OOTD: Oxblood & Leopard

Let me just start  by saying that in my world, the stars were perfectly aligned today!
This outfit was something I had in my head, but there was a little problem - I didn't have the leggings or the blouse. I figured oxblood is everywhere and so are leather/liquid leggings so this should be an easy task, right? Wrong! It seemed like every place I went to was out of these leggings and it every single store I went to, had everything in oxblood, EXCEPT a blouse! I knew exactly what I wanted and I wanted nothing else. After searching for days (literally!), I just gave up hope. Then 2 days ago, I was on a random shopping trick - not even looking for any of these items - and I found both! I was SO excited!

Such an ordeal for an outfit .... but you guys know how it is, right? So, I finally had the outfit and I was so excited! And then I received the ring and clutch from 6pm, just in time! Also, I suck at making sock buns but this one looks moderately decent so I was super happy about that!

Over the years, Oxblood has changed names many times - it's been called Burgundy, Maroon, Wine, Bordeaux .... and who knows what else! What hasn't changed is my love for this color - it's such a rich color and one that works on .... well, everyone! Are you as obsessed with this color, as I am? How will you be rockin' Oxblood this season?
