Power Red

Monday, April 24, 2017

It occurred to me recently that my wardrobe hasn't excited me in a while. Call it a return from the winter slump, but I've lately been wanting a total refresh of my closet to gear up for the rising temperatures. I don't spend much time succumbing to every new fashion trend out there (sorry Gucci), but there are a few that have particularly caught my eye this season. Statement earrings and power red, to be exact.

Between these two trends, they share a commonality that I could use more of in my wardrobe -- a statement. Red has a way of exuding confidence, or as Refinery29 put it perfectly, it's "the color of a woman in charge". These days it feels especially important to embody the girl boss way of life, am I right? My blog likely indicates that wearing color hasn't quite been my thing, but I think I'm about ready for a change. Plus, this outfit made me feel guiltlessly like the HBIC, and I'm totally fine with it.

  15. This is a lovely outfit -- casual but chic with the pop of bold colour. Voluminous sleeves are definitely trending now so it pairs well with a great statement earring! :) /Madison
