Burgundy for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: Combined with Light Blue

Quote of the day: “Clever people master life; the wise illuminate it and create fresh difficulties.” Anonymous

For our third mix in the series of burgundy, I again went with a lighter color to try to create some fun contrast. The first color combination was with pink (here) and then we tried white/ivory (here). The richness of burgundy tend to lend itself well to those of you with silver/grey hair, don’t you think? And the light blues I chose for the three of us are quite different. My light blue is very pastelly, Nancy’s is denim and mom’s is a little brighter.

60’s Burgundy (Blouse): This scarf was a gift from me to Nancy from our trip to Paris a couple years ago. It’s actually grey, but almost looks light blue against the denim jacket.

Thanks to you all! Linking up with Style Stories & #iwillwearwhatilike Linkup

Burgundy vests for those of you who love sleeveless items:

  • Is it ok out of the three of you to have a favorite? Makes me feel bad, but I gotta say I like your styling the best this time Jodie. I love the burgundy with greys. It just works really, really well.

    Thanks for coming by and linking to my Style Stories! Love, Ann

    • Of course, it’s ok to have a favorite….I think it’s only human nature when there are more than one! And the three of us just love doing this (truth of the matter, is I pretty much style all of us, but work within each of our own closets—sometimes I do better than other times (that’s life, right?) Thanks for your observations…it’s nice to have feedback!

    You’re the queen of shoes and jewelry. I love your necklace. (And I love the word “pastelly.” 🙂 )

    • I will admit to loving my shoes…heck, in the new place I actually have more room for shoes! It’s hard to restrain myself when I get such great deals and still have the storage area! Besides they can make an outfit sing!! (that’s called a rationalization—Rob says there will be an intervention soon!!)

  • Burgundy is one of those great neutrals that most people don’t consider. It is one of my favourites as it fits well with my hair colour.

    You’ve shown that well with your series.

    I think it is wonderful how you dressed up your sweatshirt jacket!


    • Thanks Suzanne….I may have to do another series on it as I wore it to Thanksgiving dinner with orange and loved the combo!!
