#OOTD: Burgundy is a Lifestyle + Goodbye 2016


Hey there! I hope you had amazing Christmas and/or Holiday with your loved ones. Days off are always welcomed and so is family time, so let’s embrace the season! If you know me, you know I rock burgundy quite often. In today’s #OOTD, I’m wearing three shades of burgundy (the third is my lipstick!) and I love how they all look against each other. Burgundy is great for fall and winter, whether it’s “in season” or not, who cares! If a color looks great on your skin tone, wear it, forget what’s “in” and do you.


Anyways, another obsession of mine in this outfit is the blouse. It’s a bodysuit and I’ve been buying so many lately. They’re great for skirts, pants, and anything where you want to keep your shirt effortlessly tucked in all day long.

My bottoms are a flowy, wide-leg trouser from Simons, I also have a black pair from Guess that are even wider legged, and the striped ones in the post from this past summer. The style looks great for any semi-formal/formal occasion as long as it’s not a denim or linen material. I found these burgundy ones at Simons on Boxing Day… they were originally $265 and I got them for $19.99. Yup, 20 bucks. I’ll be writing a post on how to shop smart year-round very soon because I’ve been getting many questions about my shopping habits and I really want to share some tips, especially with this economy (shout out to my fellow Albertans).


Speaking of the economy… let’s say goodbye to 2016! This will be my last post until the new year and although 2016 wasn’t the greatest year for many reasons for a lot of people, I’m still thankful for all the positive things that happened this year, especially starting my jewelry line, Jewel Sofia Design. Thank you to everyone: friends, family, and strangers, that bought pieces and supported local. I plan to refine and keep creating my jewelry in the new year. Thank you for checking out my blog today and I wish you a very happy new year! Please party responsibly, don’t drink and drive,and have fun! Full outfit and makeup details at the bottom! 🙂
