Red is one of those colors that just compliments my skin color so wonderfully. The same for corals, pinks and oranges. They just make me look and feel all warm and bronze-y on the inside which matches all this melanin on the outside. 😉 Red makes me feel feminine, passionate, strong. It’s the kind of color that ignites something in you. It is my weapon of choice. I rolled out of bed feeling beautiful and strong, leggings, tshirt and all.
This jacket was $6.99. Yup, you read that correctly. I found this gem and another stunning coat (there’ll be a post coming soon for that one) at my local Value Village thrift store. I love everything about it. I love that it’s light almost like a linen blend which means that I can layer and this can actually stay on instead of taking it off like regular jacket. I love the length. It’s quite long for my 5’2″ frame and I’m going to get it hemmed a bit eventually to tailor it more to my shape. It’s made by Indigo Moon and they normally use fun appliqués and embroidery on their pieces. Tossing this coat on with a simple black legging and shirt outfit is pretty much my lazy way of spicing things up a bit. My boyfriend is in town and we took the train a few stops to find food and explore Columbia City.
This is one of those dram purchases that I’m hoping will last me for years!
