Red, Red Wine

This has got to be one of my all time favorite color combinations. Burgundy & red. So bold, so delicious and just so pretty.

I fell in love with this combo many many, years ago on a trip to Milan. I walked into a Prada store and there it was, hitting me smack dab in the face. I was smitten at first sight. I purchased a pair of red & burgundy kitten heel slingbacks that day about 10 years ago and I still wear them to this day.

I recreate this combo all the time in all different ways. My nails...I'll wear both colors at the same time. Apparel...burgundy skirt, red shirt. Wine clutch, red pumps. I've done it all. Especially this time of year. There's something about fall that makes me want to mix these bold, lush colors together.

Think I know what I'll be wearing today :) How bout you all? Are you loving this combo as much as I am?

Enjoy the day, lovelies!

xoxo

I would never think to combine these to colors but it is striking. Hmmm... I don't own a lot of red maybe I need to change that. Now that song Red Red Wine is stuck in my head! xo

I'm not a huge burgundy lover but perhaps I'm going to start thinking of it as wine and mixing it with red because holy moley...it's gorgeous together!! I seriously would never have thought of the two but I'm in love!!

It's a fabulous combo for fall. I must admit that I don't have this combo "currently" in my closet. It's a must add to any gal's fall wardrobe.
