Fall Must Haves::Oxblood + Camo

Any self-respecting girl from the South has probably worn her share of camo.  If you weren't actually hunting squirrels, you were maybe pretending to be interested in hunting to impress your Lambda Chi boyfriend.  Oh, just me?  

This season camo is not just for your dad and your Miller Lite-drinking Uncle Rick.  It's all over street style blogs and all over about every store.  I'm loving it mixed with the color of the season, Oxblood...Wine, Burgundy.  Call it what you will.  Ask any client, and they will probably tell you that I've tried to put them in this color at some point; even boys.  Check out Thomas Rhett at the BMI Awards--oxblood jacket!  It is truly one of my favorites.  It looks great with grey, black, olive green!  And CAMO!  

I've gone ahead and pulled some of my favorite Pinterest images (follow me here) and some great pieces, featuring these two trends.  Complete with quippy commentary of course.  Happy CYBER MONDAY!

Basic cable-knit gets a facelift with camo skinnies.

1.  Tripp NYC Basic Camo Jean, $79, Urban Outfitters.  Not your dad's baggy hunting pants roomy enough to climb a tree stand, ladies.  
2.  The Barnwood Boot, $198, Madwell.  The color of this boot is "blackberry julep", which may be an even better color than oxblood.  This guy would be a great addition to any wardrobe because it can be worn just like you'd wear brown, which is a lot.   
3.  Camo Scarf, $95, All Saints.  All Saints really does have some of the most comfy, luxurious scarves.  Honestly, I do think this camo scarf could go with just about anything you put it with.   
4.  Camouflage Print Blouse, $59.90, Zara.  The sheerness of this blouse makes it perfect for a black pencil skirt and a night out.  And what better way to hide any problem areas than loose-fitting camo.  No one will even see them!
5.  Feathered Knit Cardi, $110, Nasty Gal.  High rise skinnies + messy bun + tank + ankle boots + this AH-MAZING cardi = Street Style to the Max
6.  Pins and Needles Flocked Animal Portrait Sweater, $59, Urban Outfitters.  This would be the cutest sweater to wear to family dinner with your boyfriend's parents.  Then you can put on camo when he's ready to go squirrel hunting and you pretend you want to go.
7.  Vila Tip Collar Camo Jacket, $61.57, ASOS.  This might be the most perfect iteration of camo on this list.  And the anorak look of the jacket is just right for the season.
8.  NARS Lipstick in Trans Siberian, $24,  Mom would be so proud if I wore this color.  Moms don't get the whole sheer lip gloss thing.  "Are you gonna put any makeup on today, sweetie?" 
Oxblood is for lips too!!
