WIW 09.15 [seasons challenge: red poppies]

For the second day of the challenge, I chose the red poppies (#3).

[Challenge info and guidelines posted here.]

This was an extra casual day -- mostly at home doing chores, watching tv, and also a quick bite out. My initial thought was to do a column of gray (since I don't really wear olive) with a red chunky knit hat to mimic the vibrant color of the flowers atop the tall muted stems. But after scouring the house I couldn't find my hat! We recently re-did our closet and I still don't have everything sorted and put away, so hopefully it'll turn up as I finish with that. So I shortened the gray column to just boots/jeans and instead of the hat chose a vibrant red sweater. Long silver earrings for a little added vertical integrity, and leo clutch because I just liked how it looked :) Simple and easy peasy!

    Love the red cozy sweater, and the juxtaposition of a classic pullover with the moto/cargo vibe of the pants.  And poppies --- gotta love their vibrant boldness!

    I hope you find your hat!

    Thanks ladies! I was very happy in this remarkably simple casual outfit, perfect for the day ^^

    Beth Ann, the power of classics yes? And, although not classic, these jeans seem to go with just about everything, while the sweater I usually struggle with!

    You look great in red! I can picture the hat but the outfit works just as well without it.

    Stunning, Aida.

    The perfect outfit for a casual day. You captured the vibrant color of the poppies perfectly in your sweater. You made it your own by swapping out olive for gray - good choice!

    Thanks very much for the comments everyone!

    That poppy red color is stunning on you. I especially like the jeans. They give a faux distressed look,and look much more appealing on you than on the model.

    Thanks Joy! I am glad Angie recommended these jeans; from the stock photo I wouldn't have been inclined to try them, but I loooove them.
