Red and Blue for Election Day 2016.

So, did you all go vote today? I hope so. =) I went to vote around 5.00 PM and I was there a total of about 20 minutes (including parking, walking in and back to my car). Easy peasy. Of course I posted a selfie with my "I Voted" sticker on Instagram. As I am typing this post, I am listening/watching CNN and finding out part of the results. This is exciting, overwhelming, scary and nail-biting, isn't it? Interestingly enough, Michigan (my state) is one of the wild cards this year and one of the states they don't know the results of, yet. They are talking a lot about Michigan, in particularly Wayne County as being crucial to the main results, on this particular election - hmmm how interesting! Anyhow, this outfit today is actually what I wore to go vote. I honored both parties and America with my Red and Blue. 

But of course I added just a tiny pop of white with my little flower pearl and crystal ball pave hair barrette. I actually wore this outfit to work, too. We were allowed to wear jeans today and mine were even slightly distressed (shhhh, no one noticed or said anything). I was at work only for a few hours. I snapped these photos right after. But when I went to vote, I did add a little suede jacket to this ensemble (not pictured) because it was chilly and quite windy out. I love how this outfit is a red+blue colorblocked look, but it is also monochromatic with the three shades of red (sweater, shirt and lips - of course I had to accessorize with red lipstick) and the three shades of blue (jeans, bag and earrings). The pointy mini wedges are gray but it is a dark shade of gray which even looks blue-ish. My new Dark Red/Wine Button-Down Utility Shirt from Loft has a small Fall Pattern in it. It is described as 'vines' by Loft and they look looks flickers in bright red and blue.

Did you cast your vote today? What did you wear? Did you put together a patriotic outfit? For more on voting and how I felt about this year's election, read yesterday's post.

Look at the color and pattern of my shirt, it matches the red-ish tree behind me, perfectly!

  13. Great look. Our state was a wild card one too. This whole election has been the worst but I just have to trust God with the future as although I did vote I didn't like ALL of the candidates but at least I did vote.

  16. Ada, I love these colors on you! Red is super flattering. And I really love the pairing of the wine with the red and blue. I always loved red, white, and blue together as well. But you already know that I wore lavender on election day! Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge.
