Burgundy, Plum and Maroon

Today I took a jaunt into central London without Squeak and the pushchair. I could actually take my time looking around stores as opposed to finding bribes of raisons or baby chinos to buy time to go window shopping or research as I like to call it.

Spent several hours just flitting from store to store. A lot of the products and trends I have seen several times before but I did notice a new colour trend poking through the masses of summer brights and neon. Don’t get me run I love the brights as I have never been one to shy away from a strong colour. But today for whatever reason it was the colour ‘burgundy’ that caught my eye.

Burgundy, plum and maroon. I’m sure to a colour specialist there is a difference but to me these words mean the same thing and yes there a memory of school uniform in there.

Burgundy for me will definitely be included in my Autumn Winter wardrobe. But I may kick off with this outfit combination a bit early. It’s a goon transitional colour to take you from Summer to Autumn.  I would wear the following pieces together, with the socks slightly pushed down to bunch them.
