Stylish Monday Linkup – How We Wear Red And Heart Healthy Month


Hello Ladies,

It is that time of the month, where myself and other ladies of the Stylish Mondays group get together and style a theme. This month the theme is  Ladies in Red for Valentines and for heart health in February. I myself am a red lover, yes my hair is a given, but I also love to wear red. It is such a bold and striking color!


First, before I talk about this outfit, I mentioned Friday, that I was featured, Elegantly Dressed and Stylish blog, on the wonderful blog, You Look Fab. When you get a chance, I’d love for you to pop by. I was thrilled for my style to be featured there, as I often admire the styles on this blog.

Now, if I were in my “journalism mode” and were to write a byline for the movie that we saw over the weekend, one of the Oscar picks, “The Favorite”, I would  have to title it, “Not My Favorite”. As a heads up, my hubby read to me that the movie had the same director as “The Lobster”. I should have gone with my gut instinct! We did enjoy food and wine, popcorn and of course the company, so all was not lost! Next weekend, we are headed to Raylen Vineyards for a Valentine event. More on that later 🙂

My Outfit

RED. It is one of those colors that you either love to wear a lot of, as it seems to exude confidence and a “want to be seen” look, or you still love it enough to want to incorporate it in an accessory for a punch of color. I will wear red for a pop of color with neutrals, or go bold and feel fabulous in a red dress. It really depends on my mood!

This outfit is one of those bolder looks with this red blazer I was gifted from the company Misook. ( last year). I love the classic combination of red and black and another favorite by adding leopard print to the mix. I wanted to keep the long line to my legs and chose to wore my Jambu black booties. I could change it up and add a second leopard pattern with my leopard boots, or pattern mix with a complimentary patterned bootie.

I am wearing a silk tank under the blazer, my favorite Ann Taylor faux leather leggings and brought out my Christmas gift from hubby, my red Prada bag. I love the bow details that add a feminine touch to the look as well.

Since today is Stylish Mondays, and we share a theme once a month, the ladies are going to be styling red. Do check out their blogs and how they are going to be styling it.

I have styled red on the blog for Holidays like Christmas and Valentine’s Day, but it really is a color you can wear anytime you want to stand out or just feel good!

February is Heart Healthy Month

It is always the time of the year it seems when we take stock of our health. January, the gyms fill up with people longing to get healthier. Do you think about your heart health? Since I have Ehlers-Danlos, and it is a connective tissue disease, my heart can be affected. More often, it is the Vascular type of this illness that has more concerns, however, I do go to the cardiologist and get checked. My Dad, brother, and sister have all had A-Fib irregular heartbeat where the Atria beats too fast or Atrial Fibrillation. ) I have been tested with an EKG recently showing that I do not have A-Fib. If it runs in your family, it is good to get tested.

Nutrition is important to me, and I love to eat a healthy diet. It makes me feel better, and I do enjoy eating this way. I find that if I eat healthier, and have vegetables and fruits around, I will snack on them. I also find I crave healthier foods by eating this way. I do love my cheese though.!.

    You look stunning! Red and Green are two colors I rarely wear. I like red on me during the summer.
    However, with Valentines Day just around the corner, I have been wearing lots of pink.

    Stunning as usual my friend! I love the shade of red you chose and of course red is my favorite with leopard! What shade of lipstick are you wearing? I am always on the hunt for the perfect shade. This was a wonderful theme for this month – heart health is so important. Especially for women and so much of the time I hear about women having heart attacks and didn’t even realize that’s what they were having – so scary!

      Hi My friend! I am wearing NARS, I think Cruella. I will send you an email later when I go look at the shade ! I have a tough time finding reds I like, but this is a blue-red that works well with my skin tone! You are so right about the heart and women. I was thankful I didn’t have A-fib as it would be something else to deal with but it is manageable. Thank you friend! xx
