Red's The Word



Nothing too adventurous today, but I just needed to do some layering due to the rather erratic weather we have been having as of late. I always find myself drawn to darker clothing when it rains for some reason, I am not quite sure why (anybody else the same?). However in an effort to puncture such a doleful colour palette, I added some bright touches of red, namely a red tie, red leather belt and red laces for my hi top plimsoles. Not to worry though, when the sun returns (from its own summer holiday?), I will be back in lots of bright and fun clothing, I have quite a few pieces to be showcased on the blog, which hopefully make a few people smile!

On a side note: I edited my photograph mosaic post to include answers for those of you who were interested in my results.

  1. I like the bright red splashes of color. Stormy weather just makes me not want to go outside. Though some cooler weather would be appreciated here...

  2. i think the instinct is to bury ourselves under layers of dark clothing in this dark UK weather (these past weeks have been hideous!), but i hate wearing black and try to avoid it where possible. however, it's always the fallback option. in an attempt to avoid it i usually go for a soft marl grey as an alternative, but splashes of colour like your red are always welcome!

  20. I, too, lather myself in blacks and greys when it's cold and rainy. I feel like they absorb the little heat that's floating around.
    I love the look though! The collegiate cardigan and tie contrasted with the sneakers and edgier jacket is fantastic.

  21. i really like the red touches. it really brings attentino to them. =)

    i can't remember the last time i went out while it was raining so i can't comment on being drawn to dark clothes when it rains. maybe it's because dark clothes seem more comfy?
