Black and Red Palette

IMG_3697

Hello Ladies!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. This week  I thought I would use the color palette of black and red and show different styles and ways to wear such colors. These pics were taken in a mountain town called Blowing Rock, where my husband, pups and I went for the day.

We had a great time in this small mountain town, , brought the pups and just spent the day going into shops, eating lunch outside, and seeing the local arts and crafts culture. A fun day trip my hubby and I like to explore different parts of the Carolinas, as there is alot of beauty in the mountain areas.
There was a beautiful stone church where my hubby decided to snap some photos, a lovely garden, and then there was a 50s Fashion Police car there! I was not pulled over or given a citation, as my outfit was deemed lovely by the officer. 🙂 ( I can be silly so I really wanted to go and put my hands up on the car, but hubby can be the straight laced one, and he told me not to touch it! Well, well.

I am going to show you several outfits this week with the color scheme of red and black. Mixing and matching, as well as using a palette that you like and that compliments your skin tone is a way to make more out of your closet. So this theme will be black and red for this week, hope you enjoy.

Red top: Ann Taylor Loft, Skirt, ( Ann Taylor), Shoes: Poshmark, 1928 jewerly, Rebecca Minkoff Bag.

Have a great Monday,
jess xo

    Red and black is such a classic color combo and one of my top 3 favorites. I adore your skirt and the textured ruffle on your tank. =) You look gorgeous, Jess. =)))
