Seeing Red + WIWT Monochrome



Morning ladies today I wanted to talk about red accessories.  A real game changer in bringing an outfit to life & adding a much needed pop of colour.

If you're anything like me your colour palette no matter what the season will stick with the much loved neutrals of navy, black, grey, khaki & white.  Yes I might occasionally add the odd splash of colour but generally no matter what the weather you'll find me in these neutral colours.

However, one item I bought last year that was a real game changer in terms of making these colours come to life was a pair of red sandals.  Real game changers that I often teamed with a suede clutch & wore A LOT!

This year I've upgraded the sandals to the below beauties.  A fab open toe sandal that has a little bit of detailing & not too high a heel making them pretty much wearable for most occasions.  These together with my red quilted ballet pumps & cross body bag are all I need for most occasions when I want to add a pop of colour.  Although that's not to mean I couldn't be tempted by a higher heel or even a pair of trainers & with that in mind I thought I'd put together my edit of the best red footwear & bags currently on the high street above.  As always just click on any of the above images for further details.

Back to today & it's a monochrome & stripe kind of day.  A perfect example of an outfit that would be perfect for adding a splash of red.

So ladies what are your thoughts on red accessories?  Are you a fan & already own a pair/s of shoes & a bag or two?  Maybe you're on the lookout for a pair of new shoes or bag & are tempted to invest? Or perhaps you're not a fan of wearing bright colours so have yet to invest.  If this is the case seriously give it a try.  They don't feel like you're wearing something bright like a shirt & really will make your outfits come to life.  In fact think of them like leopard print & a new neutral.  Seriously you'll be amazed at how useful they are & just how much you can't live without them.

Don't forget today's the last day to grab 25% off everything over at Boden.  Simply click here & use code 6T2C at the checkout & if you need any inspiration my top picks are here.
