I have to admit, this Fashion Friday was super hard to pull off. Picking a red plaid coat seemed like a good idea *until* I tried to pair it with other cute red dresses/clothes. Red is a hard, hard color to match as there are about a billion different shades and if you're off, you're off by a lot. One of my most embarassing childhood memories was when I was attending a state-wide contest in high school journalism. The newspaper that interviewed me asked me what was my pet peeve and I answered in my oh-so-smart-and-wise-not-at-all-shallow-high-school-ways….."people who wear different reds together."
Okay, so I may have been super young and so cut me some slack please. Oh please do.
I am now embarrassed all over again.
But transparency is good, right?
Anyway, I ditched the effort to try and find a little girl dress that matched mom's pretty coat. (I'm a sucker for a pretty coat/jacket….just ask my friends how many I have.) I decided instead to go with the khaki color in the collar. This freed me to find a cute sweater that had red touches thus bringing it all together without the headache of trying to match. Then dad and brother came together easily.
This is a very classic and semi-dressy outfit without being too over-the-top. It kinda reminds me of a gingerbread cookie. Love it for this holiday season and for those Christmas card photos everyone is wanting. If you'd like to make an appointment for your session, call me and we'll chat! I only have a handful of openings left this season.
And I promise, I won't wear clashing reds.
