Red + black + a little bit of shine

Happy Valentine’s Day! ♥

And besides my sweetie husband, you know what else I’m loving? The ability to breathe! Yes, I’m feeling much better, thanks to Advil Cold & Sinus. And some TLC from my husband. 🙂

The dress is my new one from my “Back to Basics” shopping list, and it’s a leeettle bit shorter than I expected (I ordered it online). I went with it, anyway (especially as it wasn’t a teaching day) but toned down the shortness of the skirt with black tights, flats, and a long-sleeved cardigan. I would have felt too on display in heels.

For accessories, I tied my polka-dotted scarf to look more like an infinity scarf, and I threw in the shiny purple belt to add a bit of color dimension to the red-and-black look.

For Day 4 of the “Take One, Pass It On” style challenge, I recycled my black flats.
