Seeing Red

I can’t stop wearing my red pants.

 

Pants – Len Druskin, Jacket – Nordstrom, Shoes – JCrew

Perhaps it’s because, sub-consciously, I realize that this is probably the one and only season I’ll be sporting them, and the bargain shopper in me wants to get my use out of them.

Maybe it’s because I’m discovering how versatile they are, and that there are tons of ways I can wear them.

I’m not normally a wearer of red, so perhaps I like that they’re different than anything else in my closet.

Whatever the case, you’ll likely be seeing a lot of them this season if you’re a regular reader of this blog.

By the way, notice anything missing on this hand? My wedding ring disappeared from my finger about a week and a half ago. I finally gave up looking for it and started the insurance paperwork to make my claim, which I’m finding to be quite the chore – they don’t make it easy to get that money.

What’s in your closet that gets worn the most?

    I lost my stone once. Funny – they were super easy to work with for me! However, I didn’t get the “check” – I just did an even exchange. I used Diamonds Direct (the mvc jewler… think I have the name right). They were awesome to work with and I was thankful that they worked with my insurance company already
