Do Not Dread Pink and Red!

Happy Hump Day Everyone!
Or as son2 calls it...the last ever day of high school!!
The weather has been kind of cool here as of late,
 which is a bit strange, 
but I am not complaining. 
 I pulled out my trusty $6.51 dress to sport around in.
I know some people are afraid of the colors pink and red mixed together,
 but it is a great color combination.
  The colors brighten up any skin tone 
and 
it's just plain fun.
With the big statement scarf,
 I kept the jewelry on the hands with a big silver ring
 and 
lots of silver bracelets.
 

Are you a fan of pink and red?
Like it, but afraid to wear it yourself?

This is pink and red done really well! I must admit it scares me, I had to stretch for the February EBEW red and pink challenge. Love the dress, what an awesome $6 find! Your bracelets are a ton of fun too!

I have been loving pink and red together, but I haven't worn it yet myself. You look great!

$6? Damn!

The weather has been on and off here too :( I put away my winter clothes in March (big mistake!) definitely been relying on layering and scarves!

Rebecca said...

Congrats to your son! Brett, wonderful display of colors. Pink and red are seldom seen paired up and you've shown it can in fact be done!

I like pink and red a lot! Everyone's in red stripes lately... need to get some!

I think the last time I did this colour combo was for Valentine's Day EBEW (like Cara) but I do really love it. That dress is such a great (and affordable) wardrobe essential! Yay congrats to son 2- you must be a proud momma!

Don't think I've ever tried to wear pink and red. Red is a color that's practically non-existent in my closet. Adorable dress for a great price!

jennie said...

You must have the funnest closet ever! I freaking love all of your accessories!! The cluster of bracelets is to die for!! Congrats to son2!

Laura said...

I need to go shopping with you sometime! I dont own one red thing. I think it has to be the right red for me with my coloring. You look great in red/pink. I would not even think of these colors together.

love jenny xoxo said...

But I like pink and red - should figure out more outfits for that combo

XOXO

Such a cute look, Brett!! Tell son2 that this is one high school teacher who celebrates with him!!

Lynne DeVenny said...

I love the pink and red - and your shoes!

Loving the pink and red! Took me forever to wear that combo after years of mocking girls in the 80's when I was a teenager.. Man, how times and my attitude has changed. LOL.

A couple of my kids will be finishing up high school next year and I am so not ready to let go, but you look sharp in that combo. I love the dress!
