I was chit-chatting with my friend Risa Kostis of RISTYLE Consulting and we both were oozing over the burgundy color popping up everywhere, more formally the Pantone color of 2015: Marsala. She said, “You know, it’s considered a neutral this season…”

Ah ha! It makes total sense. Marsala goes with everything… grays, blacks, denim.. it’s as versatile as a neutral and I’m totally on board with that statement.

Exhibit A is this beautiful flared leather burgundy skirt from Kalloni’s Closet, a fun online boutique based out of Arizona.

Marisa Belle Photography took these pictures right outside the Musical Instrument Museum (MIM) that is not far from my house.
