Red makes it better!

Jacket: Old/DIY; Pants: Kohls (no longer available); Clutch: AEO; Watch: Michael Kors; Shades: H&M; Wedges: Target (on clearance)
I have always loved red things: red shoes, red liptstick, red dishes, red dresses- you get the picture.  When I wear red, there is a little extra spring in my step.
We were on a mission to find some white dress shoes for my daughter when I came across these palazzo pants.  I had not ventured into this trend yet and rather than opting for a more classic print, I decided to make the dive and claim these attention grabbing red ones.  What do you wear with something this busy?? My most favorite ensemble with these this summer has been a mustard colored crop with a white layered tank and a red bubble statement necklace. But  then I remembered that I had recently repurposed this cute denim jacket into a short sleeve version which is how this outfit came to be. (Genius! Merch Maven is where I got this DIY idea from!!)  I really liked the more simple and fitted contrast between the two pieces making it a little bit more classic but not detracting from how fun these pants really are.
My old pal Candida, who is the fashionista of Merch Maven, took these pictures of me over the weekend.  It was so fun catching up with this beautiful lady and the evening went by quickly with all our shop and fashion talk (as well as everything else, I can talk the phone book)!  Can’t wait to show you some of the other ones we took that day as well.  Go check out her blog here.  Next time I go for a visit, I am taking a picture inside her shoe closet…best shoes ever!!
Have a great Wednesday!
