Milking my red hair for all it’s worth by dressing up to make it stand out as much as possible. This means a lot of black, gray and white, and the occasional pop of color that, for me, is a no-fail way to make a seemingly simple outfit look more interesting than it actually is. Outerwear in black is also always classic.
My love for red includes all fifty shades (lol), but right now, I’m particularly loving the super bright kind of red that matches most of my lipstick, and the darker shades of oxblood that is a wee bit more understated than most reds we come across on a daily basis.
This morning, I stumbled upon some older photos of myself, way back when I had really long, light ash brown hair. I looked so different, and I could see why I used to only stick to dainty floral prints and cutesy clothes. It’s amazing how hair color can instantly change your overall look.
Another interesting story from this morning - the first thing I heard from our household helper was that my mom ordered me to eat some leaves. Half-awake me went all like, WHAAAT? And then I found out later on that my mom bought arugula (my fave, btw).
Totally reminded me of that time when I asked her to buy Lays and Ruffles potato chips, and got actual lace and ruffled ribbons instead. Classic!
