I’m not big on dressing up in holiday colors, but when I wore this a few weeks ago I felt like I was celebrating Valentine’s Day early. And I hadn’t even meant to go all pink and red! That’s just how it came together. So I stashed the photos knowing that my unintentionally festive outfit could serve a secondary purpose on the upcoming holiday.

Are you a holiday dresser? Wearing pink or red today? On purpose or by accident?

    Cute outfit, I really should try pairing a cardigan with a pretty buttoned shirt sometime! I wear a lot of pink and purple and red anyway, but today I intentionally didn’t- I’m wearing a black dress with a bright green cardigan and checkered tights. I don’t actually have any issue with Valentine’s Day, I just wanted to stand out and feel fabulous.

    I put on a hot pink layering tee without even thinking about it this morning–but I’m also wearing black and brown and a bunch of other colors, so the effect isn’t very Valentiney anyway.

    I do enjoy taking guidance from holidays when it comes to color. Today I’m in a bright red top with black skirt, belt, and shoes. And I’m someone who *never* wears makeup, so I decided to switch it up and rock the bright red lips to match the top. It’s fun precisely because it’s so out of character, in this case.

    My coworkers are a little weirded out, but I think it looks great!

    I am so *not* a holiday dresser (not even a splash of green on St.Patrick’s Day), but I always love a great color combination like this. Pink and red with neutrals looks fab.

    yesterday was “wear red in support of humanism in medicine” day, so tons of people on campus were dressed in red. i would’ve dressed for the holiday anyway, so i feel like the humanism thing may have been more effective were it any day *other* than february 14th. =)
