When Tanya posted about this maroon and cobalt combo, I had an aha moment.  I do have a top whose colour I call "maroon" (I apparently even have a maroon skirt!).  Deep red is somehow a bit harder for me to process because this is the first time I have heard it(!).  This is what I wore today to take DSs for their school uniform shopping.  I finally have that sorted and can breathe in peace!

I am wearing a cobalt tube skirt (old/no brand) with a flowy maroon blouse (old/no brand).  To lighten the outfit a bit, I added my rescued-from-the-donate-pile cap toed ballet flats (Ecoflex).  When these flats die .... it would be a very sad day  I tried to search for an exact replica but I couldn't find one  They complete many of my outfits whenever I am stumped for shoe choice!  My striped bucket bag (local turkish brand) completed the outfit.  Do you think the short skirt makes this outfit more summery although the colors are fall appropriate?  Or do you think it looks seasonally confused?  I usually wear all colors all seasons but wonder what you all think.

Also, do you think this deep red (or maroon in my world) suits my skin tone?  I am on the fence, so any advice would be appreciated.  This is one top that I am not too much in love with (I find it a bit twee for my style now/frills and flowers!) but whenever I wear it someone compliments!  And then I hang on to it!  So what do you think?  Keep or purge?

Thank you as always for your advice and comments! x
