Do you get bored with red after Christmas? I often do. It just loses some of its appeal by the time Christmas decorations come down. This year I was actually very good with taking down my decorations and got rid of everything by January 6th. I often kept them a week or two longer, not because I love them so much but because I was being lazy and it is definitely not as exciting to put them away as it was to put them up in December. Although it is not a pleasant task, the consolation prize is getting back, my suddenly so much bigger, Living Room!
Isn't is funny how the winter is just starting in January, but with the retail cycle always throwing us couple of months ahead of the calendar, it suddenly feels like we should be already thinking about spring? It is silly of course, and I am still hoping to do a lot of skiing and ice skating this year.
But to get away from the wintery coziness of the deep reds I decided to pair my scarlet Brora sweater with pink, including liberty print perfect shirt, pink Valentina shoes and pink Banana Republic necklace. I was quite happy with the way this outfit turned out and it did not feel too wintery.
That's all folks!
Are you already thinking spring in your sartorial choices or are you still deep in winter mode? Do you associate red sweaters with Christmas?
Please share, it would be no fun without you!!!
