Yellow Week Goes Red

Today is Go Red for Women Day, so in addition to my signature yellow piece I added lots of red.
Andie at What Andie Wears is going red throughout the whole month of February to help raise awareness that heart disease is the number one killer of women.

I'm worried that heels on black ice might be the number two killer. I had a fall today and I was not at all happy as I slipped and ended up crashing into a pile of ice covered snow. I may have to resign to only wearing my snow boots every time I set foot outside until this wretched ice melts.

I went to the thrift store today with my numerous bags of clothing I cleared out. So most of the shop stuff is gone -- but I held on to a few just in case anyone was to be interested. I deliberately went to the thrift store without any cash on hand to keep me from bringing anything home with me. But I failed; there was a cute avocado green vintage pyrex bowl. It was four dollars, and I scrounged two dollars in change up from the bottom of my purse and made sad puppy dog eyes at the cashier.

Speaking of sad puppy dogs, I'm not sure why Chloe is looking so upset here, I just told her to "Stay" - which she did not, by the way.

Ha! The no. 2 killer of women made me chuckle! I hope you don't slip... at least not with a lens and your camera in hand! eek!
The red and yellow is so cheerful and I like how the gray anchors the entire look.

Tamuna said...

hahah Chloe is ADORABLE!!! And you look GORGEOUS in red!

P.S. I really like the vintage green bowl, i think it's those cute flowers.

I am having the same problem, heels on ice do not mix

kileen said...

Rachel said...

Those heels are great, but do be careful! Also, your dog is darling. :D

AH, I'M LOOOVING YOUR COLOUR-THEMED WEEKS. THEY'RE SO FIERCE.

Why am I shouting? I don't know. Maybe because you're RIDICULOUSLY fierce. Maybe.

But yeah, I absolutely love this look. The patterns work so well. I mean, seriously. You cannot go wrong with polka dots.

Have a red-tastic (hah) week!

Oh, I love the polka dots with the argyles! Take care walking on ice.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Oh so so so cute! Seriously. I forgot how much I liked red and yellow until I saw this :) And grey too. Win!
I hope you're okay, my coworker had to go to the ER today for falling on the ice. And I think I have those bowls in yellow and white.

Loving this outfit so much! the leggings are so cute!
Can't help to smile when reading your story. the number two killer LOL. maybe walking in heels are not suitable during winter days, but you look great in those boots!

Nice outfit! Stay safe on the ice xx

Krystal said...

I love when chloe makes an appearance :)

Amelie said...

Those tights are a serious trip. They remind me of Alice in Wonderland. It's good that you can celebrate Go Red for Women Day. I don't own anything red, and I'm not sure why. I think my mother once told me that I don't look good in red, and it's probably the worst advice she's ever given me.

Great way to incorporate red. I almost forgot that it was wear red day yesterday until I turned on the local news and saw all the anchors wearing red of some sort.

Kavery said...

I know you like yellow a lot but red also looks fab on you. It makes everything look warm and lovely.

Anne said...

You are so much braver than I for wearing heels in snow and ice at all! I've slipped one too many times, so I rarely venture out in anything but boots.

I love all the patterns and textures you have going on in this outfit, and your cardigan is very cute!

Kristin said...

Love the red and those fabulous argyle tights!

Ali said...

AWE you look like you're about to go on a picnic! In the snow! With your dog (who you are obviously abusing, who would tell their dog to stay?)! You could own little red riding hood any day.

I love love your pattern mixing with the cardigan and tights! You are so bold. :D and my favorite. I LOVE YOUUUU

jamie-lee said...

Aww you look sweet! I think that's a good idea, leaving your wallet at home, I should probably exercise that more often!

Camille said...

The bruised ego is the worst part about the fall for me hehe. Hope you don't have any other falls !
Yesterday I had to walk home from church (about 4 blocks) after pancake breakfast with my 2 year old and 4 year old. I was not prepared. I didn't fall but I was wearing high heel fashion boots ! Plenty of sidewalks were not shoveled and others were so slushy. I am looking forward to April. My favourite season (and my birthday) !!

What a great way to raise awareness. I love your red hat and the polka dots. Bright red is also one of my favourite colours.

Love the bright colors and tights! Aww Chloe looks so sad and cute!

Ashley said...

You look AMAZING in red! Actually, you look amazing in anything. I can't get over how gorgeous you are. I love your beauty mark!

I still live at home, and I'm proud to say my house owns a bowl exactly like that! My parents got married in the late 70's and we still use many of their household wedding gifts, so I guess we have a lot of vintage things!

TrophyBoutique said...

awwwwww. Pretty dang cute! And your dog is too. Ha.

I love what you have going on here. All kinds of coolness, that's what.

The Fancy Teacup said...

Yay for red! You look so cute! I'm glad you didn't get hurt from falling, beware of the ice and heels, not the greatest combination. I really like your skirt and earrings...how did you make those earrings? ("Made by Me")

By the way, I was inspired by your yellow week and finally decided to wear something mustard for my latest dolled up post. Thanks for the stylish inspiration.

much love.

elnajay said...

What a fun outfit! I especially love the hat...how adorable. I've also been really liking your yellow looks, as it's a color that I enjoy but never seem to wear often.

And careful with those heels! Spring and cute shoes will be here soon, I hope...

Elekon said...

oh wow! gorgeous! LOVE this hat!
