Happy Friday! While sports are over in the United States the playoffs of rugby have just started and England plays again this weekend. Last weekend they lost to Scotland and I had a very unhappy fiancé on my hands so fingers crossed this Saturday goes better! Though regardless of that outcome there is definitely something to look forward to on Sunday, Valentine’s Day! I asked last week on Instagram for advice on what to wear and I am excited to get dressed up for our date day.
This option with a pearl headband was in the running and even though it was outvoted, I still wanted to share it here today. Similar to the leopard coat I shared last week for Fashion Friday, there seems to be a surge of red making its way into my closet. While this may be too bold or too harsh of a color for some the quote from The Holiday, one of my favorite Christmas movies, always comes to mind, “But try it in a red. Like a happy red, not like a Scorsese red.” And that is how I would describe the color of this dress – a happy red! Take a look:

This dress, while it looks like it would be a fit for a February day, is actually a bit too warm to wear inside. It is made of Merino wool but is far from itchy – I really like the soft texture, wide boat neck, and the ribbed sleeves. I just checked and this Knit Boat Neck Long Sleeve Flare Dress in Red Is on final sale, hurry while they still have some left! And while the dress does add a good statement I decided to pair it with a wide pearl headband. I think it complements the bag and gives the outfit a good pop.
What do you think of the pearl headband?
