Red to Toe

June 8, 2019

Last October I wrote a post called Seeing Red where I realized that besides black, red is also my power color. It makes me feel strong, and motivated. Since then I have bought a handful of solid red dresses for several occasions from casual to formal. Truth be told red is universally flattering on all skin tones and can be worn all year long from the holiday season to summer.
Here are my tips for wearing reds:

Ease in with your makeup bag: If you think red might be too much on you ease into it with a great red lip, red nails, or even a red coat/accessory.

Colorblock: Once you're feeling bolder try wearing shades of red from head to toe. Whether it be a pant suit, dress, or top and skirt. The shades don't have to be an exact match you can wear burgundy on top and cherry on the bottom if you please!

Nude or black shoes: Don't feel like you have to wear red all the way to your feet. Personally I think nude looks better over black shoes if you're really trying to show off your mean reds, but black heels work too!
You might remember this shirt dress from this post. I love this dress because it transitions so easily from the office to a night out. Plus this red is just so vibrant.
Recently I met Bridget  and she captured some pictures of me that I love. Check out her IG!
That's all I have on tips on wearing red, folks. Short and sweet. The Kansas City heat is already killing me but I'm making do with lots of iced lattes. I'm taking two summer classes and surprisingly not as stressed as usual. Tonight I'm seeing Dark Phoenix with my best friend and trying to figure out how to fit the $5 grande nachos box into my purse. Hope everyone is having a good June. I know I say this every month, but I can't believe how quickly its passing by.
