A Little Late

oxblood blazer

Perhaps I am a little late on this trend… oxblood, burgundy, maroon, whatever you prefer to call it. But I recently thrifted this burgundy blazer and have been obsessed with it ever since. It has been pretty cold here the past couple days and if you couldn’t tell by my fake happy expression in these photos… I am SO ready for spring.

Happy thoughts… happy thoughts…

Also didn’t this title make you think of Jojo’s song? It’s okay, go ahead, you know you want to!

    I love the blazer! It’s a fantastic color and it goes wonderfully with the gray shirt and skirt! And I love that Jojo song, I have no shame! Oh and yes – where is spring??

    Pretty! Has anyone ever told you that you have PERFECT eyebrows? I have eyebrow envy! :)

      Awww thanks Rachel! That’s so sweet! I have been trying to “perfect” them for years… I am happy with them these days :) But I use filler to make them look this way! (actually right now I use my Urban Decay Naked Palette) cause it is awesome at everything 😉

    The burgundy is so pretty! I can’t stand to call it oxblood, it sounds scary :) It’s been so cold that I can’t even bear to wear skirts. You go girl! Heather

    It’s a beautiful colour that I cant wait to wear again in the fall/winter and maybe even cooperate in my spring looks. That colour flatters your skin tone and makes your beautiful blue eyes pop Rachel :-)
