Paint the Town Red

I actually wore this exact outfit minus the red coat for my Christmas lunch with my office, and it was one of my favorite outfits of 2012 despite the fact that I wasn't able to take pictures immediately. I felt a little out of place wearing red pants to court, but it was 1) Friday, 2) almost Christmas, and 3) otherwise professional minus the red, so I rationalized it in my mind. I've been dying to wear my red pants again, so I busted out this same ensemble and added the red coat for this blistery 50-60 degree week. I know I'm such a cry baby that I'm freezing cold in 50-60 degrees when everyone else in the country is thankful to hit 40 at this time of year, but it is REALLY out of character for Miami to be this cold! After 4 years living here, my blood has definitely thinned and I'm much more susceptible to feeling cold in not-cold weather. I'm linking up with Mix & Match Fashion for "What I Wore to Work" - I love seeing how everyone else dresses for work and I can't wait to get some new ideas.

  7. Omigosh, I love how when you're wearing the coat it looks like you're wearing an all red outfit and then you removed it and BAM - new outfit. I'm impressed that you are comfortable wearing red pants to court!

    xo, alison*elle

  8. Lol don't be too impressed - I only wore them to court once, a few days before Christmas, so I didn't look too out of place. I wore them again here on a day I was just in the office :) I'd be afraid to wear them on a regular non-holiday day at court!

  9. I love all the red together, it reminds me of that super hot suit Blake Lively wore. And yeah, suck it up baby, I'd kill for 60 degrees ;)

  17. I wish I had the whole set! The year my parents gave the necklace to me they also gave me the matching bracelet and IDK why but I asked them to return it! What was I thinking?!?! I just recently bought a dupe bracelet on ebay for like $2 so hopefully that will fill my void
