Oxblood and Leopard

I'm not sure if I like the name "oxblood" but I sure do like the color! I don't own much in oxblood yet (yet...), just a cardigan and a skirt, but it's one of the fall trends I'm really looking forward to embracing fully! I've already got my eye on an oxblood bomber jacket, coated jeans and knee-high boots. Oxblood looks good with so much, it's really to be treated as a neutral. Grey, black, camel, navy, cream, hunter, gold and of course, zebra and leopard, all look amazing with the rich wine/burgandy color.

Now, let me just brag on these Jessica Simpson jeggins a second. I bought them last week at my favorite store, TJMaxx, for under $20 and I loved them so much after I spent a very long, comfortable day in them, that I ran back to TJMaxx the next day and bought another "back up" pair. Let's put it this way ~ you're going to see a lot of these jeggins! I'm considering doing a whole blog series on "30 ways to style black jeggins". That way I can wear them everyday for a whole month and no one will look at me strange. I'll just explain it's part of my job. I'm doing research. One thing's for certain, I can't wait to wear them with riding boots and a chunky sweater!

Today I'm linking up with Monday Mingle, Real Girl Glam and Bloggers Do It Better! Have a savvy and stylish day!

I am definitely loving oxblood. Although I prefer to call is burgundy. Oxblood sounds scary :) Either way it's a great color, especially when paired with leopard! Heather
