Blouse: LOFT (40% off) // Cardigan: LOFT (40% off) (Similar for only $24)
Jeans: 7 For All Mankind (Similar here) // Pumps: Nine West (On Sale - $40!)
Lipstick: NARS (Manhunt) // Lip Liner: NARS (Jungle Red)
Necklace (Tassel): The Limited (Similar here) //  Necklace: Kate Spade
Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs // Watch: Michael Kors

One of my favorite colors is this fireball red.  I do not like pattern prints for the most part (other than the occasional leopard or animal print), but I do like to wear bold colors.  Red definitely stands-out.  I got this red blouse from LOFT. It is one of their utility blouses.  They have made this style of utility blouse for the last couple of seasons, and I have picked up different colors.  I have bought all of them on sale. (LOFT offers great sales - so be patient and it grab it when it's 40% off.)  A few good things about it are that it is washable (and not dry clean only) and it is perfect for all seasons.  In the cooler temps, layer it under sweaters - both crew and cards -  and when it is warmer I wear it by itself.  Also, it has the roll-up sleeves with the button tab, so you can wear it 3/4 length.

FYI - I love the sunny (and warmer) weather - but these pictures were a challenge. (I needed some sunglasses.) The sun was shining so intently into my eyes -- causing many pictures (and bloopers, which I will share at a later date) of closed, squinting eyes (or an intent stare).  Taking style outfit photos is (learning) difficult process!  Bloggers make it look "perfect" but let's be honest - it is work! One thing though, I am extremely thankful for less wind!


  1. Loving the red on red! Those leopard heels are such a perfect finishing touch!
