Cherry Bomb

Yesterday I woke up and promptly blew $200 on a pair of completely unnecessary, sky high electric coral wedge heels. What? It was a Monday and I needed retail therapy. This is a safe space, remember? No judging.

Anywho, now that those shoes are mine, I am obsessed with them. It’s the color - besides HOT PINK, I can’t think of a brighter, more vibrant, sexy, LOOK AT ME shade... would you call it red? Or orange? Orangey-red? Coral? Whatever it is, it’s gorgeous and I need more of it in my life (and wardrobe).


I think I need a red bag to match... maybe this Tory Burch shoulder bag or this Marc Jacobs clutch? Both super sassy and in that gorgeous bright leather - who could resist?




Speaking of things I cannot resist... I think I need this Kate Spade ring. It’s flowery and frilly and fun and would look adorable with almost anything when the weather finally warms up!



Now, I am not a fashion nightmare and I follow all the fashion rules... meaning I know I could never wear one of these dresses with my new red shoes or my future red purse. BUT I’m swooning over them nonetheless - look at those cute little hearts embroidered on the Topshop dress! And I love the pattern on the Tory Burch one!




You could easily wear one of those dresses to work with a little cardigan thrown over it, but if you’re looking for something slightly more work appropriate, why not this silk Equipment blouse? The button-down style is just right for the office, and I’m telling you, this color goes with anything - black slacks, white slacks, jeans, you name it. I would wear it with a grey pencil skirt and some yellow heels :)



As I write this, I am worried that the color pink is going to think I am cheating on it. NEVER. I will never leave my beloved pink. But a little flashy red is fun, isn’t it?


I can’t wait for my new shoes to arrive!!!
