Red Repeat

Only it's a repeat you haven't seen (so does it count? hah, trick question). I wore most of this outfit last night for a couple hours to have dinner with some friends. I threw it on after work because it was suddenly 80 degrees out, & jeans weren't cutting it. I wanted a lightweight dress. Of course, this morning, I re-winterized the outfit because it was a touch overcast, plus the office has air conditioning. But I eventually took off the sweater.

What I'm wearing:
Red knit dress, Target
Black lace-edged camisole, Old Navy
Black leggings, American Apparel
Black ruffled bolero sweater, Kohl's
Black elastic belt with ruffle detail, NY&Co.
Black spool-heel lace-up boots, Target
Black shell necklace, bought in Florida
Black beaded earrings, Target
Red flower hair pin, made by me
Red lipstick, Sephora

I feel like I should apologize for not commenting on blogs much recently.  I *am* reading, honest! And loving what people are writing & sharing. But I've been wrapped up in a bunch of things, plus having some health flare-ups, so it feels like a lot just to get a few of my own posts online. It's hard to do everything. But I really appreciate your comments & your blogs :-)


  1. My fave so far: So Sassy! You look like you FEEL in these pics: super pretty

  2. I really, really love this look!

    Take care of yourself. Hopefully the spring weather right around the corner will help!

  3. This is a great outfit; very spunky!
    I love the Kohl's bolero especially.
    Your expression in the last pic after apologizing made me giggle! very cute.

  4. Hey, health issues are no fun. Hang in there!

  5. Looking at this makes me want to watch West Side Story again.

    I feel pretty, oh so pretty!

  6. Yvette - Thanks!

    VictorianKitty - The weather has been lovely, so I hope it helps.

    Hexotica - I love this bolero & wear it a lot.

    Erin - Thanks!

    LovleAnjel - Hee, now that song's in my head!

  7. Combining red and black has always been one of my favorites in dressing - ever since watching "Hook" back in 1992 for the first time... (Yes, I was sooo in love with Rufio *sigh*). ;)

    Awesome outfit! Really like this one.
