Couple things about me...red is my power color and I'm so clumsy. So embarrassingly clumsy, like newborn giraffe levels of flailing and uncoordinated movements. So of course, I slammed my leg into my shower door rail on the night before I was going to shoot this look. The shower that I get in every day. The one that didn't magically become 2 inches higher overnight.
TR;DL Don't ever let me hold your baby or iPhone.
Thankfully, I had my poppy red Marc by Marc Jacobs dress to help me still feel like #TheBoss while my leg was turning a grim shade of blue (at least it matches my hair now so...silver lining?). Your power color isn't just a color that looks great next to your skin, it's a color that makes you feel confident and glow inside and out. I'm so excited to transition this LRD (little red dress) into fall too, black tights with booties and I'll probably still be too overdressed for L.A.'s version of autumn.
What else makes me feel confident? The perfect (and personal) accessories. I always wear my Jess Leigh moonstone and My Saint My Hero blessing bracelets, but I felt like I needed some balance (literally) to accentuate this simple-but-not-subtle pop of poppy dress. So I stacked my new favorite coin bangles (and what is a boho girl without coin jewelry?) from Bollywood Chic. The glimmer they add sparks something in this look that makes it even more dynamic.
From me to you - anklets are the new midi rings. If you live in a place that will be hot for...let's be honest MONTHS into Fall, top off your heeled sandals and booties with a glittering little accessory. This is my favorite '90s revival trend....wait, no 2nd favorite behind mood rings. These Seychelles shoes are already cute, shoegasm worthy tbh, but the anklet took them to the next level.
