When I came up with the perfect pink and red outfit on the cusp of fall, I decided I couldn't sit on it until Valentine's Day and had to wear it immediately. It's no secret that Valentine's is my favorite holiday. Why should I have to wait until February to celebrate my love for all things red and pink and chocolate covered? Pink and red are, as I've learned from the Internet, an unpopular color combination. Why? I don't know. I've never been much for red on its own, but when you add a sweet shade of blush, fun fuchsia hue, or pop of bright pink, I'm suddenly all about it.

Now that I'm working from home, I have fewer opportunities to get dressed up cute during the week. This would make a perfect outfit for the office! I wore it to take Dago to physical therapy one afternoon recently, and I was certainly overdressed for the occasion. But I felt fly as heck. That's what it's all about! Wear what you want. Where you want. In the colors you want.
