Burgundy and Navy Blue

You know I must be a bit tired when I can't manage to think of an even mildly clever or cute title for a post, simply listing colors is the best I've got today! It's Thursday, so I'm ready for bed and I haven't even had dinner yet :)

Do I wish I could have one of these Emmy Design Sweden cardigans in every color? Yes. Sadly, that's just not gonna happen, so I have to wear my "fig" colored version as much as I can. This time I paired the cozy wool cardigan with an equally warm wool skirt in navy blue. The warm brown accessories were selected mainly so I could wear this fantastic and huge acorn brooch from Luxulite! Still speaking of colors, my dark purple hair isn't looking very purple here is it? Don't worry, I have since had it re-done in a bit brighter hue, you'll all be seeing that soon I promise! It is harder to match with things than my old usual shade of dark brown, but it is also just more fun so I'll take the extra challenge when styling outfits for now.

I just can't believe it's November already, let alone that Thanksgiving is next week! I should have planned ahead a bit better and saved up some extra money for Black Friday sale shopping but I'm afraid a recent splurge (and I mean splurge *cough* Remix shoes...*cough*) I doubt I'll be taking advantage of the sales at all. Unless Collectif have a crazy sale on coats...because I could be tempted there perhaps. I need to be sewing instead of shopping anyways!

Cardigan: Emmy Design
Skirt: Made by me

    1. Thank you! I love Luxulite brooches, they make amazing stuff!

  2. The colours of your brooch are perfect with the shoes and handbag and that cardigan is gorgeous.
    I hear what you are saying about coats. We just had our big semi-annual Vintage Clothing show and sale near where I live and since it was my birthday I scored a stunning cashmere coat and a lovely felt hat with a feather to match. Could not resist. And like you....yes, I should be sewing but do not seem to be able to make myself do it just now.

    1. Thank you Melanie! Sounds like you found a wonderful set out in the wild. I can't believe how low my sewing motivation has dipped the past few months, hopefully it comes back soon!

  3. Very cute! I love the little acorn brooch, and the cardigan and skirt look really nice together. And nothing wrong with splurging on something that you really love instead of buying something just because it's on sale - I honestly end up not loving most of my Black Friday purchases, if I'm honest.

    1. Thank you Jessica! That is a Black Friday Risk I suppose, though I do wish I had saved a bit extra for some things from Vivien of Holloway...Next year perhaps!

  4. The color of this sweater is so wonderful!

    And yay! Re-Mix Shoes! They are my absolute favorite! Although I have yet to get a pair of American Duchess yet.


    1. Thank you Janey! I like that this color is called "fig", I find that rather cute for some reason!
