Bohemian, Euro-Urban.

Happy Friday the 13th Everyone, or Friday before Valentine's Day! Got anything planned this weekend for Love Day?

So, I have expressed my love for Marsala - Color of the year, several times and even mentioned it on this wish-list post earlier this month. I wanted a Marsala or Burgundy piece in all of those items I listed in that post, including a pair of Leggings. Well, I purchased my Leggings last week and I proceeded on wearing them the next day (lol), which is the Outfit you see here. Between the Camel Panama Hat, the Blanket Scarf and Toggle Coat, this Outfit has both a Bohemian and an Euro-Urban vibe to it. It is also a little Equestrian. Notice the side, Faux Leather detail on the bottom part of those Leggings? Love that detail. The Blue+Red Plaid Shirt picks up the Colors of the Leggings, Coat and Wedge Booties. The Long, Camel Cardigan mixes+matches the Hat. And I added another Plaid element via the Cozy Scarf. I accessorized with some Berry Lipgloss, Gold Chanel-logo Studs and a Red Beaded Necklace. I know it is a lot of Layers and several Colors but they worked together. It was cold that day guys. Speaking of Marsala or Burgundy it is a great alternative to Red for Valentine's weekend. This outfit makes me think of my fellow European Blogging Buddy, Angela who blogs from Italy. She wears similar Outfits to this one often, looking so effortlessly put-together in these Layered, Casual Outfits.
Camel, Linen/Cotton Blend, Belted, Open Cardigan: Victoria's Secret (similar by Old Navy, best deal), (similar w/ hoodie, great deal, love this), (gorgeous draped option by Asos, on sale, love this).
Burgundy, Equestrian-Style Leggings w/ Faux Leather Detail off the side of each leg: Penti (New)

Below is another way I have worn this Open, Camel Cardigan, also with lots of layers, a scarf and a hat. Which outfit do you like more? Today's or the one below?
