Years ago I had a pair of burgundy/oxblood/wine colored pants from The Limited.  I wore those things like crazy. But, I almost always wore them with a black top.  I got rid of them when that color went out of style and because they no longer fit.

Funny how things come back around, isn’t it?  When I realized burgundy was going to be one of the trendy colors this fall I went out and bought a burgundy skirt and then decided I need a new pair of burgundy pants.  When I saw these at Target I decided they fit the bill perfectly.  And for less than $30?  Sold!

This time, though, I’m planning to wear them with more than just black.  I have lots of ideas on my Pinterest inspiration board that I’m looking forward to trying.

Are you planning to wear burgundy this fall?

    I’m a big fan of burgundy — I’ve almost always had a burgundy shirt or two that I wear a lot in the fall. I’ve definitely never worn burgundy on my pants, though (at least not since I was a little kid, pre-introduction to jeans). I think I’m still scarred from my childhood of weird colored and/or printed leggings haha.

    Love the animal print & burgundy combination. I am a recent follower and a fellow chi-towner. Never left a comment before 😛 but your clothes really make more sense to me- practical yet on the mark polished!

    Burgundy is one of my favorite colors, I’m always drawn to those darker, more muted shades. (Burgundy, olive, rust, it goes on and on….) I can’t believe these pants are from Target, they look really expensive! I love how you paired the leopard cardigan with the burgundy pants.

      I was hesitant to even try these pants on since pants tend to fit me strangely. But, amazingly, these fit great and look like they should have cost way more than $28! I’m going to have to remember to try Target pants more often.
