Red HOT!

One of my favorite trends this holiday season is the color red. I love a great pop of red in any outfit to really make a statement. Even more so, there's NO outfit that can make a statement quite like a hot pair of great fitting red skinnies. From fall fashion show runways to holiday parties to a girls night out on the town, red pants are guaranteed to create a to-die-for outfit. And for those of you wondering what to pair with them, there's endless possibilities! Pair a great, low-cost pair like this with a sky-high pair of nude pumps, your best fitting white tank and a chic black blazer for a great day-to-night look! Accessorize with a pendant necklace, gold hoop earrings and stacks of gold bangles on one wrist for an effortless, trendy look!

For a more casual daytime approach, pair the same pair of skinnies with another pop of color or print, like this sheer, comfy top. Accessorize with a chunky scarf, a fun pair of earrings and your favorite pair of knee-high brown riding boots for a comfortable on-trend look to do lunch with the girls in!

For a great day-to-night look, pair your red skinnies with a denim button-down, layer with a fur vest and pair with a fun printed shoe like these. This outfit is cute and put together, but is casual or dressy enough for whatever event you might be making an appearance at!

Bottom line is, don't be intimidated by a bold pair of red skinnies. They're fun and festive and look great on anyone! You'll be sure to get lots of compliments and feel like a million bucks!

Where It All Started...

Since I was in elementary school, I've had a passion and an eye for all things fashion. I love keeping up with trends and taking fashion tips from celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively, Rachel Zoe, Lea Michele and Sarah Jessica Parker. My husband laughs at how often I watch award shows just for the fashion, or how often I buy fashion magazines for inspiration on the latest trends. I love mixing looks and finding unique pieces to wear with staple items to create fun and fashionable outfits for any occasion. Over the years, I've helped my friends style outfits and given tips and advice to those who may not be as obsessed with trends and styling as I am. In college, I lived with two of my best friends and we laughed at how often each of them disregarded their own closets and searched through mine to find outfits to wear. I loved helping them find cute combinations of their own pieces and mine, and both of them inspired me to continue to share my love of fashion with others. My time spent living in a house with them is the real inspiration for the title of my blog. I decided to start this blog to share my thoughts, advice, outfits, tips or any other fashion-related garb I decide might be worth sharing with you. Hope you enjoy!
