Lady in Red

What I Wore

For anyone that couldn’t tell, red is my favorite color of all time. I love bright reds, burgundy, maroon you name it. So for this post I decided to take my obsession to the next level by wearing an entirely red outfit!

Monochromatic outfits are challenging for me because I am truly an introvert although part of me loves to stand out. At times I struggle with confidence and question the brighter, crazier things I want to wear because I know that it will bring attention to me. Thankfully on this day I decided to really just go for it and I am so happy that I did.

It was Christmas Eve that I decided to wear the ultimate Christmas sweater. This knitted homage to Home Alone is one of my all time favorites and makes me laugh every time I read it.

The second I found these burgundy pants I decided to make it an all red lewk. Despite this incredible combo, the shoes are what really brought everything together.

These beauties are actually Hunter by Target rain boot/ sneaker hybrids. They are often the highlight of my outfits simply for the fact that I can find nothing to match them with.

The moment I put this outfit on I knew I had something special because it felt so completely me. Even though I felt this way part of me really wanted to rip the whole thing off and throw on a pair of jeans and neutral shoes instead. But when I feel this way I know that it is just my anxiety speaking, so I wore the outfit.

I wore the outfit and, to be honest, I felt pretty self conscious but I also felt happy and like myself. And it may not seem like such a big deal to others but this small win really made my day.
