Pumpkin & Burgundy | Duster & Skort

Although I dred the fact that burgundy and pumpkin are considered fall colors, I can’t deny that they look great together. I love it when colors contrast one another and that’s exactly what this burgundy duster and pumpkin attire (also known as orange) does.  Playing with different shades of orange, I pulled out a burnt orange skort (a style I haven’t worn since I was in Vegas). Ever since childhood, I’ve always appreciated skorts. Because I was an active kid, it came in pretty handy as I wanted to look girly and still be able to play around with friends. As a woman, when you wear a skirt, you’re more careful with how you position your legs opposed to when wearing pants/shorts. A skort is a playful girl’s dream and a woman’s go-to for practicality.

 For some reason, I tend to end up monochroming when I wear burgundy. This orange bodysuit infused the pumpkin into the look effortlessly.befitting-style-oyinkan-wearing-pumpkin-bodysuit-burgundy-duster-thigh-high-boots-1

This duster can’t be found anywhere as my mom purchased it in the 90s. She gave it to me a couple months ago and I was excited as I love vintage styles but I’m not into buying second-hand hand clothing, yet I’m always open to getting any vintage styles from my mom.

Sometimes I love items so much that I either wear them too much or I barely wear it. In the case of these thigh high boots featuring zipper details all over that I fell in love with, I barely wore them. I’ve had these boots for a year now and this is my second time wearing it. My first time was during NYFW this past February. These boots are no longer available from Schutz but I was sure to include other fabulous thigh high boots.

This bag is the same case as the shoes. I’ve worn this bag once even though I’ve had it for a year. I love the all over fringe detail placed on a satin base, making it easy to wear for an evening look.

I chose a silver necklace because of the silver hardware on my shoe and bag. It kept things simple.
