Pairing Burgundy + Pink

Pairing Burgundy + Pink

Hi friends, there’s been so much fun stuff going on my life, and I can’t wait to share it all with you! If you follow me on Instagram @NehaBeauty, then you know I got married in an Indian-Hindu ceremony back in May, and then we just had our American ceremony at the end of June. It’s been a whirlwind to say the least!

Summer is in full swing in Seattle, and it’s so lovely. It took so long to get here too, so many months of gray clouds, and so now, I can barely handle all the sunshine, I need new sunglasses! I am started to feel that summer shopping bug coming on, and my wardrobe seriously needs a refresh. I am definitely getting prepared for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale coming up, so stay tuned for some tips and favorite picks.

In the meantime, I am having fun pairing unexpected colors together. I would normally consider burgundy a color only for Fall and Winter, but just to break my own rules, I threw a light pink tee underneath. And amazingly, it kind of worked! Instead of looking like a deep dark color, this burgundy Topshop vest now seems more like a fun cherry tone for spring.

I love the length of this vest because it gives me a lot of coverage and I can cinch in the waist by tying the belt. This is great for a curvy or more hourglass figure, because it gives me a smooth line, sort of like a dress would, but it’s still comfortable and adjustable.

With such a bold color, I stuck to my usual everyday makeup routine (full video tutorial here!) and added a richer lip color to brighten up my makeup.

What are some fun and unexpected color combinations you have tried? I am excited to play with color a lot more this summer. I have way too many neutrals and I’m ready to mix it up! Hope you’re having a beautiful start to your summer!
