lady in red

[varga tank, zara jeans {last seen here}, target leather jacket + pumps, rebecca minkoff bag, michael kors watch, david yurman bracelet, rings: madewell/family heirloom, polo ralph lauren glasses, mac morange lipstick]

Admittedly, this ensemble is a bit premature.  Wedges clearly would have made more sense for the SoCal heat wave we've been experiencing lately.  But every now and then, even in the midst of Summer, I crave a taste of Fall, mostly for fashion purposes (I can't wait to wear my jeans like this again).  Unfortunately the leaves don't change here, so I'm happy for the heat to stay as long as it likes.

Momma would call me crazy for welcoming hot weather because she always loved the cold.  I'm certain she'd love this outfit though.  I've been missing her a lot lately, so I'm welcoming any connection to her I can get. I'll be sharing the story behind the ring on my pinky soon and why it's so important to me.

We're halfway to Friday, people. Treat yourself to something today!


  1. Loving your leather jacket! So cute and adds a little edge to your outfit. Side note, upon seeing your post title I immediately started humming the song and thinking of the movie dodgeball :)

    1. Thanks so much my love! Haha I definitely was thinking of that movie the whole time I wrote this one...great minds.
