Tomato Red

For awhile I considered dyeing this tunic, and I'm really glad I didn't. While it's not the most flattering shade for my skin tone, I don't think it's really as bad as I initially thought, and paired with the bright white and yellow I think the outfit worked really well. The white and yellow softened the impact of the tomato red so that I didn't end up looking washed out.

The jacket is one I recently tracked down on eBay, and I just love how great it looks with my navy blue bag. A cropped, white denim jacket had been on my thrift shopping list for awhile, but after several trips to Goodwill yielded no results, I thought to try online. This one set me back just $15 and is new as far as I can tell.

I love a cropped jean jacket - my blue denim one is now 4 years old and I still wear it constantly. The white is pretty sweet!

Great trick of putting the scarf up near your face - that's an awesome way to wear a colour that isn't quite right for your skin tone (not saying this red is, mind you). :)

I'm a bit jealous of that jacket. It really is perfect!

Jealous of the scarf too - lovely color combination. I think you rock the red as well!

Now that's a perfect San Francisco summer outfit! (We are finally getting some heat down here on the peninsula and I hardly know what to wear, the 'spring' lasted so long.)

I think you look great! For me, the scarf ties it all together (no pun intended)!
