Today I'm linking up with Pretty Shiny Sparkly for the Bloggers Do It Better Challenge - oxblood. Confession, I've never used the word 'oxblood' to describe this color.  I usually call it red or burgundy.  I'm a total guy when it comes to color names.

I'm also guest posting over on Schnelle today!  Come check it out and say hi!  It's a Pinterest inspired post :-)

Sweater: Banana Republic  /  Shirt: Kohls  /  Skirt: J Crew  /  Handbag: Gucci {vintage-my moms}     Sunglasses: Chanel  /    Shoes: Aldo 'Lillig'  /  Jewelry: Handmade necklace, J Crew, David Yurman, Stella & Dot


  1. Love this look - your purse really ties it together. I was at a thrift store the other day and they had the same purse for sale. I also picked it up but it was way too damaged.


  2. I love this outfit on you today - you look fabulous! I'm really kicking myself that I did't get this skirt in this color. I agree with you regarding the color of this skirt - I would just call it burgundy too. I love the vintage Gucci too!

  4. Oxblood-intersting colour name, never heard it before, I think I stay with burgundy :-D. you look beautiful maria, that skirt and the colour fits you like a glove.

  5. Loving the combo of polka dots and that skirt - I also didn't know this color existed, and apparently I own it :) Ha we will learn together ;)


  6. Love this look! The top and skirt look great together!

  7. Love these colors on you! Its a very flattering, well put together look. I have that shirt and now i can copy you!

  8. I agree about oxblood, I don't think I've ever used that color name as well. Love the color on you!

  21. I've always called in maroon. My high school colors were maroon and white so I've been wearing this color for years (so fashionable! ha). Of course I love the polka dots :D

    P.S. Today I started a savings account named Chanel and thought of you and your amazing hand bag collection. Come back in 5 years to see what I get ;)

  22. You know I love this look. Maroon AND polka dots? Um, yet. :)


  23. Lovely skirt. The neutral toned polka dot top is very pretty with it.
