Red + Cognac

Red and cognac may just be my favorite, easy color combination! These two colors always pair together so effortlessly to make a great outfit. Both colors are so rich and bright, I simply can’t say no to the pair! I’ve had this red top from Francescas’s for years and yet it is still a go to in my closet! These heels, however, are a more recent purchase from Target. The first time I saw these I passed them by without question, but after seeing them on someone else they started growing on me….so much so that I ran to Target one day on my lunch break to scoop up the very last size 6! I can hardly wait to wear these with some of my summer dresses, but for now jeans will have to do!

  4. Love the Francesca's top! When I used to work there I totally stocked up on blouses and jewelry, such cute stuff. Plus those heels are amazing, are they difficult get on? Are they comfy? Cause they would be perfect for Spring/Summer!!
