The first inspiration is of course from Pinterest. I had been thinking about the combination of Red & Pink in an outfit, so when I came upon this pin I knew it had to be talked about.
I've presented two options here where you could splurge or save. Either way, I'm loving the bright, bold combination of these colors together. Play around with them...you could even just do a red or pink dress & simply add the other color in your accessories and/or shoes. Just be sure there is good contrast between the tones of each color...if the red & pink are too similar in tone, there won't be enough contrast in the outfit.
This next inspiration actually came from a mannequin in J. Crew that I saw walking by the store a few weeks ago. It's no secret that I adore military/utility vests, so I immediately took to this look that's both feminine & urban chic.
I immediately came home & tried to duplicate the look using a red jersey dress I already own. Unfortunately, my dress is an A-line which didn't look right with the length of the vest, so a forewarning to look for a straight skirt if you're wanting to try this look. Again, I've given the splurge & save options above, but always shop your closet first! I went back & shopped my closet again &, voila, came up with this look using my red & white maxi dress instead!
That wraps up this episode of "Inspirations"...remember to always keep your eyes peeled, you never know what inspiration is lurking around the corner. :-)
