Red Week Roundup

What I Wore Over the Week That Was Red:

To answer my own question from the beginning of the week, no one noticed that I wore red every day. Not even Rand who took all of these pictures. I actually felt the best on Friday with my suit on. Clearly I am a lawyer all the way down to my very core, if having a basic black suit on made me feel my best.

Do you have a favorite? Or one you think is a flop?

What I Did for Exercise While Being Thankful the Rain Stayed Away:


Rand and I went for a 3 mile hike at the Cedar Ridge Preserve. It was great. Some of it was actually quite difficult (and some was basically walking) but I huffed and puffed my way through it. I really enjoy using my body for activity so much more than exercising. I felt exhilerated (and sweaty) when we were done. We've already decided we will go again before it gets hot.

You looked nice everyday but my favourites are Wednesday and Friday.
I must admit I am quite partial to your courderoy skirt though, it is very pretty.

I just found your blog and enjoy it very much. I use your blog to find fashion ideas and feel your pain re the weight loss (since that's a focus of mine lately). Anyway, I really liked Thursday's outfit and am now looking for a similar graphic tee. I'm totally into stealing your ideas.

My favorite was Monday...sexy and sweet at the same time! I must admit I am least crazy about Tuesday only because I'm not crazy about the pattern mixing. I think all the pieces individually are great -- and the skirt is especially flattering!

Maybe no one noticed because red is a sort of "normal" color. I bet if you wore neon green everyday someone would notice!

My Fave was Monday. Love the red and yellow, so cheerful :)

Thanks for all the input, everyone! I think MOnday was my favorite.

Sherre - oooooh if you copy any of my specific looks, I would LOVE to see your interpretation. So please go back to my original post and leave a comment with link to your look. How fun!!

Kasmira - is that a challenge?? Ha! Sadly I don't think I have enough neon green to do it. But I agree with you - red was probably too normal of a color. Well, baby steps for me. Next time I need to try something a little more challenging.

I really love The Wednesday and the Friday outfits -- Wednesday because I love red/gray combos (I know your pants weren't really gray but they kind of look that way in the photo and the red shirt on Wednesday is super cute). And Friday's suit it just a perfect tailored black suit and you look great in it. (I guess I'm a lawyer to my core too -- yikes!) I love your site! -Sharon

Sharon - thanks! And I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one that likes a basic suit!

I think Mon, Wed, and Fri are my favs. Glad you had a great hike. Looking forward to the week's outfits
