Repeat Offender

by Jessica Sturdy on October 3, 2012

You’re probably thinking… “JESSICA! Enough with the jewel tones! And enough with the jewel tone, animal print mixing!”

I’m thinking it, too! But I just can’t stop. I’m addicted to this red/purple color family and really enjoy mixing it with my leopard-print pieces. I’ll work on kicking the addiction, but it doesn’t look promising. Merlot, plum, burgundy, bordeaux, wine, oxblood… whatever you want to call it, it is taking over my closet.

This blazer is amazing and I’m seriously regretting not picking up that tote when I had my gift card with them! Love this look on you – I’m not sick of these colors at all :)

I keep repeating oxblood with my toenail polish (which is weird for me-usually I switch colors quickly!). And I love the color of those shoes, so keep rocking it!

I actually like this trend. It inspires me to try mixing some things up in my closet. I know my clothes I never really wear thank you for it.

I’m wearing wine on my nails.

hey it’s looks really good on you so it’s ok. We all have our preferences :)



Sarah October 3, 2012 at 9:26 am

I also LOVE this combo! You have made a wine/ burgundy fan out of me!


Rachel October 3, 2012 at 9:34 am

Love this! You’re repeating but they’re all different and I love it!!


Lauren October 3, 2012 at 11:26 am

I am also loving jewel tones right now!! I loved how you mixed the burgundy with animal print from the blazer. Such an easy but sophisticated look!!

I have that spike bracelet in silver! LOVEEEEE! I wish it was cold here!

I adore this look! You look gorgeous in your jewel tone/animal print pairing 😉


Samantha @ Sam ipsa loquitur October 3, 2012 at 2:33 pm

When it looks that good, repeat the hell out of it! 😉


Amy October 3, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I love that skull bracelet and the blazer! So stylish!



Kacie's Kloset October 3, 2012 at 4:33 pm

Again, I love your bag and shoes! Your blazer is gorgeous!


Michelle October 3, 2012 at 7:19 pm

Fantastic blazer! I am def. not sick of the jewel tone/animal print yet, it’s a great trend!! :)

Where is your necklace from?!



AJ October 3, 2012 at 8:32 pm

I was actually thinking how fabulous you look in the animal prints and the jewel tones! Love your combinations!!



Franziska October 3, 2012 at 9:21 pm

I love that blazer and the fact that you let it shine by keeping the rest simple. The other pieces are all great, but allow for the blazer to really stand out. Plus those bracelets just work so well together, especially that skull one!


Heather October 3, 2012 at 10:31 pm

Dont worry my followers will soon be saying enough with the leopard…slightly obsessed;)

I caught a little peak of your outfit from your Instagram post and couldn’t wait to see the rest of your outfit photos here on your blog! I think I’m addicted to oxblood too. Thank you for showing so many inspiring ways to wear this very on trend color :) and no need to apologize for animal print over usage – in my book, it’s basically a neutral.

I wouldn’t stop, I am loving this combination!

Jessica, why stopping wearing bordeaux and animal prints when they look absolutely gorgeous on you and they are fall trends? I am so excited that I came across your blog via Lucky, so in love with your sense of style and the variety you offer. Looking forward to more great looks of you as a new follower via bloglovin’ :-)

I am obsessed with bordeaux too, it’s such a rich colour that adds that elegant and delicate touch to each outfit. Love your bag and that blazer, super sophisticated :-)
