I finally got a red bag! I’ve been loving red for a couple months now, but just as an accent. I guess I’m kind of easing my way in. To be honest, I used to hate red. I always thought it brought out the redness in my face, which is obviously not flattering at all. But I just somehow got over that and now I want all the red. Red bags, red shoes, red jewelry, red nails, red lips. Perfect timing for Valentine’s Day, huh?!
I had been on the hunt for the perfect red bag for a while. And although I found some really amazing ones, I just couldn’t bring myself to spend $1000 on a bag…again. So I kept an eye on Shopbop on Amazon and this fab bag went on major sale from $400 to $230, so I knew I had to snatch it up! I wore it with solid neutrals for a classic look. My black jeans are the ones I got a few months ago that have totally become my favorites for winter.
I got the layered sweater at H&M the other day for under $20. I love layered sweaters! I don’t know why, because I could easily layer any sweater myself. These are just so easy and clean in my opinion. You get the layered look without the bulkiness. I do usually wear a tank or something thin under to keep warm.
The shoes are kind of the same as the layered sweater. They’re easy, clean, and classic looking. I got these about a year ago, but I found a similar pair here. Since I was feeling the red, I painted my nails red so I’d have that little accent with every accent I wore. I added a red lip with my new YSL matte lip stain. It’s the perfect bright, bold red. Love! Finally, I topped it all off with these red tassel earrings. I’m actually surprised I had so many things in the same shade of red. I obviously can’e get enough of it!
Are you loving red accents this winter?
