Maroon Love

Sweater: Forever 21, Shorts: H&M (Thrifted), Oxfords: Xhileration, Necklace: Vintage, Watch: Vintage, Lipstick: Revlon-Rum Raison
About a week ago I spent the day in Lemoyne with fellow blogger and friend, Katie from College Girl. We had a great day of vintage and antique shopping and we even stopped at this abandoned puppy chow factory to take some practice shots and outfit shots. I wore one of my favorite color combos, maroon and mustard while Katie sported a new vest. (Let's not talk about the fact that it was 28 degrees out when taking these pictures.) Not a lot of people I know blog or practice photography, so it was fun to spend the day with who shared the same interests. Speaking of friends who blog and do photography, my friend, Derek just started his blog, Vintage Obsession, again so check it out if you get the chance! 
Anyways, one of my favorite things about this outfit, other than the color combination, was the fact that i was able to incorporate my great grandmothers necklace, my moms 90's watch and my oxfords in to it. I love being able to mix in vintage or old fashioned items into my outfits. Lately, I have been feeling a bit more adventurous with my outfits and playing around with color, texture and patterns.

PS: Congrats Peas and Crayons for winning my scarf giveaway!! E-mail me when you get the chance! :) Hopefully, I will have another giveaway coming your way soon!
