Back to Red

I wear red year-round as it's one of my favorite colors to wear, however I find myself wearing it a very large amount when the temperature cools down. Particularly December/January/February. I completely don't understand people who say people with red hair shouldn't wear the color red. They wear black with black hair and brown with brown hair, so what's the difference?
There's quite a bit of red going on in this outfit though...

skirt: thrifted
jacket: ralph lauren; thrifted
tights: kmart
shirt: b-52s concert
shoes: target
belt: thrifted
hair bow: forever 21

I'm so very seductive.


This Ralph Lauren jacket was such a great thrift find. It doesn't button (it's not supposed to) and it fits me perfectly. It also has a nice black velvet-y collar on it too. Pretty classy. 

I'm on my pre-winter break break right now. Of course I have to have one more final left on Monday. It's going to be difficult making myself study while I'm basking in all the Christmas goodness at home. I'll try though. I will really try.

red is my favourite colour to wear as well, i think ti compliments a paler skin tone. love this ensemble - the classy jacket, vibrant tights, sophisticated skirt, fun top (love the B 52's!!) and great heels. and i totally disagree with red heads not being allowed to wear red, although being a brunette, i don't wear brown that often.

So cute! I have red tights just like that, and I never seem to wear them, so thanks for the inspiration. ;)

Thats weird that people tell you that red hair and red shouldn't be worn together, everytime I die my hair red people always tell me to wear red!!
I love when you wear red, it looks gorgeous. And this tweed skirt, band tshirt and bright red blazer are the perfect combination!

I LOVE all the red. I'm with you-- why not wear red with red hair? I think it looks amazing.

Red is my favorite color, as well! I love that even though you're a red head you still sport red; you go darling!

P.S. And congrats on winning best dressed! ❤

The red looks great with your hair. Whoever said redheads shouldn't wear red needs to mind their own business and look at this outfit. Love it!
Good luck with your last final! It's always a pain to go back to school when your already in break mode.

I think that red really suits you. It's probably my favourite colour on you. I adore the jacket!

Who says that? I've never heard that red rule before! I think it's totally bogus because you look awesome in red. I've never really tried to wear that much red and I wish I had the clothes to do so! It's so fabulous!
