Days of December 6 {Red}


If there was one color I was told I could never wear as a redhead, it was... red. Well, purple and orange and yellow and fluorescents (it was the 80's) and I guess most colors outside of the earth tones. This may have something to do with why I have trouble branching away from anything outside of... brown. 

Leave it to my little girl to help me spread my color wings. That and all her hand-me-downs. These clothes came mostly from a family with three beautiful blondies and another little girl who has lovely olive skin, brown eyes and hair like dark chocolate. Needless to say, the colors have been slightly sunnier and have included a lot more purple than my redhead counselors would have deemed appropriate. 

But she looks fine.

And red, you can wear it girl. You can wear it from head to toe for all I care.
Starting with the toes.

This week's theme at The View From Here is {Red}


  1. When I was young, my mother told me that there are two kinds of women in the world: those that wear red, and those that don't. She never said exactly what the difference was, but yet I knew that she didn't approve of those that did. I try to wear red whenever I can.
