There’s likely a lot about this look that won’t be everyone’s cup of tea…but have you checked out my tagline lately?? It’s not for nothing that I call my little corner of the blogosphere a place of style inspiration for fearless fashionistas!! 😉
First things first – while I really don’t wear red very often, on those days when I am feeling it?? I’m certainly not going to let this pink ‘do of mine stop me!! Anyone who watches the runways and the streets knows that colour “blocking” and “clashing” are now a very acceptable way to go, so putting pink and red together can’t be considered a fashion faux-pas anymore. Plus, I’ve always loved the look of auburn (aka “red”) hair next to a pretty pop of pink…so why shouldn’t it work the other way around??
My pleather shorts and tights are up next; and they are probably the most polarizing part of this ensemble. These shorts are the only pair I own, but they’ve been a part of my wardrobe for a number of years now…probably because they make for a fun switch-up on those rare occasions when I’m a little tired of my go-to jeans and vegan leather leggings. “Hot pants” (tee hee!) without legwear layered underneath are not happening, though…especially considering that December – and winter – are literally right around the corner!!
And lastly, there’s the fact that I opted for a cape instead of a coat to finish off my look today. I haven’t seen many of them around anymore…so does that mean they’re no longer a thing?? Do I care if they aren’t?? Obviously I don’t – or I would have added this sweet little tweed number to my donation box a while ago. Trends are great guidelines, dear readers, but allowing them to dictate everything you wear kind of contradicts the whole idea of “personal” style, don’t you think?!
