Friday Five: All the Red

friday five(1)

The first Friday of 2018 is here! I’m going to make it through the work week after all. It was only four days and I totally wish they were all this way but unfortunately that is not my reality. So glad you’re here today friends because I have something special to share with my faves. It’s number one so please check it out!

One of my favorite colors is red and yet if you peek into my closet you would find scant amounts of it. I have a couple of red winter coats but other than those items the reds are surely lacking. Why? This is the question I ask myself. Is it that I can’t find red pieces I like or do I shy away because of its bold which draws attention to myself? Hmmm…food for thought!

But I love Christmas with all of the red everywhere. I adore the reds and pink that we are starting to see for Valentine’s Day. In honor of red I’m sharing some red favorites for this first Friday of 2018.


The Blended Blog is hosting a Spread the Love gift exchange! How fun, right? It’s about the love, friends. Follow this link to participate.


I love this red blazer from Banana Republic but it doesn’t come in petites. Boo…I would love to mix this little number with other pieces in my wardrobe.

Have I ever mentioned that my mom’s nickname is Chick? Most people think that’s her real name. When I saw this little decor item it made me think of her.

My grandma’s favorite bird was the cardinal. I’ve noticed a few lately in my neighborhood and it immediately made me think of her. She was an incredible lady! I thought I might want to collect a few items with cardinals to remind me of her. Loved this photo of one in the snow.

Have a great weekend, friends! I plan to back on Monday with TBB Asks post. Want to participate? Here’s the questions and we’ll be having a linkup.

    • I think I've seen you often in red and it looks great on you!
  • Oh that houndstooth skirt! I love red with that pattern.
    • Perfect combo isn't it? I love it so much!
  • That red blazer is calling your name. I can't believe it doesn't come in petite, grrrr, hehe.
    • Guess what? It fits even though it's not a petite. I had to go back! You might see it soon!
  • Natalie A.
    I love red, too. I don't have much red in my closet either! I really love the home décor item that makes you think of your mom! Have a happy weekend!
    • Thank you, Natalie! I get so homesick during the holidays but also thankful for the memories I have from growing up. Surely I am blessed!
  • Red is one of my favorite colors!
    • I think red would look wonderful on you, Laura!
  • Happy Friday! I am right there with on wishing the work week was a 4 day week all the time. Red is probably the color I own the least and I'm not really sure why. I hope you have a great weekend! Sierra~Beautifully Candid
    • Yes, please to a 4 day work week! Maybe someday it will happen.
  • Ohh! Love that outfit with the red sweater! I don't usually dress up that much for work but this outfit makes me want to!
    • I love the opportunity to get dressed up but also be able to wear a casual vibe. I guess I like options when I go to work. :)
  • Love that you themed this with a colour! So creative! I wish I had more red in my closet, and I'm working on that. Also, I need that mother cluckers sign for my new place...I also have a red cardinal that sits on our centrepiece at the table, now I will think of you!
    • I love that you are sentimental. Makes me love you even more. Hugs, friend!
  • I love red too and don't own a lot in my wardrobe either. I just went through my closet and put everything in color groups, it seems I buy pink the most! Which is funny because I don't think I would say pink is my favorite haha! I love the red blazer, bummer it doesn't come in petites! Brooke pumps and push-ups
    • I hardly own anything in pink! My husband loves me in pink and yet I rarely buy anything that color. I'm a slave to neutrals.
  • I love red, but don't own a lot of it! Thanks for sharing at Friday Frenzy Link Party! PINNED!
