Fall Trend: Burgundy

MWP_Burgundy_10_2_14skirt // bag // headband // booties // sweater // scarf

We’ve been noticing a pattern recently whenever we’re out shopping.  Burgundy is everywhere.  On mannequins, on racks, on sales associates, on shoppers.  Wine colored clothing is huge this fall!  We’re totally joining in on the trend.  We love how burgundy accessories add a pop of color to a neutral-based outfit, and how full burgundy pieces flatter everyone.  The deep hue is perfect for fall and transitions seamlessly into winter.

How are you wearing burgundy this season?

Boot Season

Boots are back!  We wouldn’t survive the fall without our favorite riding or rain boots.  They’re the perfect finishing touch to every classic fall look, whether they’re paired with leggings, jeans, or a dress.  We’ve been on the hunt for new boots this season since the polar vortex and excessive salt on the streets of Chicago and Milwaukee killed the ones we had last year.  We’re especially loving that two-toned pair from Nordstrom.

October Print

Hello, October!  Our favorite time of the year is finally here.  We’re ready for chunky cable knits, pumpkins, red cups, and boots.  The Midwest is looking especially gorgeous right now… we love how everything changes when the weather gets colder and the leaves start to change colors.

It has us falling in love with fall.

Fighting the Monday Blues

MondayBlues

As much as we try to avoid them, they’re inevitable.  Mondays.  Why does it have to be so hard to leave the weekend behind?  Every Monday we find ourselves thinking ahead to next weekend’s plans.  But when we realize how far away that seems it gets a little depressing.

So instead of dreading Mondays, we’re embracing them.  New week, new beginnings.  A little bit of positivity can’t hurt, right?

Hit the ground running.


 One productive day has the power to change our moods for the rest of the week.  We’re using our Mondays to get ahead so our calendars don’t seem so overwhelming.  Once we knock a few things off our to-do lists, a busy schedule doesn’t seem quite as daunting.

Caffeinate.


 That being said, in order to be productive we need our caffeine.  Mondays are so not the day to deprive yourself of your favorite Starbucks drink in the name of saving calories.  A little boost of energy goes a long way.  Caffeine is the key to our happiness on Mondays. (Only fitting on National Coffee Day!)

Treat yourself.


 We got this advice from one of our coworkers, and it’s been so helpful in getting rid of the Monday blues.  Instead of dreading our days, we plan something fun to look forward to.  Getting back into the swing of things isn’t so bad when you have happy hour or a mani appointment to look forward to.

Dress up.


 We always want to roll out of bed, throw our hair into a top knot, and wear whatever’s hanging at the front of our closets on Mondays.  But we’re trying to stop being so lazy.  Instead of getting ready in a hurry, we take time to plan our outfits.  Rocking our favorite pair of heels or showing off a new outfit always gives us a bit of an edge.

What other tips do you have for fighting the Monday blues?  Share in the comments!
