Red & Red

It's Saturday and I'm almost done with my finals! Now, if I can just finish up this ten page research methods paper in a blink of an eye, that would be amazing! I am soooo close to freedom, but yet I feel like it's so far away. I'm the kind of person who obsessing over her school work, and never leaves anything not done. I don't suppose that that's a bad thing, but it does cause extra, unwanted stress. I guess you could say I'm a perfectionist, in a messy kind of way.

Lately I've been really loving the color red. I think it has something to do with being the extra pop of color that I just need during chilly winter days. I've noticed in the blogosphere that I'm not alone in my love affair with red. My sweet friend Vanessa, who I will be seeing in a few weeks when Scott and I visit Las Vegas, admitted her love for the color red on her blog yesterday. She really knows how to rock the color great!

I recently received these Naomi flats from Blowfish Shoes. When my mom saw them for the first time she screamed "Christmas shoes!" I admit, they are pretty Christmasy, and I love that. They are the perfect shade of red, and comfortable to boot! I think I will be wearing them to Scott's works Christmas party this Sunday!

Today I promised myself I would devote a little more time to my final paper, but I would also like to pretend I'm already on holiday break and do something fun as well. I'm thinking a trip to The Coffee Shop, or maybe Lola Coffee to get a yummy drink, and then take a nice walk around the area would do the trick. I think a walk would be a nice de-stresser, and good coffee drink is always ok in my book.

  1. loooving all of the red, friend!!!! hope you get some good rest this Christmas break - hugs!!!

  2. Absolutely fabulous outfit! Just found your blog & am loving' it.

  3. Eek you're so cute in red! Love it. And those shoes...oh my. I think I already (al-red-y hahahah okay that's just embarrassing) declared my love for them, but I LOVE THEM.

    And I totally know what you mean about school stuff. I'm also a messy sort of perfectionist. I have 2 more exams and then I'm DONE! Well, for 12 days. It's making me kind of stir crazy. And apparently it is making me post bad puns on other peoples blogs. But still! We can do it girl :) xo

  4. Love color pops in the winter! Red, yellow. royal blue! Can't stay away from them. I've never been able to study without taking snacky breaks -whether that's to the kitchen, or to the cafe down the street:) Good luck finishing your paper (best feeling ever)!

  5. Good luck finishing your paper! I'll be done with my exams tomorrow and I can't wait to spend a week at home, relaxing, cuddling with my sweet kitten and drinking coffee. I love red during the winter! My favorite red item is a jacket. These shoes are really cute! I don't think they're too Christmasy.

  6. Those flats look so great on you! I may need to get some of my own ;) thanks for linking me! And seriously, isn't red amazing this season? So in love. And excited to see you!!!!

  7. You look so good in red! Love that lil pop of color. :]

  8. I love this outfit! I'm a huge fan of beanies and this one is super cute matched with the shoes. The red is fabulous.
