Red and White Linen

There are many color combinations that are so harmonious and so flattering to the eyes.  Among them in my opinion are blue and yellow, black and white, pink and purple and one of my favorites, red and white.  There is something about the clash of these 2 colors that is appealing to me.  Maybe the fact that white is so pure and clean and red can be a bit daring and sexy that is so clashing yet they compliment each other.  So, this week I dedicate this post to this 2 favorite colors of mine!

This jacket was a love at first sight.  I love the cut, the color and the fabric, a good mix of cotton and linen which is perfect for warmer weather.  It'll go well with my white linen pants I am known to abuse during summer and I cannot wait to use more of this red beauty.  For now I am loving this jacket/short combo.. they are so comfortable, I could live in them all year round!

  1. Oooh, I'm loving your red jacket! It's got such a nice, floppy collar to it. And that bracelet is lovely as well. Simple silver accessories add such a nice touch!

    && your comment on my last post was super sweet and thoughtful. Having a Madonna mole sounds pretty rad, actually. :) I can just barely make it out, but it's so nicely placed on your face! I think beauty marks are so so pretty.

  9. Hi, Mrs. C. Your red/white blazer with shorts is very cute.
    I just thrifted a red blazer yesterday and was so excited about wearing it with my white jeans, but I got it home and noticed there is a nasty stain on the sleeve and I must take it back and exchange it today. That's too bad.
    I am so into these printed t-shirts now too. I have thrifted several (more than I need)lately because I can pick them up for $1.50-$4 and I can't resist.
    Oh, and your photos in this color combo look beautiful with these red flowers. Have a great week!

    1. $4 for print t-shirt is a steal! They are great with plain blazer or even simply with jeans for casual day out. Can't wait to see the red blazer, Lisa :)

  10. Hello Mrs. C,
    Love your red and white outfit! You look adorable in it. If you're going to raid my closet, I'm going to raid yours :) Maybe we should just combine them -- think of all that we could do then!

  11. Damn girl! LOVE the red jacket, which I imagine could go with most everything. You totally rock those white shorts and the graphic tee is fun - but those killer red sandals
    tie it all together with class - WoW!

    1. Thee jacket goes with a lot of things and it is so casual. I can see a lot of wear coming from it :) The sandals are my favorite, I got it at a sale for 75% off the original very heavy price tag, so kind of a steal :)

  13. All pieces great, but together completely adorable! What a great shoe and bag combination ... great choices. You also look not a minute over 20. Is there a fountain of youth in Dubai or do you just have great genes?
    Looking good, Mrs. C.
