Better off Red

I am sure it is no surprise to anyone that my favourite colour is red. It's even the colour of my room (and let me tell you, that took several coats of paint), so it's crazy to me that I don't incorporate it more in my wardrobe. I mean, I wear it everyday right now with my hair, but I own surprisingly few red pieces, but I've taken to rectify this grave injustice.
My dad actually got me this scarf for Christmas and it is now my go to. Not only is it my favourite hue (bought for me by Hugh!) but it's incredibly soft and cozy. Perfect to bundle up and add some colour to ensembles such as this one. I have the tendency to lean towards more neutrals in the winter, but that makes it a good backdrop for pieces such as this scarf and this neon purse.

  1. Your dad has such good taste! I love red too and in my last house had a red, black, and white color scheme throughout the whole thing..ha! I'm beginning to think I need a leather jacket like that - it always looks so perfect over all your pretty dresses :-). xo Marisa

  2. Oh, that scarf is such a classic and I can see it going with just about anything (well, maybe not some violets or mints, but otherwise!). Your dad has great taste.

    My room throughout college was all reds. It was nice :) I'd love to see your room.

  3. That's such a great scarf - and it looks perfect with this outfit. Red is definitely your colour!
