HOLIDAY RED


GAP SWEATER, FOREVER 21 SUEDE SKIRT & CLUTCH, TARGET TIGHTS, SAM EDELMAN 'WILMA' BOOTIES, MICHAEL KORS WATCH [SIMILAR]

My relationship with the color red has always been a love/hate one. Love it for home decor (specifically the kitchen), lipstick and nail polish. Not a fan for clothing... that is until recently. The holiday season makes me welcome this bright color more so than usual.

I'm actually in the Bay Area spending the holidays with my boyfriend & his family. Always nice to take off and escape LA for a few days - even if it means leaving 75 degrees sunshine for 45 degrees & freezing. Wishing all of you the merriest & happiest Christmas/Holidays!

  2. I love red on you! I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the color too. Lately I've found myself being drawn to it more though.

  3. Red looks great on you! I always have the worst time finding red in clothing too! I have yet to find a shade that's flattering! Have a great hikiday with your bf!

  5. Loving your booties and the gorgeous red on your sweater. Merry Christmas in NorCal! But the sunny Christmas in SoCal is definitely hard to beat (at least in my opinion). It's gorgeous in LA right now!

  12. Red looks really good on you and I love the fit of the sweater. Excellent bracelet layering. One day I will achieve that look and I'm so jealous you live in California. It's always cold and rainy in Ohio. I hope your Christmas was lovely.

    i have the exact same relationship with red! i love it in nail polish and lipstick so much but i haven't been a huge fun in clothing, until recent when i started liking it! especially during this time of the year! there something so festive about it and i am sure that it also helps to make you happy !

  20. Red looks great on you! But, I understand how you feel. Everyone says I should wear more red, but for some reason, it never really appeals to me
