i'm coming up on infra-red

yikes! it's totally strange to see myself wearing so much red. i don't do well with red usually, i feel it's too strong and overwhelming. last time i probably wore so much red must have been at the age of 3 or 4. mom used to love dressing me and my sister in red. anyway, this skirt is what started this whole madness. i initially had my eyes set on a gorgeous beige accordion pleat skirt at zara, but couldn't find it in our store. i couldn't find it in belgium either, it was all sold out in this color and i was actually debating whether i should spend 50 euros on a skirt. that seemed kinda expensive. and then i found this one at h&m for only 15 euros. i am addicted to h&m by the way, and because we still don't have one yet in our neck of the woods, i take every chance i get when i travel abroad to buy something there. didn't have a clue this morning what to wear with this skirt, but luckily i remembered i had just received this top as a gift, and it was a perfect match. everyone at work kept complementing me on my dress, not realizing these were separates. and then, to top it all off i threw in my heart shaped sunnies.

  2. I don't think it's too much red, it's nearly perfect :) Love the fifties vibe of this top!
