Wine, Marsala, Porto, Burgundy, Maroon…this color is so hot right now. No matter what you want to call it, this hue is perfect for fall. I prefer to call it Marsala, mostly because it sounds so fancy. I mean I love neutrals, but it is nice to pop a little color into the wardrobe now and then. If you don’t have this color in your wardrobe yet, you should. Pantone says so.

When I saw this Marsala jumpsuit at The Loft…it spoke to me. It said, “Abby. You need me. “ It also helped that is was on super sale for $20. I love when I find something and I can find not only one, but TWO great reasons to add it to my closet. Done and done.


One of my favorite things about blogging has been coming up with unique ways to style pieces. My style isn’t “super out there”. However, every once in awhile I like to put together looks that are a little more edgy and ultimately unexpected. So, when Tulip (super cute local boutique on the Country Club Plaza) asked me to participate in their Tulip Twist for this month, I was of course super excited, completely flattered and totally up for the challenge. This month’s Tulip Twist was to style this fun mixed media vest from their store. I love a good vest, as you can see from last week’s Transition your Dress with a Vest. I got right to work. First, I paired with some cute sweaters…and it looked cute, but I wanted to do something more fun. Enter new Marsala jumpsuit paired with new mixed media vest to demonstrate: how dress up this vest and ultimately be “vest dressed”.



Hope everyone has a great weekend ahead! If you have a minute to pop over to Tulip’s Facebook page to vote for me I would #loveyouforever.


Until next Friday…
