Burgundy Pilgrim


I feel today's look would be very appropriate for a Thanksgiving dinner. It is after all loosely inspired by traditional pilgrim clothing. Sometimes it can be hard to wear a black and white garment and match it with other colours. Once you get passed that initial block, you realize that black and white go with everything! Today, I paired my dress with a beige cardigan, a gold belt and burgundy tights! Why not? This combination really showed my dress in a new light. The outside look was my trench coat with my burgundy floppy hat to pick up on the shade of the tights. Another, more subtle, trick I used to tie in the burgundy to the outfit was to wear a very dark berry lipstick. This small touch has a big impact. Yes, I went there. Now everybody, go match your lipstick to your outfit!
