camel + a pop of sangria

So, there are two fun link-ups happening this week: Heidi and Marissa are hosting another Pantone Color Challenge, plus Andi and Danielle are hosting a blazers theme week. Both sounded like fun, so I’m attempting to participate in both, but I must say, it made outfit planning quite a bit more challenging!


Anyway, for today’s look, I decided to pair a camel blazer with a pop of sangria. I’ve been wanting to wear this skirt for a while, so I’m glad I finally found a way to style it. See? Link-ups do wonders for creativity!



Also, I’d like to point out that I enjoy sangria not only as a color but also as a beverage. I’ve been meaning to make this recipe–perhaps it will make an appearance on the Thanksgiving feast table…

Will you be participating in any link-ups this week?

Linking up for the Pantone Color Challenge and Blazer Week!

  1. OOh, I love this outfit! It might be one of my favorites of yours! Thanks for linking up! I’m sad that I accidentally conflicted with Pantone week. I usually love doing it, but this week will be tricky for me!


  2. Love this! You look really cute, polished and professional! I saw this blazer on another blogger recently and I really like it. I wish that all blazers had a cute print on the inside for when you cuff it! 🙂


  3. Caroline, I absolutely love this look! I know it’s challenging to do two challenges at once, but you’ve made it look effortless. I would wear this in a heartbeat–pinning for future reference! You look wonderful.


  4. I totally agree with Andi – this might be one of my favorite Caroline outfits as well!! That skirt is so pretty, and I LOVE the color of your necklace…and the camel blazer just ties it all together!!


  5. i know what i am wearing to work next week! i grabbed this skirt for $7 and change at target on clearance and this is the perfect inspiration to wear it next week when I am back to work. i absolutely LOVE it with the camel blazer and chunky magenta necklace. can you tell how much i am gushing over here?! this is just the perfect look in my book, caroline! too bad mine will have to feature tights, but you’ve just made me so excited to debut this skirt!
