Truly, Madly Marsala


When Marsala was announced as the Pantone 2015 Color of the Year, I knew it was a shade I could totally get on board with (remember this post?). It's such a classic shade that really complements my skin tone so I'm grabbing pieces in this color left and right to add to my closet. Enter this Forever 21 peplum top with it's intricate embroidery and button-up back and I'm in heaven!

Now, let's talk accessories. I scored these amazing earrings from Charlotte Russe a couple weeks ago for under $10 and the Express clutch and Jessica Simpson booties were gifted to me at Christmas. Jackpot! Shop my look (and similar items) below!
