I wrote this on my very full flight to St. Louis. Despite the crazy storm and tons and tons of canceled flights, my travel went smoothly without a hitch. Got lucky!
Last week, in light of 2014, I showed you my favorite purchases from the past year. Since I'm traveling in St. Louis this week and was sick in pajamas all last week I have no outfit pics for ya. Soooo, I thought I'd show you remixes of how I've worn my favorite purchases from 2013!
First up, my beloved maroon/burgundy skinny jeans. I wanted a pair this color for a long time, and finally Ariel on Go Chic or Go Home saw it on my Wishlist board and tipped me off to a pair from Target. They looked bright magenta online, but she assured me it was the color I was looking for. Best part? Sale for $9! Thank God for the Go Chic or Go Home community, right?
I love maroon skinny jeans because I think they are a great entry into colored jeans territory. They’re subtler and darker, unlike a bright red or bright yellow, which definitely scream, “I’M WEARING COLORED JEANS!!!” I think maroon is classy too, so you can dress them down or look a little more professional when you need to.
It appears I mostly paired them with black, white, and other neutrals, but I did get a little more creative with the mustard cardigan. That’s one of my favorite outfits!
Do you have a pair of maroon or burgundy pants? Besides neutrals, what other colors could this be paired with? I didn’t create an official link up, but feel free to link to your posts in the comments, whether they’re blog posts or on GCOGH.
