SFF + Concrete Runway

After a long day at work, nothing brightens my day quite like coming home to a care package from one of my favorite online boutiques! Especially when that online boutique just so happens to be Concrete Runway. With the excitement of 5 year old on Christmas morning, I mangled my way into the package to find this gorgeous flared, burgundy skirt!

While burgundy is one of my favorite colors, (maybe because it reminds me of wine) it can prove to be a tricky color to style for spring or summer. For fall, burgundy pairs beautifully with rich jewel tones and/or leopard print, but by no means is burgundy reserved for the fall months.

As you can see, I found that blush and burgundy look absolutely beautiful together.  Once I had that figured out, it was all about finding a fun summer print that blended in with the color palette and VOILA! I’m rocking burgundy for summer!

Thank you Concrete Runway for the loving care package, fun style challenge; and for never letting me down when it comes to shopping for quality, fashion-forward work wear at affordable prices!

Blush, Grey and Leopard

I simply cannot get enough of “Blush” these days and one of my favorite ways to pair this soft, neutral hue is by pairing it with my all-time favorite neutral, LEOPARD!  Yes, leopard is a neutral and if we can’t see eye to eye on that, then we may need to reevaluate this whole relationship.  :)

This A/X leopard print skirt pairs beautifully with shades of blush due to its perfect palette of leopard and grey- which happens to be my second favorite neutral to pair blush with.  Any shade of camel, tan or nude would come in third! I glammed up the look by adding gold details from neck to toe!
