[OUTFIT] – Bordeaux with a Touch of London

I always try to challenge myself to wear colors during autumn and winter. I have a lot of black, brown and grey, which is nice but can sometimes become a bit boring. Bordeaux (or Oxblood) is one of my favorite colors for fall. In this OOTD I combined my love for fluffy sweaters with a bordeaux pair of pants and added a pop of color through a London themed canvas bag.

I never used to understand the appeal of canvas bags and when I they finally grew on me I wasn’t able to find an affordable one (I refuse to pay 20 euro for a piece of fabric), that is until I visited the Primark this past weekend. While standing in line for the cash registry I fell for an old marketing trick: cute little items displayed on the side of the que that you can just throw in at the last moment. I have a soft spot for London themed stuff and when I saw this London Canvas Bag for only €2,- I had to get it. It’s a great bag for (grocery) shopping!

What I’m Wearing

Fluffy Creme Sweater, €12.-, Primark.
Bordeaux Pants, Only.
Gold Accent Boots, €49.95, Local Boutique in Delft.
Necklace, €5.-, Primark.
London Canvas Bag, €2.-, Primark.

With Love,

    Ik vind de ketting en je kleur lipstick erg mooi. Waar is die van?

      Thanks! De ketting is van Primark, ik denk dat ze die nu nog wel in de collectie hebben. Mijn lipstick is Revlon Colorburst Matte volgens mij in de kleur Sultry, echt heel goed spul!
