red!

it’s not a color i wear naturally, but paired with cotton-fresh whites, a bit of sparkle, and a cold drink or two, i think it’s just the hue to usher in a new season of warmer weather… punchy pops of juicy ruby tones to combat the haze of summer heat. (never mind that california is struggling under a layer of storm clouds this week. sunshine and brighter days are coming – i am sure of it!)
