Classic combination

Red and white is definitely a go-to, especially in the summer, and even more so with a touch of nautical flare. I know I've done it several times in the past, but I also know it's been far too long since this top and skirt have been worn; hence their joyful reunion.

  1. Red is my favorite real color to wear! Such a gorgeous skirt!

  2. I know I've probably said it a thousand times, but I'll say it a thousand times more over the life of your blog, I'm sure - red is your colour. I can't think of any shade that suits you more.Granted, I am biased towards red; it's one of only two non-neutral colours that I enjoy wearing on occasion (with the other being navy.) But still, I think it's fair to say that there is a definite reason that red and white are a go-to for you and really, you should never, ever doubt that instinct :)

  3. Red and white definitely compliment each other well!! I should pair them together more often, but I don't have much of either color, so that makes it hard ;)

  4. Classic indeed! Love the skirt with this crisp button down and the cute little anchor necklace!

  5. This is such a brilliant colour combo on you. And I can't get over the awesomeness of your necklace!!!!!

  17. Great !!
    There is something very laid back yet elegant about that white button down shirt…. its difficult to find the perfect one, but I think you have .

  18. Oh Lyddie, red and white together on you like this is so beautiful! I just love it! Your anchor necklace really caught my eye, too.

  19. Such a pretty, classic combo! I have a similar (although shorter, not work-friendly) red skirt but I need just the right white top to go with it. So many I find are so sheer they need something under it, which I'd prefer not to have to wear in the summer!
