Retro red


Red, again! I have to tell you a little secret... I actually wore this outfit last weekend, before I wore the outfit I posted on Thursday. I felt weird about posting two outfits in a row featuring red, especially since I don't wear it a ton in the winter compared to neutrals like black and grey. Is postponing the posting of this outfit because of that weird? Probably.

Anyway, I pulled out a couple of other oldies-but-goodies for this retro-inspired outfit: the red sweater, which hasn't made an appearance since last April, and these boots. Oh, these boots. I love these boots, but I have the most difficult time styling them. I'm not sure if it's the height, the color, or the wingtip that throws me off most. Regardless, I'm going to be trying to create more outfits with them since I do adore them so much. I've been scouring Pinterest for outfit ideas. This outfit was actually inspired by this pin, which I found links to this blog post (though the exact photo isn't in that post). Thank you, Nicole of Blankbird, for inspiring me to wear these boots again!
