Falling for Maroon

maroon1  maroon2

maroon3  maroon4

I've been thinking about some outfits for fall and back to school, and I've really been loving the color maroon! It reminds me of the warm and cozy feeling of autumn. Since it is still pretty warm in the fall (at least it is where I live), I wanted to find ways to make a "summery" outfit look more fall like, and I ended up with this outfit! It is still cool enough to wear in hot weather, but the maroon skirt makes it look somewhat cozier. So if you want to transition summer outfits into fall outfits, I suggest using darker/ deeper colors that look kind of "warm and cozy" if that makes sense. Try colors like maroon, mustard yellow, brown (be careful, don't get a gross looking brown), deep purple, navy, dark army green, etc. I hope this helped or inspired you! 

OUTFIT DETAILS: Vintage Radio Shirt - Flea Market ($1), Maroon Skirt - Pacsun/ Brandy Melville ($10 with coupon), Black Sunglasses - Aeropostale ($5 on sale), Gold Dangle Earrings - a gift, Coach Sneakers - Ross ($50?)

I absolutely love these tribal pattern shorts. It's easy to put outfits together with these types of shorts because they function as the statement garment and the rest of the clothes and accessories can be kept simple. (What's more simple than a white tee shirt!) These lovely shorts are from Charlotte Russe, and I believe they were on sale for $10. My sunglasses are from Urban Outfitters, and they were originally $16 but I bought them on sale for $10. My necklace is from Kohls and I don't remember the price, but it was definitely under $20. The white tee is from Hollister and I only remember that I bought it for a great price because it was on clearance, then the clearance was 50% off! Lastly, my shoes. I always wear these haha but they are from DSW Shoes.

 Have a fabulous day! Oh and happy August! Let's make this month great!
