I love a few colours but never knew how to wear them when I was young. Among them a colour I loved but was actually afraid to wear even if I knew how to and that was red: powerful, provocative, signifying life and all things lively to me. The Hermès Bolide in box leather in the appropriately named Rouge Vif was my first red accessory aquired over 2 years ago also here and here. My first red clothing item is a red dress a few years ago and I’ve yet to wear it but I will …. if it’s the last thing I do 🙂 The second red accessory is the Hermès cashmere/silk shawl from a few months ago, also here and here. I didn’t think of the two together at the time and this is the first pairing against a secure, tried and tested backdrop of navy. Gap Men cashmere jumper, Paule Ka wool mix boucle skirt and Sergio Rossi flat stretch boots at the top, pull on heels above for a slightly dressier version. The skirt is part of the update following a longer length and easier to wear style that suit me better.Pretty windy again but bright so no complaints from me – it felt positively Spring like! To avoid the dragged-through-a-hedge-backwards look, I like to keep my hair tucked into scarves on days like these. Maybe I should put weights in my skirt hem too 🙂
