A Splash Of Color

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I know I am! Yesterday I spent an entire day in my pajamas trying to recuperate from an exhausting week, and, now, I feel fully refreshed.

Earlier last week, it was a cool sunny day, and I thought that it was a perfect day to wear my new coat. (I got it in December when I was in Seattle, but weather was so hot here in SoCal, that I could not wear anything heavier than a light jacket!)

I  fell in love with this coat for its clean and tailored look with a feminine touch. I always try to keep my outfits simple. It is no secret that I am obsessed with black, but I also love a splash of color to make it a little more fun, especially that I was going to a semi-business meeting with a few fabulous ladies. So, I wore an Alice+Olivia red dress (similar here), Anne Klain black coat (similar here), black Chanel pumps and accessorized the outfit with a red Michael Kors handbag (similar here).
Unless I am crazy about a particular design or fabric, I usually don't spend much money on the clothing, but when it comes to shoes, it's a different story. I believe that shoes can make a simple and inexpensive outfit look fabulous. On the other hand, low quality shoes (which lose shape and get worn out so quickly!) can make a beautiful dress lose its charm. 

I wear these Chanel pumps I got as a gift 8 years ago (no joke!) non-sparingly, but they are and always will be classy and fabulous.
There is nothing wrong if the dress would peek from under the coat. 

Blue sky and bright colors always cheer me up. When I'm happy, I smile. Smiles are contagious, and people around me smile back...

Have a wonderful rest of the day!
