BURGUNDY STRIPES AND BYZANTINE NECKLACE

Hello from rainy Los Angeles! I snapped these photos yesterday before the rain really started coming down…hence the gray skies.

I’ve been wearing a lot of burgundy lately. Maybe it all started with the burgundy OTK boots that I received by accident…but I’ve been compelled to shop for a lot of dark reds.

I found this boxy wine and black striped top on sale from Forever 21. Since the material has a bit of a sheen, it could easily be dressed up, but of course I decided to wear it casually.

The top is boxy and cropped, which is not always the most flattering look for me. I layered it over a black high-low tank top to create shape and hide the belly button.

In a recent post, I wore the burgundy version of this BLANKNYC jacket. I loooove this jacket so much. The fit (runs a bit snug) is so flattering and the boxy shoulders give it just the right silhouette. And now the camel color is back in stock, which I might have to pick up! Rated 4.5 stars with over 650 reviews on Nordstrom, this one is a must-have.

I also want to share my new necklace! You may have already seen it on my Instagram. I received this gorgeous chain from one of my favorite jewelers, Ross-Simons (also see the Ross-Simons rings that I’ve been wearing everyday here). I love that the Byzantine design of this chain can look feminine or streetstyle–or in between, which is where I like to be.

My favorite boots. I have them in three colors. Is it bad that I keep buying the same pieces but in different colors?

Thank you so much for stopping by! Also huge thanks to Ross-Simons for helping me add just the right amount of glimmer and bling to my look!

I really do like Burgundy at the moment, such a beautiful warming colour.

Great outfit style, and like your pretty boots also!

What a great casual look my dear Jennifer! I do remember that necklace from instagram and like it a lot, it really gives a great polish to this look! Striped tops is my all time favourite when it comes to casual dressing, as well as these black ankle boots! And now that Chloe Drew bag in red is just perfect! I was thinking of getting a black one (better late than never right? 😉 but the red is so tempting as well!
Thanks for sharing and have a great start to the week darling!
