I’ve had this outfit hanging on my clothing rack for a good minute. Just hanging. Collecting dust. Then came the 12 Days of Christmas Style Challenge hosted by me and my friend Sharon on Instagram! You can see my Instagram page here. Today’s theme is “The Lady in Red”. It was time for this outfit to make its debut!
You know how you have an idea of how something will look before putting it on? You have this perfect picture and sometimes it doesn’t live up to the imagined hype. Well baybayyyyyy, this look turned out just as good as I had imagined. It’s like this dress had been waiting its whole life for this top! But, where did this idea come from?
I love button up shirts. And I love collars. And I love putting things together that don’t naturally seem to go. The contrast of the white top with black trees is the perfect pairing for this solid red dress. The collar adds a pop of something special. Sure, a plain white button up shirt would have done the trick too. But, the black adds another dimension to the overall outfit.
I started to wear a belt with it. But, that belt paired with this ensemble did not live up to the hype. It was quickly dismissed. I threw on some sheer tights and black booties and we had a winner! This dress is no longer available, but I linked other dresses and the booties below. I bought the booties I am wearing from Amazon! This post is not sponsored, but these are affiliate links.
Georgia weather is seriously a brainteaser. It can be cold in the morning and like spring in the afternoon. Fortunately, it wasn’t too cold the morning I wore this outfit. So, this outfit was perfect for the weather. And it was perfect for me.
