at my hair salon in the East Village, being toted around near Time Square. I’m even wearing it in tomorrow’s post too…
But I’m not the least bit ashamed. We hit “replay” on our black, white, and grey looks day after day, why can’t burgundy be part of the mix too? Treat it like a neutral and it can be.
My Sunday afternoon was spent running errands, getting my hair done (notice the new color??), brunching, and doing a little shopping. I wanted a look that was slouchy and comfortable, yet still chic and put together. I chose to pair my oxblood (shocker!!) sweater and fluffy fur vest with my distressed skinnies and a sleek bootie. Naturally, the bag came too.
In fall and winter – when there’s a tendency to load up on layers – it’s important to at least highlight some of your shape if you’re hiding the rest. Since my sweater and vest were a bit baggier and over-sized, I balanced the look out with a slim cut jean and a feminine boot.
I guarantee this won’t be the last you see of this color or bag. Hell, I’ve already told you you’ll see the bag again tomorrow… If you’ve been following along, you probably recognized these jeans from last week too. Whoops! Do you have any repeat offenders in your closet right now? How are you rationalizing their overuse?
