Friday's Fancies: When in Doubt

Friday always calls for a certain level of celebration, if you ask me. And after the week that's been had around here, make that a double. Step one in my hopes of overcoming this week, is sharing a new Friday's Fancies with you. This week's theme is 'red,' and honestly, that says "kick up your heels, let down your hair, paint your nails, and hit the town" to me! I've found that red can truly be a girl's best friend- there are tons of ways to style this vibrant color to fit your personality. Seeing as I usually subscribe to the more is more philosophy, here are a few simple tips for making quite the impression in your favorite shade of red!

Red shoes (flats or heels) manage to spice up any outfit that falls a little short of fabulous.

Make it yours, and own it. Incorporate red into your wardrobe to fit your personality. Isn't that what fashion is about anyway?!

I am rockin' some red nails and toes today! I wear a lot of neutrals so adding red to an outfit just gives it the pop of color that it needs. Love wearing red!

Debby said...

Love your outfit inspiration. I can totally see you wearing that!! I can't pull of red really well so I go for more of a cranberry hue in clothing. I love to add it via toenails, clutches, shoes, belts, etc!! Have a great weekend, Julie!! xo

Loving the Friday's Fancies picks! Red is such a fierce color, and the outfits you picked out are so cute! They are the perfect mix of fierceness, while still being cute, and not too over powering!!
