Red, white, gray, and Pinterest...

Today I'm sharing one of my favorite color combinations: red, gray, and white.  And, evidently, I'm not the only one who likes the combination. This is an outfit that I pinned over a year ago, then suddenly a few months back, lots of others started pinning it as well. There have been so many re-pins, that I got a notice from Pinterest saying I could now buy the Pin? I don't even know what that means, and I had no idea you could do that. Has that happened to any of you?

So, what is it about this look I like...

...I'll tell you.

1. In my opinion, it's hard to go wrong with red. If you've known me for any amount of time, then you know red is my favorite. I'm drawn to it like a moth to a flame. It pairs well with many other colors and it looks good on most everyone. Even in today's neutral world of decorating, I still have a red dining room that I can't bring myself to paint--I feel I would miss it terribly.

2. I'm a teacher. Do you know a teacher who doesn't own at least one cardigan? I can honestly say I don't,  and most of us have one in every color of the rainbow thanks to Target and Old Navy.

3. A white layering piece is a staple. The added femininity of the ruffle and covered buttons makes me wish I owned this exact top.

4. The accessories are timeless. A classic, traditional handbag that can be carried until the zippers break and a simple watch that can be casual or dressy.

5. A clean cut basic shoe that you can mix and match with several looks is a great investment.

And there you have it...the breakdown of my most re-pinned pin.

Pinterest always comes through when I'm trying to create a new outfit from my old clothes. And who doesn't like a new look that's free? The next time we talk fashion, I'll show you one of my favorite Pinterest-created looks.

Have a fantastic Friday!!
