Welcome to a brand new blogger collaboration and Stylish Mondays monthly link up! I’ve teamed up with eight other bloggers for our first theme, which is “Ladies in Red”. Very appropriate as February is the month of Valentine’s Day ❤️
Red is my favourite colour; it makes me feel confident and vibrant. Because it’s a colour I wear a lot, I wanted to go all out by wearing red head to toe…well ok, head to ankle! I have a couple of pairs of red trousers but these cropped ones are a near perfect shade match for my frill blouse (which I wore for the Style Not Age Frill Seekers post). The high waist style works well with the loose fit of the blouse, which needs to be worn tucked in or knotted at the front, otherwise it looks shapeless.
I didn’t plan on pairing yellow and red together – it’s not a colour combination I’d normally consider. But sometimes a flash of inspiration strikes and you hit upon a winner! Shoes were not really an option given the snow on the ground (it didn’t last long). These boots were still out of their box from the January Jumpers photo shoot, so I tried them and loved how they looked with the red trousers.
Often I’ll work three colours into my outfit, but I didn’t want to dilute the contrast of the yellow against the red. Adding a yellow bag, bracelet and tassel earrings keeps the colour palette simple but it packs a punch. I can’t think of another occasion where I’ve worn these two colours together, but I’ll definitely be trying this combination again!
