Trying Something New: Blush and Burgundy

January 11, 2016

Today I am glad to have my good blogging friend Becky of bybmg blog as my guest poster and I must say I LOVE her out of comfort zone outfit here and how she made it work (not to mention affordable). Check it out below and don’t forget to leave a comment or visit her blog and say “hi” thanks Becky for being here today!


Hi, I’m Becky, and I blog over at bybmg. I’m totally outnumbered in my house with my husband, Russ, and our three boys. I try to stay fashionable and creative while keeping up with them and teaching at our local middle school. 
I would love to connect with you on my blogInstagramPinterestTwitter, and Facebook!

Thanks so much, Rachel, for allowing me to guest post today! 


Being in the fashion blogger world, it’s always so fun to see what combinations people come up with for outfits. Blush and burgundy is a combination that intrigued me, but I wasn’t sure where to start. I own two burgundy cardigans, but that’s about it.


Then, I was gifted with a beautiful burgundy scarf from the fall scarf exchange!
Then comes the blush. I really didn’t have much of that either. I was reorganizing our store room, however, and stumbled upon a tub of pre-pregnancy clothes! Victory, a blush sweater I forgot I had!
The scarf and sweater together felt like they were lacking a little something, so to up the pretty factor I added a long necklace under my scarf (another style I wasn’t sure I loved, but I gave it a whirl anyway) and my trusty sparkly bracelet.


The result, this fun look that stretched me a little out of my comfort zone, perfect for a fun day out and about shopping or attending holiday events without feeling too dressy. I might have to bring this look or a similar one out again for Valentine’s Day.

What do you think?

Since what I’m wearing was purchased a while ago, here are some similar pieces:

    I love everything about this outfit! Sooo cute! I’m wishing I would’ve bought booties instead of my taller boots 🙁 I may still splurge and hope for a longer winter down here

      If you have amazon, check there. I found this black pair for about $20!

      Thanks! I was thrilled I’d stowed it away!

    You picked such a gorgeous color palette. The good people at Pantone are probably psyched about your sweater! So trendy!

      I totally agree. Blush is such a fun color. I bet we’ll see a ton of it this year!

    She looks great. I love burgundy and blush. Her jewelry is so pretty. In my current post I am wearing a very similar bracelet and a few posts ago I wore a similar long crystal necklace. Are you going on vacation, Rachel?
