bright red pants & a new leather tote {workwear wednesday}

Sometimes, bright red is scary. Sometimes bright pants are scary. Put them together and you’ve got yourself a recipe for disaster  fun. Until recently, I was a little apprehensive of putting the brightest color in my outfit anywhere near my bottom.

Fast forward a couple of years, and seeing other bloggers pull them off (Justine has a great pair of red pants) plus gaining a bit more self-confidence, and I’m able to rock my bright red skinny cords with aplomb.

Here, I pair them with a feminine blouse and cardigan in more mellow blue hues. What do you think of bright red pants? Yes or no thanks?

Annnnnd of course I gave myself a little early holiday gift of *yet another* leather purse, this time a beautiful brown leather tote.
