Red + Gray

striped t: from my mom (target), cardigan: target, scarf: from my mom (h&m), red jeans: Christmas gift from in-laws (f21), black wedges: forever young shoes, earrings: gift from Philip (tiffany’s)
Some days when I wake up, an outfit just comes to me. Most of the time, I rummage through my closet for many minutes, trying on different tops, holding up several pieces together, and then eventually throwing them all on the floor in frustration. It’s times like these that I run straight to the computer and open my Pinterest boards as fast as my slow internet will let me. And then I pat myself on the back for having a “Dressing Myself” board, cause it saves me many a bad outfit days. 
Today it was Veronica P from Bittersweet Colours that came to the rescue. Red and gray. Perfect. She rocked it a million times better than I did, but she was gallivanting around New York City — I was sitting at home playing garbage trucks with Peanut. So I’ll give myself a few bonus points.
Happy Friday!


  1. Love this combination! Maybe I'll be brave and get some red jeans.

    I Loves it! And I loved your last post, all my married life has been spent living next to some ghetto crazies!

  3. You are so beautiful and I LOVE your outfit!

  4. I love your red pants! And that is exactly how I would wear them… with a neutral top : )

  5. P.S. I'm starting a new series on my blog.. will you consider joining me?

  6. Monica says:

    Love this combo! You inspire me to actually try. Fashion doesn't come easily to me, but I'm more motivated whenever I see what you come up with!

  7. I like your outfit better. also– how does that girl get someone to take pictures of her all day?! New York is hard enough to get a picture with only one person in it. And I doubt she sets up a tripod. Can I get a photographer to follow me around all day? It'd give me a TON more motivation to get ready in the morning. πŸ™‚ love the top.. I'm still working on being bold enough for red jeans. πŸ™‚

    I really love all the bits and pieces of stripes peeking through. And the red jeans- I die!

  9. This is such a great look! I love red and gray together…your hair looks awesome, too! =)

    I love all the different grays you got going on up top form the shirt to the cardi to the scarf. Also those red pants are amazing on you!

  14. I love the red and grey combo πŸ™‚ I kind of gave up on Pinterest when I couldn't work out how to use it (I'm kind of lazy!) but you have given me inspiration to try it once more πŸ™‚
