If you've been reading sometime, you might know that you rarely see color in my outfits. And that couldn't be more true when it comes to any shade of red. Don't get me wrong--red is a really pretty color and well synonymous with the holidays. I just happen not to feel myself in it. I'm sure you have a color that you love on others but can't seem to make it work. But I've learned not to give up on those colors. It's about finding a shade that compliments your skin (for me that's deeper reds). Then, it's about the style. I'm a huge fan of lace! When I saw this top, I went for it. It was a happy medium of my style and still going out of my comfort zone. Naturally, styling this crimson top with my neutrals was a no-brainer.
Now, let's flashback to last year's outfit here. I still can't over those pretty leaves. But anyway, all these pieces are still in my closet. This look came together after I decided to book a 24 hour trip to San Francisco. If there's ever a time to rely on basics, it's when you have to pack lightly.
