Bright Pink & Burgundy

by Jessica Sturdy on November 1, 2012

Ever since I saw fuchsia and burgundy being mixed in the J.Crew windows, I knew I would be sporting the bright & dark color combination this fall!

I wore this outfit last Saturday for an afternoon wandering around Bryant Park. The Holiday Shops are up already, can you believe it?! The best part? DOUGH. So, so good!

Thank you for snapping these pictures, Rose. :)

Obsessed with these flats! Bows and glossy oxblood make for one perfect pair.

Thank you! I couldn’t say no when I found them! They are pretty much perfect 😉

VERY cute!! I want that blazer. :)


Jessica November 1, 2012 at 10:47 am

Thanks!! It’s a bit on the pricey side, but when I figured out the CPW (cost per wear), it’s definitely worth it! This is my second fall/winter season wearing it. Goes with everything!

This look is very J. Crew and I love the pink and burgundy together. And the shoes are so pretty! Shoe Envy!!



Jessica November 1, 2012 at 10:49 am

Thanks Vanessa! I definitely took some notes from J.Crew on this one :)

great color combo!


Jessica November 1, 2012 at 10:49 am

Thanks Rachelle! I love the unexpected-ness. It’s a different take on the red+pink combo!


Elizabeth November 1, 2012 at 10:41 am

Love this combo – so unique! I just spent most of my morning looking back through all of your Fall/Winter archives for inspiration :)


Jessica November 1, 2012 at 10:48 am

Aww so sweet of you! Thanks :)

Aaaah, super cute!! Burgundy cords are def on my fall/winter wardrobe list. Love the combo, too!


Jessica November 1, 2012 at 10:45 am

Thank you! They have been on my list for a while, too. I loved this pair of Banana Republic cords, but didn’t want to pay full price so I stalked them daily until I found a coupon… 30% off! :)

Ooohhh I love this color combo – my favourite for this season! You look great :)

LOVE the color combo, thats one I haven’t seen yet this Fall and it looks great. That’s awesome that the Holiday Shops are already up! I’m planning a trip back home to Chicago to check out all of the Christmas lights/trees/windows and the ChristkindlMarket in early December :), can’t wait!!

Love this outfit but love, love, love your shoes!! I read your post on Sandy, so crazy, hope you get to go home soon! My brother lives on the UES and he was one of the lucky ones that didn’t lose power at all…I’d offer up his place but I’m guessing bunking up with 4 guys is not high on your list of options 😉 Thinking of you in Chicago!


Alyssa November 1, 2012 at 6:01 pm

I love this outfit, great color combo. I might have to try to recreate this outfit. Your blog is great!


Minela November 1, 2012 at 8:10 pm

I have to commend you on the ‘Shop this Post’ bar, that’s very clever! Love this combo too! <3



AJ November 1, 2012 at 8:58 pm

I’m pretty sure that every detail of this outfit is FABULOUS! Love those flats, and the pink and burgundy is a great combo. I love my J.Crew polka dot scarf with that color combo!



Amy November 1, 2012 at 10:33 pm

Love this look! Hope everything is okay for you in NYC!



Christine November 1, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Love this! I may be stealing this color combo idea :) And I love those ShoeMint flats! Too bad they’re already sold out in my size.


Melissa November 2, 2012 at 7:32 pm

Absolutely adore those maroon flats!
