fall favourites

Spruced_BugundyPicks_Test1 I had planned this post for early October. I know that so exactly because every year when autumn arrives, I suddenly want to wear burgundy. That was two months ago, but when I came across this picture today I decided to post it anyway. Because I needed a reminder to wear other colours besides black at the moment. Because my favourite buy of the year is in [...]
