A Few of My Favorite Things: Are you Red-y?



With Christmas approaching, I’ve decided to do a little segment called “A few of my favorite things.” So, for the next few posts, I’m going to share just that- a few of my favorite things.

With that being said, I’m not a trendsetter and really haven’t ever been fashionable. I think I have been improving over the last couple of years and with all the social media I’m currently addicted to, the possibilities are endless. In fact, if I find myself on Pinterest it could be an hour before I realize how much time I’ve spent looking at everybody’s outfit ideas. I really like to follow people on Instagram who post #ootd (aka outfit of the day- I had to google the meaning in the beginning. It’s been a slow start ). I’ve realized that I like pretty much every kind of style imaginable and really anything seems to go.  That is how I stumbled into the blogging world, finding websites with fashionable bloggers (I digress).

ANYWAY….

As most of you know (unless you’ve been living in a cave), colored denim has been a huge trend for quite some time now. At first I shied away because I felt like that was too big of a color pop for me to pull off, but then for some reason I decided to buy a pair. I decided on…Red (good way to start subtle, right? NOT). Anyway, these red denim pants have probably been my favorite pair of pants that I have ever owned and I think they could probably go with almost any top.

So, I created my two favorite looks with red denim on Polyvore. This site is beyond awesome to put outfits together and even find clothing to buy.

One of my top choices would have to be red denim with a chambray button-up top. I recently bought one from J. Crew Factory, but I haven’t tried it yet.




My other favorite look is red denim with a black polka dot shirt. I think red and black always look good together and polka dots are definitely in right now. My red denim and black top both came from Belk. (I couldn’t find the link to the top because I bought it on the clearance rack. I found one similar at J. Crew factory I also love the black quilted flats I bought at Target.)



Probably my favorite piece of clothing this winter.













Who knew I would like red so much?

    1. I enjoyed it. Wine or burgandy would be a really great color for winter, especially with a grey or cream top, I think you should get some!
