Ginger in red & pink

 {slip as dress, clutch, belt & blazer:  thrift  I  heels:  dsw  I  necklace:  h&m}
i felt surprisingly professional today despite the fact that i'm wearing a slip AS a dress instead of under a dress.  two slips actually - there's one under the coral one so as to not seem pervy.  that's right, right?  if i'm the one flashing my chonies i'm technically also a perv?  anyway back to being professional - it must have been the blazer.  i think ultimately you can throw a blazer over anything, like a bathing suit, and instantly feel like you’re going to go into that meeting and win big.  Or get the gig. or whatever happens in meetings where you’re wearing a blazer over a bathing suit. 

anyway, another pairing of the ever popular pink and red.  you love it don’t you?  me too.  the ONLY downside to this color combo is that i’m a redhead  (which isn’t to say that redheads cant wear red) – but i’m a redhead that blushes quite frequently.  you could even say at the drop of a hat or literally, like when someone coughs (thanks mom).  and when you put a ginger in red and pink and she blushes….well, lets just say red hair, red face, red blazer, coral dress = something to the effect of a human strawberry wearing a turquoise necklace and killer heels.  Holler. 

Also.  I’m going camping this weekend and I cant effing wait.  {Toyota jump}

That necklace is gorgeous! I love all the colours in your outfit too. I have some slips that I'd love to wear on the "outside" - for some reason I hadn't thought about wearing a slip underneath - seems so obvious now.

Love the combination of red and pink! I feel like on my next interview I should try the bikini and blazer thing too. You never know... might work?

Yay for gingers wearing red and pink! I always thought we weren't supposed to, but now I'm loving it :)
