Inspirational Monday: Very Berry Good


Very Berry



3.1 Phillip Lim twill shirt / Burberry / IRO jeans, $270 / TIBI vinyl skirting / H&M high heel shoes, $48 / 3.1 Phillip Lim zip bag / Beanie hat, $160 / Essie nail color

If I didn't put myself on a spending diet I'm pretty sure I would wind-up spending money on various shades of burgundy and berry clothing. I'm completely obessed with these colors....and mixing the two together is perfection. Since I can't spend a lot of money on new clothing (damn saving for a wedding) I'm left with pulling together pieces that I have already hanging in my closet mixed with new inexpensive accessories-- okay one accessory that I picked up while birthday shopping for my mom.
For Thanksgiving I played around with berry tones and burgundy pieces. I mean who doesn't want to match the cranberry sauce on the table?

  5. Despite the fact the majority of my wardrobe is black, I'm getting obsessed with burgundy too! I just recently brought myself a huge chunky scarf in that colour, so it's nice to see how you've styled your one here! I love the pants too & it looks so good paired with the whites & creams!
