No Hesitations

Top: H&M  |  Red blazer: c/o Daisy Rae Boutique (similar #1, similar #2, similar #3)  |  Shorts: Forever 21  |  Wedges: Target (shop)  |  Tote: ebags.com (shop)  |  Necklace: c/o Sway Chic

There are so many colors I feel like I have to avoid with red.  Cuz, you know, I have that weird fear of not wanting to look like popular holidays and such.  Red and green--Christmas.  Red, white, and blue--the American Flag.  Red and pink--Valentine's Day.  Red and yellow--McDonald's.  Even though I've pushed myself out of my comfort zone and worn all of those combos, I'm relieved to say that this current combo of red, white and grey was something I could easily get behind, no hesitations.

    I feel the sme way about those color combos and try hard not to look too much like a walking theme. You look fab and I love your necklace.

  3. I love red with black or brown (which you did with your bag and shoes). Certain shades of red look killer with dark taupe.

  5. I love how McDonald's made it to popular Holidays ;)
    But yay for the blazer and shorts combo!

  6. I love to play with red and try to break color boundaries. Red and salmon is a suitable replacement for red and pink. Teal in place of green. SO fun. (: Anyway, I'm jealous of that blazer, lady.

  8. Excellent color combination, I agree (red blazers are difficult in that way because I always want to pair mine with a white tee & dark jeans. And feel too American flag-y). Love the blazer with the shorts - all around comfortable and laid back, yet elegant.

  10. Hahah! Yes, I cannot bear to wear red/green or red/yellow (my school colors) together, but I do like red/white/blue and red/pink, and OF COURSE your pretty combo with the grey. :)

  22. Love your blog. You don't look like dressed for a holiday and certainly you don't look like you dressed for Mrs. Ronald.....

  23. Love this outfit! So cute. Seriously so funny that you worry about looking like holidays - I do that too! Sometimes I just have to be like "Whatever, Kenzie. Just wear it."

  24. I'm totally with you on avoiding red, white, and blue, but just yesterday I saw an ad with a woman wearing red, TAN, and blue. The tan made all the difference- it looked terrific. Maybe the way to avoid looking like anything familiar is to go with an extremely lighter or darker version of one of the colors.
