Marsala Midi

 Turtleneck: J.Crew Factory (love this & one of my favorites!) / Skirt: TJ Sewer Collection c/o / Heels: Nordstrom Rack (another great option!) / Purse: Gucci  / Bracelets: HM Willow c/o / Lipstick: Chanel Pirate

I couldn’t have been happier when Pantone announced that the color of the year for 2015 was Marsala. The shade screams elegance, and the hue fits in perfectly and effortlessly during the holiday season. That’s why when I saw this TJ Sewer midi in the “marsala” color I knew it would be a flawless addition to my holiday rotation.

 I kept things simple for this look with a cream color turtleneck, fun heels and a chic cross body. The beauty of midis is they allow you to have a bit more fun and freedom than you would with a typical mini skirt (I mean, do people still even wear those?). I see myself throwing on a dark denim button down and brown booties to take this look past the holiday season.

Have a wonderful week! If you’re spending yours trying to fit in some last minute Christmas shopping between work [like me] and need some inspiration, check out my Gift Guide for the Gals or Gift Guide for the Guys!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I have a huge christmas-red midi that I just adore. They're so pretty for this season! I'm wondering how Marsala will work for Spring/Fall 🙂 Okay, I have to ask…now that im in the market for a new camera (waaahhh!) what camera/lens do you use for blog photos mostly? I'm using this as a perfect opportunity to upgrade. 🙂

      This was one of my first midis, and I am so happy that I have a red one! You're right – it's absolutely perfect for the season (but yeah, I'm kinda wondering the same thing about Marsala translating into springtime)! I'll email you the details about my camera! 🙂
