Todays look at my Spring style 2012 is all about seeing red. But not full on red, just a hint.
As these photos were taken on a day that I didn’t work, I was able to wear some of my favourite things. Although I can, and do, wear red to work I don’t get to wear blue jeans to work. So todays look is just for me! I often sneak denim into my work looks in the form of skinny jeans but sometimes nothing beats a pair of the old faded blues.
These are a few of my Favourite Things: Yes, they really are some of my favourite things. In fact, if I could wear this look to work I would just about live in it! I am lucky enough that most of it I can, but it’s just not the same without the worn and faded jeans. This pair is a little too big but I wear them because I can’t resist how comfortable they are. Of course I have on a pair of my trusty cowboy boots. I could have worn the red ones but thought that would be too matchy-matchy. I’ve got a red cardigan on, buttoned all the way up and being worn as a shirt with a blazer over top and a leopard print scarf to give the look a little personality. I got the scarf in my gift bag when I attended the Wittner Shoe Runway at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week last month. And right up front is my HUGE red Guess bag that I have been wearing for about 5 or 6 years now. It was about $200, which seemed expensive at the time but considering the fact that I have probably used it at least 1000 times, the cost-per-wear is 20 cents! Bargain!
Hints of Red: I rolled up the sleeves on the blazer which left the sleeves of the cardigan hanging out. So I cuffed the cardigan sleeves up over the blazer to add an extra pop of colour.
Red, Leopard and Bling: I wrapped the scarf back and then around to the front, using the length to tie a loose mens tie effect and then finished that off with an old clip on earring that had been my grandmothers. I have never owned both of the earrings as one went missing before I was born but I like to clip this one on to lapels and scarves when I need just a little bling going on.
Now you have had a good look at the style I would wear every day if I could. probably the truest, core representation of my style.
There will be more red sightings this Spring and summer. Hope you don’t get tired of Seeing Red!
