Whaaat, look at that! Mia is wearing red! Red!
Maybe y’all haven’t noticed (psh, I know you guys watch my every move), but I don’t wear a whole lot of red. Red is difficult for me. I don’t have many red garments because I’m not really drawn to it, but the red pieces I do have, I have a hard time styling. My brain just sort of goes to mush. “Red? What’s that?” And I almost invariably end up pairing it with black or white or olive, and then I feel kind of dull.
Which isn’t to say I don’t like this outfit! I do! I like the items together, and it was another good excuse to bust out my pretty flower-circles necklace. But it’s not terribly creative, color-wise, and my creatively-colored outfits are the ones that I tend to be really proud of.
Maybe it’s just that it’s a cooler red? Maybe cranberry just isn’t meant to be a summer color. Maybe I should just stick with pinky-shades or raspberry reds and leave it at that. I just want to crack the code!
Do you like red? If so, what shades do you prefer? What colors do you pair it with? Give me your secrets.
