We had a theme dressing day at work yesterday - "caliente," based on the vacation spread in this month's catalog. We were tasked with wearing red and bold florals (though if there are two things I don't have much represented in my wardrobe, it's red and bold florals).
Found this red shell amongst my Ebay items and paired it with my black skirt, which seemed more summery than pants. I needed a jacket, since we aren't allowed to go sleeveless, so this jacket was really my only option. It sort of brings the pattern element into play, and it's sort-of-kind-of blue. Softens the red, at least, and the tie dye says vacation in my mind. I originally planned to do black strappy sandals, but the weather was anything but caliente.
Although I wouldn't have chosen this outfit by myself, I do like how it came out. That is the fun of a challenge, I guess!
