color love // burgundy

Truth be told, this was a pretty difficult post for me to create. I'm not a fan of red, at all. It's the color of my alma mater's biggest rival and as a huge college football fan, I just can't bring myself to even consider any color that resembles Sooner red. Oxblood, burgundy, maroon....call it what you will...it's really just red masquerading as a deep Fall color. Don't you think? However, all that being said, I'm starting to come around (just a bit) to this rich tone. I will admit, it is a lovely warm color for Fall. And it happens to be one of the biggest colors of the season, so in the name of fashion....let's proceed! ;)



Here's my dream outfit with just a pop of burgundy. 
Little by little....


here's to a weekend filled with football, family & hopefully cooler temps!
hope it's fabulous,

And for those of you who want to add some burgundy to your own closet, these are a few of my picks:

I totally know how you feel, Mae! I'm a diehard Uni of WA Huskies fan (purple & gold) and our archenemies are red and gray... grrr...

That being said, this is a gorgeous color selection that may help me overcome my "seeing red"! Thanks for posting!!!
