OOTD - "Bloggers Do It Oxblood Better"

Kristina at PrettyShinySparkly's, latest challenge is "Bloggers Do Oxblood Better." The challenge usually starts with a style board on her blog and then a outfit post of herself sporting the challenge, and is followed by a link-up post which allows other bloggers to join in and show off their style.

Absolutely loving these challenges. It makes me really think about how to incorporate trends into my wardrobe. It also reminds which items are timeless. They also allow me to see other bloggers and how they incorporate the trend. LOVE finding new people to follow through blogs.

Take this blazer, I have owned it for several years now and well it's pretty classic in my opinion. It can be trendy on so many levels - corduroy, oxblood color, leather patches. However the cut and style are both very classic to the blazer. Year in and year out I have found myself giddy with excitement to wear this again for the first time that fall. It is my absolute favorite article of clothing. I can dress it up or down throw it over anything for instant style.

Blazer - Express
Blouse - F21
