bright red pants & a new leather tote {workwear wednesday}

Sometimes, bright red is scary. Sometimes bright pants are scary. Put them together and you’ve got yourself a recipe for disaster  fun. Until recently, I was a little apprehensive of putting the brightest color in my outfit anywhere near my bottom.

Fast forward a couple of years, and seeing other bloggers pull them off (Justine has a great pair of red pants) plus gaining a bit more self-confidence, and I’m able to rock my bright red skinny cords with aplomb.

Here, I pair them with a feminine blouse and cardigan in more mellow blue hues. What do you think of bright red pants? Yes or no thanks?

Annnnnd of course I gave myself a little early holiday gift of *yet another* leather purse, this time a beautiful brown leather tote.

beautiful burgundy {workwear wednesday}

Oxblood, maroon, burgundy, dark red, etc. They’re all different names for similar hues that have captured my attention this season. So much so that I have two shirts in almost the exact same color. Here’s one of them!express portofino shirt very berry, madewell skinny jeans, franco sarto booties express portofino shirt very berry, madewell skinny jeans, franco sarto booties
Do you like burgundy? What colors would you wear it with? I think it would be fun to play around with burgundy + neon.
