It’s a holiday week here in the good ol’ US of A so I decided a deviation from the same old, same old was called for.
To celebrate the 4th of July – America’s independence day – I shall regale my lovely readers with outfits that sport the Red, White, and Blue. In that order.
And because Greenthumb has yet to reveal her July list for my photo scavenger hunt, I’m co-opting tomorrow’s feature with an extra OOTD. This week’s for you, Marsha! 😜
Today, then, I give you red. Long-time readers know I struggle mightily with wearing this color. And of course I had to go and compound the struggle by dying my hair this indeterminate shade of perhaps brown but more than likely orange.
You would think.
But somehow – and I dunno if it’s because it’s summer and I’m more forgiving or because a lighter shade of hair just makes things all better or what – the few red things in my closet didn’t intimidate me as they used to. And this number that I’d picked up impulsively from Ross when I was Mad Hunting maxi dresses called out to me and begged to be worn.
To my credit, I did attempt a full photo session with it alone because I was trying to prove to myself that a dress is the perfect closet item in that it requires minimal thought. But I guess I’m still in work mode. Or perhaps it just hasn’t been as warm a summer as we’ve had. Regardless, I decided to style this beauty with a cropped white blazer, and that, along with my blue TARDIS watch and some bangles, really pulled the outfit together.
So sure, it’s predominantly red, but I’m trying to be all sly and sneak in some of the other colors in all my outfits. Wanna play “Where’s Waldo?” with me for the remainder of the week’s offerings?
