Red and Black

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. Today’s look is how I’d wear one of my favorite blazers of the season to work. I styled this blazer previously in this post. Alternatively, I could throw on boyfriend jeans and a printed blouse with heels, or even with some brightly printed or sparkly pants and coordinating pointed-toe flats. I definitely need to get some sparkly pants, dare I say it, maybe even some sparkly harem pants? We’ll see if I chicken out on that one…
This is how I would wear this blazer to work, over a dress, with a statement necklace and some heels.

Who said your lips can’t match your dress?

A girlfriend and I were talking about how red is such an amazing color that suits everyone. There is a shade for everyone, and yes even for red heads. Maybe that is why it is traditional in Asian cultures to wear red on your wedding day, it just makes a girl stand out from the crowd. I love it! 
Also, someone pointed out to me that I looked very Christmas-y – and I agree this is a very festive look with the red and green. What do you think?

Thanks for visiting and have a great day.

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
