Stroke of Red


|The Day|

I woke up at the crack of dawn, well almost. It was pretty early, around 6am and the sun had yet to rise. I love waking up early and having the potential to maximize my productivity for the day. And, boy did I get a lot done. I spent the early morning working on the blog ( there are some surprises coming up), then mid morning I went to prep the location for a photo shoot I was styling. Early afternoon, I shot these photos. There was this white wall by a construction site I was driving by and immediately I became obsessed with the idea of using it as a backdrop. That’s how it always happens, I’ll be going about my day and come across a perfect little gem. I may not immediately shoot there but I catalog it for a later date. This is exactly what happened with this wall. It was a big blank canvas waiting to be painted on and it worked so well with the splash of my bright red dress contrasting it.


|The Outfit|

I’ve pretty much been on a hunt for a pair of over the knee boots since the end of summer. It’s soooo hard to find the perfect pair but I found them! You don’t even want to know what I had to go through with UPS to get these babies but nonetheless I was thrilled to finally add them to my winter wardrobe. A great pair of over the knee boots can up the level of any look, it instantly becomes a dope outfit. Trust me, when I tell you they are your winter season secret weapon. I don’t even know if I need to talk about the rest of the look. A cozy sweater dress and gold accessories are all you need to complement this boots. * Lay Tip : If you struggle with accessorizing buy tons of gold jewelry and play around with adding a few pieces to your outfits. It goes with everything and adds instant chicness. Trust me.*  Let me know your secret weapon in your winter wardrobe in the comments and scroll down to shop the look.
