THE DRESSING ◽ TIPS
A Touch of Red
by Marcy Lytle
Red pillow – What about a bold statement on your bed or sofa or porch chair, or somewhere – in a pillow! How fun would a pop of red be in your home décor with these fun pom-pom pillow covers.
Amazon sells the pillows and these covers. I recently purchased a couple and enjoy switching out the covers instead of buying more pillows – so fun!
We all need a boost in the clothing department, would you agree? I, for one, am not interested in buying more loungewear. I’m so tired of my walking shoes, even though I’m incredibly thankful for them these past many months! And it’s time now to quit buying more sweaters and coats, unless they’re on clearance and we need them for next year! So…since it’s the month we celebrate Valentine’s Day and all things romantic (or not), we thought it would be fun to focus on the color red – in accessories, that is. No big splurges on fancy dresses or outfits (unless YOU want to), but just a touch of red to make us smile as we prepare for a date, invite a friend, or stay in and enjoy all things fancy and fun because we need it! And red is a color you can wear in every season. Would you agree?
Red Sneakers – I love these. And they look so comfy for the long walks, now that the snow is maybe thawing (in some spots!) Think of these as a staple for now and spring. They’re cute with denim, skirts, or all sorts of options – as a pop of color to brighten your step! From JCPenney!
Red Glasses – The blue light glasses are great, so I hear, for tired eyes that stare at the screen all day! So why not wear red? This pair from Amazon is so cute! I love colored glasses. Maybe you will, as well.
Red ring – why not? Sometimes, a new ring makes us smile and feel like we’re dressed up – just because we have something new on our finger!
Check out this unique style for a ring you purchase all for yourself. It’s affordable and so cool – and will add such a fun touch to any outfit!
Red candle – Paddywax is one of my favorite brands of candles and they come in such pretty elegant containers, like this one in the Cranberry Rose scent.
Just add a touch of red and an aroma that’s pleasant, on your desk or in your bathroom, for a fun February scent of something red.
Red pajamas – After all, pajamas are the comfiest, and why not treat yourself to some love with these whimsical heart ones that will make you feel loved?
Add a robe, your cozy slippers, and settle in for a romantic comedy this month for two, or for you!
Red watch – I want this one! Isn’t this Anne Klein red leather strap watch the most beautiful? On your arm, a new watch will make you feel like a million bucks. When’s the last time you bought yourself a colorful watch?
If you don’t like red but prefer pink, then go for that. Or whatever hue makes you feel cheery and loved. We often dress on the outside how we feel on the inside. So dress in color and look forward to spring…while the month of February is here right now.
