OOTD: Red & Black Together Again...

It is no secret to anyone who either knows me or has ever read my blog... I am a HUGE fan of virtually any red & black ensemble.  Red/White/Black ensembles rock, too!

Some call these "basics" but I think red is far too dramatic to be considered basic.  Don't you?

Today I opted for a wonderful skirt that I picked up from Ann Taylor LOFT last year.  HUGE fan of ATL.  If you've never browsed their stores or website... I cannot encourage you enough.

LOVE their classic and tailored styles.

How amazing is this skirt?  

I hear Taylor Swift singing...

I love my red leather skirt, too but I think I'm saving that one for the weekend.

I wear my black leather skirt to work regularly but I am not 100% convinced that a red one really works at the office.  Certainly one doesn't work without a blazer and today is just not a "layering day" here at all.

Pair it up with a simple black blouse so that the skirt remains the "star of the show" and I'm ready to go.

However... I just couldn't resist the opportunity to break out these babies...

I guess the skirt may not enjoy a "starring role" anymore?  Best supporting actress?

I only joined the Society of High Heel Lovers about a year ago but I am fully "in" now.  I have been a devotee to "conservative" heels for years but there is just something about a higher heel that I have come to adore.  I wear them several days a week now.

Speaking of the Taylor Swift lyrics bouncing around in my head... I even wore high heels when I took my niece to the Taylor Swift Concert at Cowboys Stadium a few months ago.

LOTS of stairs... LOTS of stairs.  I admit it... that one was probably a mistake but... in my defense... I was not the only Mom/Aunt there sporting her heels that night.  Hee Hee

Okay... enough of that... I'm on the clock...

Here the three are together...

That felt pretty good.  I am going to try to be more consistent with my OOTD posts again.  We'll see?

However, this one had to be quick, 11:00 am conference call so I need to refocus.

Have A Wonderful Day!
