{lookbook} black + white + red







I had high hopes for this outfit.  And then I woke up yesterday and Siri told me it's 36 degrees outside.  My hopes went right out the window with the Oklahoma wind.  And since I left my tolerance for cold weather on the shores of the Mediterranean when I moved, I ended up with this sweater, high wool socks and a blazer.  Nothing too exciting, but it let me look pulled-together enough for yet another business meeting.  At least I had a pop of color with my red necklace!

hope it's a fabulous day,
xx



I'm excited to be participating in Everybody, Everywear for the first time today!
