Red Pearls

Cardigan - Joe Fresh; T-shirt - Old Navy; Skirt & Tights - Jacob
Boots & Pendant - Aldo

 It seems like the theme of this week is: the uglier the weather, the brighter the clothes.

Yesterday, a day that called for freezing rain, I decided it was only fitting to wear my bright red pencil skirt to work. To let the red pop and be the focus of the ensemble, I decided to stick with classic pieces and monochromatic colours for the rest of the look. Throw in a few pearls and a golden leaf, and I was basically a walking billboard for spring - I really am doing everything I can to channel the warmer, dryer weather.

Some days all you need is a little pop of colour and a few pearls to take you away from the snow and sleet.

Let's Connect:


  1. I love everything about this outfit, so chic. You have also just given me inspiration of how to wear my polka dot tights, so thank you for that! I need to go buy myself a red pencil skirt now haha :)

  6. Love the red skirt! It'll be perfect to brighten up any dreary days! And your necklace is so pretty.

  7. Very cute outfit here! I agree, the colder the weather the brighter the clothes need to be!

  8. Always love a pop of red in an ensemble! And I agree - the more dismal the day, the brighter the colours i want to wear to counteract the doldrums!

    1. I've realized it's the only way to get through this bleak season. Plus, who doesn't love a good pop of red?!
