Red rider – styling boyfriend jeans with platform booties, a kimono, and a chunky cardigan

Today’s post was supposed to be all about these fab new jeans that I scooped up just last week…but I’m thinking some of their thunder is likely being stolen by that little “rocket” you see parked behind me!! 😉

Finally!!  The rain (and snow!) stayed away long enough that Robin and I felt we could show off the rather impractical but seriously fun vehicle to which we treated ourselves after our old reliable Sunfire was totalled last month.  Even if you don’t know cars, you can probably see that we stuck with a Pontiac…but can you guess what model* this is??

Almost as cool as our wheels, though??  These “reworked” jeans that I found for a crazy twenty bucks – twenty bucks! – at H&M!!  I promise to wear them again really soon so you can get a good look at the interesting seam and pocket detail; this time around that perfectly slouchy fit and major cuff will have to do!!

And please tell me you don’t still believe that pink and red don’t go together?!  I’m so loving the contrast of my pink hair against this tomato-coloured sweater and the maroon of my kimono…which are, of course, two reds that also don’t “traditionally” play well with each other!!  Proof once again that we need to ditch all those old-fashioned style rules, am I right?!

    Ooh, fun outfit again—and I am sure it's so much fun to drive that pretty new car!

    Always good to see you pushing the envelope…

    I'm having serious car envy.

    I think your color blend together nicely. The color of the kimono actually accentuates your hair.

    On the contrary, the pink in your hair, red in your kimono and orange in your cardigan were the first thing I noticed about your pictures, and thought "wow".
