Red and Thursday Moda

Let’s hope you’re not over seeing the color red just yet because that’s what I’m wearing today! I’m also thrilled to be co-hosting Thursday Moda once again with my friends Ada of Elegance and Mommyhood and Chrissy of Granola and Grace.

You might remember I bought this blouse awhile ago from Nordstrom. It’s just been so hot I haven’t had a chance to wear it. Mine is sold out but I’ve included some options for you (plus size as well) that are not only beautiful but affordable as well.


Red is a festive color at Christmas but we’ll be pulling out again February for Valentine’s Day so if you’re wondering if adding red to your wardrobe is a good idea the answer is yes!
A red blouse works well dressed up or down. While my blouse would be perfect for an office if I wore a pencil skirt, I chose skinny jeans in a dark wash and my fancy black heels (under $40). I could wear this to any holiday party or night out.                          Since this top is really a faux wrap it’s easy to wear without a lot of fussing. Being a busty girl, I sometimes have to pin tops and fuss way too much so I’m not overexposed. This blouse has a hidden button to take care of that. I have decided I am no longer interested in wearing anything that requires too much fussing. Those pieces tend to end up in my donate pile all too often. #lessonlearned
This blouse styles itself and gives the illusion of the trendy half tuck, again without the worry that you’re doing it right! It’s slightly longer in the back which I love. The only thing I forgot to do was button the roll tab sleeves #bloggerfail.  Now friends, I hope you’ll hop on over and checkout what Ada and Chrissy are wearing!

Now it’s your turn, are you ready to share your look?


XO,
Kellyann

      You are so sweet Johanna! I feel the same way, can’t keep my head above water and can’t keep up with all the blogs I read. This time of year is nutty and I am changing jobs so that adds a whole new dimension of crazy.
      I hope you enjoy the holidays with your beautiful family! I’ll bet your precious daughters are anxiously counting the days!

    Kellyann, I love that top on you styled with the animal print bracelet. You look fabulous! Now can we talk about your new blog page? This looks so fresh and clean! I love it. 🙂 And just in case you don’t get replies from the blog posts…once again your words of encouragement lifted and filled my heart. You are such a blessing! Thank you for shining for Jesus and spurring on your soul sisters in the process. 🙂

      Thanks Chrissy, I am loving my new blog design, it was so needed! I am happy my words filled your heart – I have a feeling you do that for so many. I am glad my love of Jesus is apparent and I hope to be a light to others. Merry Christmas soul sista!

      Thanks Carrie! I didn’t even think how perfect this top would be for Christmas when I bought it but it turns out to be great and so comfortable and easy. That’s what’s getting me through these last few days – easy!
      Have a great one!

    Um, helllooooo. Those jeans look great on you!!! Which ones are they? I love that top and the faux wrap. So cute. I guess the biggest difference in us (literally) is our bust size. Your busty and I’m, well…not. But that’s ok. My hips would just look that much bigger. HA! Love this outfit my beautiful, blonde bombshell friend. Would you just start ordering two of everything and having one shipped to me. You can start a tab for me. LOL Have the best Thursday! KT and I are going to get out and mix it up with the shoppers. Wish us luck. Lots of love to you! XO

      Hello friend! I should have linked the jeans but when I tell you I am exhausted that just doesn’t even come close to how I feel! Changing jobs is rough. Ok, the jeans are ON, super skinny rockstar – my favorite.
      Nolan and I are going shopping tomorrow and then we have dinner and gingerbread houses with our best friends. But tonight I am hosting a Cousins Christmas Party for all the kid cousins – what was I thinking? The last day of school before break, I am moving out of my office, co-hosting a link up – I am insane.
      Wish me well, I need a good night’s sleep!
      You are so sweet my friend, I am blessed.

      Thanks Whitney! Yes, that hidden bottom is most definitely a lifesaver! I’m on sugar overload and it’s not even Christmas Day!

    Red is such a beautiful color and you wear it well. Perfect for a day out and holidays! I too have banned too much fuss clothing in my closet. When you are always worried about flashing people or uncomfortable it’s just not worth the trouble and hassle.

      Thanks my friend, you know I wish you all the very same. Time spent with that beautiful family in your beautiful new home! You probably have bruises on your arms from pinching yourself that you really live there and it is your home – finally!!! I know I would!
      Love you girl and hope your sweet mom is healing!!
