little miss oxblood

My mom was in town visiting just as the weather turned cold in New York City. Still recovering from Hurricane Sandy, I was excited to get dressed and play downtown. I had lost power for around 6 days from the superstorm.

My mom and I had the best time together. On this particular day, we lunched at Balthazar in SoHo. Its something that she's always wanted to do but just never got around to for years. It was so wonderful having my mom all to myself with no particular plans or obligations. I miss seeing her everyday.

On another note, wearing the color of the season feels so good! Oxblood is so sophisticated and is perfect on any accessory or piece of clothing. It really is a color that I doubt can be used incorrectly. 

Sweater: Express (but gifted from a friend and worn upside down for a slouchy silhouette)
Tights: Kate Spade c/o Gabriel Brothers
Hat & Scarf: H&M
Boots & Bag: Forever 21

Oxblood is perfect and especially on you. When I find something in that color I will wear it and blog about it, because I see a lot of girls name dropping that color and I can't...yet.

Seriously though, great outfit. Love the had and your precious smile!
