Bold Bordeaux



I have been wanting to put together a monochromatic outfit for a while now - so when I found this wool jacket, I knew it would perfectly match these cropped pants I bought at the beginning of the season.  And since I didn't have a burgundy sweater or top, I decided to break up the rich hue with black, hunter green & a dash of metallics.  Speaking of, how amazing is this art deco necklace?  It's definitely a splurge, but well worth the investment if you're looking for a unique statement piece.  Chloe + Isabel also have some gorgeous affordable styles right now that I love (like this stone braceletthis layering necklace & these sparkling studs) - all under $50!






What I'm wearing:
Mossimo sweater (similar), Forever 21 blazer (here), Mango scarf (similar), H&M pants (similar here or here), Guess pumps (similar here or here), Zara bag (here), c/o Chloe + Isabel necklace (here), Bracelets: Vintage & J. Crew, Target sunnies (similar), Nails: Essie Glamour Purse, Lips: L'Oreal Infallible Mesmerizing Merlot

I love the monochrome! That's a look I have not tried yet, but I love it. I think those gold heels totally make the outfit and I love the pop of hunter green. And don't you love cat eye sunglasses? They are the best shape for eyewear! <3

Lovely outfit! That necklace is, indeed, amazing. I'm all about the Art Deco trend, but I've been unsure about how to pull it off with such a statement piece. I have to say, you nailed it!

This outfit is amazing! The colors scream fall and holidays and sophistication.

It's also lovely to see it's still okay to wear cropped pants in the fall. I just bought a pair and was deciding whether or not to keep them since I wasn't sure if I could wear them now that it's chilly.

Cute! It's almost like a suit, but less stuffy.
