We Love Red. We Wear Red.

Last week I shared this Mommy+Toddler Style post on the blog and the focus was all on the Outerwear and Winter Accessories. Truth is, the outfits underneath all the warm layers and our warm coats, were quite pretty too and I wore some Cute Jewelry and Red Satin Pumps, even carried a New Beautiful Clutch (I wore this Outfit to work, that day), so today I wanted to share the outfit within. When Vivian and I were shooting a few Mommy+Me Valentine inspired posts this past February, I thought we should take a couple of pieces we had styled during one of of our Holiday/December fun shoots (from this post specifically) and style them in new ways. Vivian is wearing her Red Tutu and I am wearing my Red Rose Bow-Tie Top.

Unlike last time when I went with a dressy, feminine look, this time I still dressed up the blouse a little with Red Satin Pumps, my Silver+White Tassel Clutch and some Nice Jewelry and Pearls, but I also dressed it down by wearing Flare Jeans and the Olive Utility Jacket. I am a fan of paring Olive with Red (after seeing this) and I will try it again. Also, that is one bold and bright Orange-Red Lipstick. Vivian wore her Red Tulle Tutu over Gray+White+Coral Patterned Leggings that look like a Leopard Floral with a Fun Colorblocked Graphic Tee on top (I love that owl), her White+Hot Pink Disney Princess Sneakers and a Blue Lucite Bow Barrette which says "Hello" and was perfect for Valentine's week. She received her Bow Barette and several other adorable lucite barrettes in different colors, courtesy of a local boutique - they will be perfect for Sprung with all her outfits and fun dresses. She also put some lipgloss on (all by herself) and wanted me to apply some of mommy's red lipstick lol. Do you own a similar Red Bow-Tie Blouse? I would love to see how you style yours. And stay tuned tomorrow night for Thursday Moda #2, the second week of my brand-new linkup. Don't forget to link up! =)

Vivian was putting her "red" on. She calls lipsticks/lipglosses - "Red". I think she calls them that because most lipsticks I wear are red.
