What to Wear: pop of color (or colour)


what to wear

“Who’s the tomato?”

This outfit reminded me of that line in Gangster Squad when Ryan Gosling’s character first sees Emma Stone’s. That slang stuck around our house- Brian’s bestie (and my good friend of 10 years now) is a ginger so we’re always looking for new nicknames for him. I’m pretty sure he loves it…

This week on What to Wear, we are showing you our favorite pops of color and I think I kind of missed the mark- instead of a “pop” this is more of an “explosion”.

Share any fun nicknames for red heads you may have too! ;)

  1. I LOVE this outfit. The colour of that dress is perfection. I think I need a pair of those tights. They look so great with this outfit.

    That outfit rocks! I’m so in love with that sweater–it was a DIY? For the collar? Way cool!

    Oh my gosh, this outfit is so perfect! I love the pairing of colors, and I think an explosion of color is way better then a pop!

    An explosion of fun, perhaps.

    Nothing wrong with a good old explosion of color in my book :-) This is perfect from head to toe Lisa! I am forever inspired by your color combinations…always so cheerful and sweet!

    You always mix colours in the most daring but perfect ways. The fact that you thrifted that beautiful dress really inspires me to try and build a thrifted wardrobe. I’m joining your colour pop link up although my outfit isn’t as wonderfully daring as yours!
