Turning Heads #Linkup :Black and Red, Instead.




You know I am a fan of Zara.   This is from last years collection, a red circle skirt. 


These bow flats remind me of Kate Spade,but are Target at a fraction of the cost!

Hello Ladies!

It’s that time of week again! Linkup time!! I am so grateful to all of the ladies here who have participated and shared their style in order to make this a fun and successful linkup!  I think we all need to linkup, kick back and either enjoy a cup of coffee of glass of vino depending on what time of day it is where you live!

When looking blankly at my closet-I think we all do this, I decided there has been a  plethora of pastels I  have been showing you, it was time to change gears and bring out a classic combination of red and black!  I know I may have mentioned this story before, but I just laugh to myself as I buy yet another pastel garment only to picture my Eurythmics teacher on my shoulder saying “you would look great in pastels” when I was in college. I am not rebelling but I think she must have subconsciously made an impact and I have worn a fair amount of pastel blues, pinks, purples lately.

Now it is time to add this black sheer at the top-polka dot shell, with this #Zara ( yet again) flirty red circle skirt. I was ready for a bit of a change!

    Black & Red are a bold combination and you are pulling it off beautifully Jess. The polka dot transparent part of the top is such a nifty detail for the look.
