I rust my case

Rust might be one of more underrated colors, but fall is prime rust wearing season, and I couldn't help myself when I spied this top the other week.

Even though black and orange might come off as a bit too "Halloween", rust can play nice with my black velvet blazer (yep, the velvet has come out), and leopard seems like an obvious choice to tie the two together.

See fall, this is me, trying. With velvet, scarfs, open toed suede shoes, and non-stop complaints about how cold I am.

I rust my case rusty rusty rusty rusty
Check it, I actually managed to take a good photo of my shoes. I have the hardest time with foot wear photographs!

You don't get to complain about being cold when you look that good!

First shot is great. The color of the bricks really plays well with the outfit. P.S. I switched back to old blogger and was able to switch word verification off. Let me know if it worked!

I never get good photos of my shoes, either. Rust is such a pretty color. I like it with the purple shoes a lot. It's also a color combination I never would have thought of.

Oh hey, you have a black velvet blazer, too? Maybe we should have black velvet blazer day.

Melina said...

I am seriously loving the the combination of fall textures in this outfit! The rust, the leopard, the dark wash jeans, the velvet blazer (which just sky rocketed to the top of my wish list)and those fab deep purple heels... I pretty much think this embodies everything I love about fall.

Sorry.. I totally just went fangirl up in here! :)

Okay, this might be one of the better titles I've seen in a while. And I am so with you on the rust - such a great shade and it looks amazing with your hair color!

Leopard is always my go-to when I wear orange and black too. I wonder why that is. I don't know, but it looks awesome, so let's keep it up.

I am doing okay with the fall thus far. Hardly any complaints about the cold, although that might change as I think it's supposed to snow later on in the week...

Rebecca said...

This makes me want to get out my velvet blazer. It is velvet weather, for sure.
