Shades of Red

My mental shopping wish list is all about red right now - in all its glorious shades. The pretty pinks and blushes that work so well for summer and the brighter reds and deeper burgundies that are perfect for fall. This is a big deal for someone who only a few years ago refused to have anything at all in the pink/red/purple range because it was too "girlie" and loud. Here are some pieces that are giving me a case of the grabby hands right now -

Shopbop - blush

Shopbop - pink

Shopbop - red

Shopbop - burgundy

Late Summer: Take Five

Online browsing lets me virtually play dress-up and put together wishlist outfits. This gives me ideas on new pieces to add to my closet and inspiration on new ways to wear what I already own. Here are a couple outfit ideas that would work for late summer - all with just five pieces or less. They're all pretty much my style since they're cool but not too revealing ... and of course now I also have a bunch of new bags on my wishlist!
