I remember being hesitant to wear red. I was felt like it wasn’t “my” color and that I would just stick out more. I loved red as color, because it always added the perfect pop color when decorating. But not so much on my skin. Luckily, I learned a few years ago that Red is definitely my color and I have been fortunate enough to have a red series yearly. In 2015 my red series was titled “Shades of Red,” where a featured a banging jumpsuit, faux fur and plaid, and some wide legged pants. In 2016 I was fortunate enough to collab with Kareem of Big Bella Donna to bring you all the “Colors of Love” series where I featured a lace full skirt, a wine colored cardigan, a red peplum dress, and a lace bodycon.
It’s clear to say that my February’s are made for red! This month I will be sharing four of my favorite red items at the moment. Whether you are going on a date with bae or dinner with the girls these outfits will give you a little inspiration on how to rock those last Winter pieces before the weather break.
First up are these booties. Now I was a little hesitant about these red booties because they looked super bright online and I knew I was going to need a size 10. I cannot lie when I pulled the booties out of the box I was so relieved and they are super cute on my feet. They are wide width so they are comfy on my ankle, which is an extra plus. Now let’s talk about this maxi dress. I am in love from the print all the way down to the rounded neck. It zips up the back, but since I sized up I simple throw it over my head, don’t judge me. I added my favorite denim jacket to complete this look.
Style Notes: These booties are wide feet approved, I am wearing my normal size 10. I sized up to an 18 in my maxi dress. My denim jacket is a size 16.
