When I was in NYC last week, I couldn’t help but do some shopping. After all, it’s basically a crime to spend time in that city as a self-deemed shopaholic and not shop!
On one of my days away, I spent several hours wandering around SOHO. The shopping is obviously great there, but it’s also such a cool neighbourhood to be in. When I’m in the area, I love wandering the streets, spending time in hipster coffee shops and window shopping at some of the gorgeous high end boutiques. Since the shopping in the area isn’t all high end, I was able to come back with some goodies. I had a lot of fun shopping at Madewell, especially since it’s a store that I don’t often get to visit in person.
The thing I noticed afterwards is that most of what I bought is black, grey, or navy. Lately, I’m just drawn to these more neutral colours, and it’s been pretty evident in what I’ve been pinning.
There are days that I like to spice things up with rich, fall hues, such as burgundy. That’s why, like last year, I’ve been wearing this cardigan a lot.
It’s basically the perfect cardigan. It’s cozy, warm, has pockets…and it’s burgundy.
What I’m Wearing:
Cardigan – Aritzia (Similar)
T-shirt – Alternative Apparel (Same)
Jeans – Joe’s Jeans (Similar)
Purse – Olivia + Joy via Hudson’s Bay (Same)
Scarf – Gap (Same)
Boots – Franco Sarto via Marshall’s (Similar)
What sorts of colours are you wearing a lot of this fall?
I love SoHo! It’s such a perfect place to shop. You look fabulous and I love oxblood – beautiful for fall.
Tell me about it! Almost too good 🙂
I love burgundy! your look is great!

What a great burgundy sweater! It’s a great color on you! I am a bit in love with these leopard booties too! I am envious of the nice day it looks like you had! 🙂
Thanks – I just love burgundy so much lately. It was a really nice day when I took these photos…but not so much when I was in NYC unfortunately. Oh well!
I love those boots! The leopard print is so fun and subtle. Also, great sweater. Burgundy is always a beautiful colour choice!
Thank you! I loved that it was just a bit of an accent on these booties 🙂
Oooh, I was looking at a very similar cardigan the other day! I love this colors and pattern scheme. Beautiful layering in the outfit, overall!
Thanks – I really love layering, especially at this time of year!
Such a cute look, love the shoes and cardi!

Aw, thanks! 🙂
Ah, this is the PERFECT fall outfit! I need a sweater exactly like this. Also, forget NYC. Come to California 🙂
HAHA oh, I would love to go to California! It’s definitely on my list of places to visit, believe me…
I really love that cardigan! Such a gorgeous color.
Hmmm….I’ve been wearing lots of earth tones, and dark red. Your jumper looks soooo warm!
Dark red is a really nice, rich tone to wear these days. Love it!
Crazy jealous about your trip to NYC!! Love that sweater!
Aw, hopefully you can plan a trip at some point soon!

Oh, that cardigan is so pretty, and I LOVE your boots! The little pop of pattern is great. I’ve been really drawn to black, orange, red, and yellow this season; I have never been a good seasonal dresser, but this year I’ve been focusing more on actual fall colors, and it’s made me be more creative.
I love NYC and Madewell is one of my go-to stores for cool tees, sweaters, and sweatshirts.Gray is definitely one of my faves for fall and winter but I am loving your beautiful burgundy cardigan. It looks great with your scarf and cute booties.

It really would be a crime NOT to shop while visiting NY, that’s half the fun of being on vacation, for me anyway 😉 Love the burgundy cardigan – it looks so cute paired with those booties and pink scarf!
