This post is a little more personal for me than just great styles at a great prices…don’t get me wrong those are definitely here for sure! But February…a month that most people dread because of the dreary, cold weather has been, for a very long time, an actual favorite of mine. And it’s just a bonus that the vibrant, fun colors of pink and red are so prominent this month…everywhere of course…but especially in fashion.
But before we get to my style quest I will let you in on why February is good with me despite the extra gloomy of the weather. Especially since all of you that know me are aware that I absolutely love summer and am not too fond of the winter months (to put it mildly).
So why do I like February so much you ask? Well, it all started when I was younger when Valentine’s Day was always fun because my mom always found a way to make the day special for all of us in any small way she could. It then continued into my teen years because of the hope for new love (which usually didn’t pan out, of course!). But it all worked out when one special day in February almost 34 years ago, I actually met the love of my life…my wonderful, gorgeous husband and we had our first date a few days later (and the rest ,as they say, is history!). And then after many difficult years of waiting and being told it wasn’t possible the most precious miracle of my life ….our son…was born in February! Our amazing son is older now and is marrying a wonderful girl that was also born in …that’s right, you guessed it…February! So as you can see it is a month full of happy memories and events for me and that’s why it holds such a special place in my heart.
Speaking of hearts… there is one more significant thing in February for me…it is the American Heart Association’s American Heart Health Month and the Go Red for Women campaign. I am a heart attack survivor and live with heart disease every day and so you will see a few items on my style list today that benefit the AHA.
So with all that said…I am obsessed with all things red and pink this month- and of course some crisp, clean white thrown into the mix adds the perfect touch! They are vibrant colors that can indeed perk up the darker dreary days of this month…so you can’t go wrong. So I have gone on my monthly quest and included a list of cute, stylish and most importantly affordable colorful fashions. And this season it is not only acceptable but downright fashion-forward to wear your pink and red items together. Now I haven’t done it yet but am certainly going to give it a try! And you should too!
The piece that really started the red obsession for this month was the all these photos I was seeing of the RED LEATHER MOTO JACKET and so my quest began:
I really love the WHITE BLOUSE and RED JACKET look the best so I went on a quest for that look but one that I could afford…and here is the outfit I found:
