Red and Redder.

I realize I have brought you a lot of bright reds and pinks (magenta) lately but here is another dose of them. I love how fun, girly, bright and cheery this outfit is. I am after all wearing my Favorite Color - Red. Red is a Power Color, a Feel-Good Color, a Feminine Color and a Color that I think looks good all-around on all women, despite their hair color or skin color. =)

So, pleats were huge this summer and I have worn my fair share of pleated skirts, even-though not every outfit has made it to the blog, because some weekend outfits have remained unphotographed. I love the delicate Tomato Red on the skirt, paired with a darker, fuller, let's call it "Blood Red" on top. Plus, as if this outfit wasn't bright enough I got sequins on top. I have several of these sequined tank tops from Express in different colors, and similar ones from The Limited also. They are great mixing and matching pieces. Allso, this is one of my favorite sets of jewelry from White House Black Market. I own a ton of jewelry from there (you have seen some of it in my blog), love their pieces. They have some great Statement Necklaces, especially. =) What do you think of this outfit? I actually adored this outfit. I felt at least 5 years younger in it. I took a bunch of photos that day, too, didn't even post all of them. But my favorite of all is the very last one. Yes I carry a little sweetheart inside my belly. =)

Wishing you all had a great relaxing weekend and a fun Sunday, I will see you all tomorrow for a brand new week. =)

  3. Yes, pleats are the way to go ! I really like that skirt, i do not think i have seen you wear it before.
    It would also look spectacular with a crisp white shirt.

    1. Yes I have worn it once before with a white top. Not a white button-down but still a white top. =) Thanks Lorena.
