My New Neutral + Important Life Discussions

So every season I pick a new favorite color and incorporate it into my wardrobe. This is actually done unintentionally. About halfway through the season I’ll realize that I’ve been wearing a lot of one color that I’ve never worn before. This summer it was mint which pretty much became a neutral for me. Seriously, it goes with everything.

This fall it’s been maroon/burgundy/wine/oxblood/whatever-you-want-to-call-it. I ordered this cardigan from Old Navy at the beginning of October and it has been on repeat ever since. I also order a pair of sneakers and a skirt and in the same color. It’s my new neutral.



In other news, I’m growing my bangs out and they’re at that awkward stage where they hang down in my eyes, but can’t be tucked back behind my ear. So I’ve been applying lots and lots of hairspray and should definitely stay away from anything involving flames (my sister knows that hairspray and candles don’t mix; ask her about it).

Also I’ve been drinking hot chocolate every day since the day after Thanksgiving and can’t get enough of it. It’s my holiday drink. Anyone have a hot chocolate recipe to share?

Thanks for reading!

  1. I feel your pain Alli….I am growing out a short cut that I got when I was having a bad day!lol!! Your hair looks lovely!! Love the maroon or Crimson as we say here in Alabama(Roll Tide!). I saw that this is one of the new Pantone colors so I guess that is why we are seeing it everywhere.


    1. It definitely takes patience to grow your hair out, doesn’t it? =) I don’t know if I can go along with calling my cardigan Alabama colors since I’m a Tennessee fan, but it is a great and popular color!


  2. Your hair looks great – I would have never known you were growing out your bangs 🙂 You also look lovely in the wine color. Great choice for the season!! I ordered a few of those Old Navy cardigans, too, and they are perfect for layering.
