camo + burgundy

I've taken my tunic and skinnies formula and applied it to these 2 old pieces. I think I've had them both for nearly 2 yrs never put them together until now. Of course both pieces now have new life. I also love these colors together.

Happy Thursday!

    Love these colors together. Way to go by finding a new combo from existing pieces!

    Great to be able to do this. Another wonderful look.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    Wow! This is really fresh and original! I love it! 

    You are wearing more tunics than in the past, I guess because of being at home and such -- it's a great idea. 

    Do you miss the structure, or do you find it's enough for your at-home fashion persona? 

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    Suz- you are correct I am wearing more tunics. I think it works for my at home style because of the structure in the shoulder and waist (sometimes).  I think it's casual enough for the situations I encounter day-to-day and polished enough for the core of my personal taste.

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    Yes, I was going to add that this one, in particular, has the structure at the shoulder. Also, the leather detailing and scrunched sleeves add a bit of "extra" to the look for sure. 

    I primarily wear knits for my at-home work capsule, at least in the cool weather. (In summer I wear wovens). But I get much more structured and polished when I am out in the world. It's the same core style but a different emphasis. Maybe you are similar?

    These colors look great together!  You look wonderful :)

    Love the formula!  Very stylish MOTG.

  • Meredith replied 5 years ago

    So creative! I love this look and will be trying this color combo myself!

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    Fabulous MOTG style! Love the burgundy with the camo skinnies, especially with the touch of leather trim.

  • thimblelina replied 5 years ago

    Love this! Those two pieces look very of the moment together.

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    Suz - I had to take a moment to think about when I like structure and how I like "being" when I'm not in professional settings. I think structure while being a core style preference is also a way for me to project "professional" and/or "in control". Mood and audience also influence my outfit choices.
    So if I'm feeling "exuberant" in a very professional setting I'm likely to wear a dark pant suit (very structured)  with jewel-toned accents where the same feeling in a party situation would lead me to a favorite color combo, dress, or accessory of the moment. The level of structure is dependent on the level of polish required.

    Great remix :)

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    Very cool tunic, and I love it with the camo skinnies! I'm with you--love this color combo. You have a way of making this at-home "uniform" of yours very chic-looking.

  • Karie replied 5 years ago

    Breathing new life into older pieces, I love it! Are those the Target reversible skinnies? I remember when you first posted them and I immediately hopped in the car and ran over to Target to get a pair. They were sold out of the camo style at my Target :(

  • MsMary replied 5 years ago

    Fantastic!

    But we need a baby picture... ;)

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    Karie - yes these are those reversible jeans ... (you remembered :-D). I can't take complete credit for this color combination. I have a pin where a woman is wearing camo and a burgundy sweater -- she looked like the epitome of fall.

    Firecracker - I am trying very hard not to devolve into stained 10 year old jammies all day everyday. I am reminding myself of my motto "I don't live in a museum"; therefore nothing I own is precious. Initially I was hesitant about wearing complete outfits when all I planned to do was stay home with the baby. However I own nothing that I can't throw in the wash so a bit of drool an other bodily fluids won't ruin anything. Plus it makes me happy to spend some time making myself pretty.

    MsMary - just for you here's my latest favorite baby picture.

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    The headband with your outfit just takes it from extremely good to great. (Little DV also looks perfect with her headband.)

  • Joy replied 5 years ago

    Day, your little girl is already a fashionista. So precious! I love your outfit. Does it work well for nursing (asking since my DIL is looking for ideas)

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    Joy - I have no good outfit recommendations for nursing since I pump exclusively. On some of the mommy blogs I read people were really into the quick release tank combined with v-neck tops.

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    That baby is a true charmer!

    It would be so easy to spend days that are mostly at home in jammies.  I graded math in mine today (at 9:30).  I've got two safeguards:  a good loungewear capsule, and taking time every 2-3 weeks to make some new casual FFBO pairings.

    Love your tunic/legging pairings.  The proportions are flattering and comfortable and the colors are so rich and lovely.
