Fauxionable Outfit – Red, My Accent Color

Thank you to all of you who chimed in on the previous post! While I was previously leaning towards keeping the skirt and returning the dress, I think you’ve all convinced me otherwise.

Since moving to London, I’ve been living in my jeans. I also find myself constantly reaching for the same few sweaters or shirts. To remedy that, I decided to wear a skirt instead when G and I went to check out the Picture This exhibit at the British Library. However, some old habits are hard to change. Case in point: my monochrome outfit paired with red accent. (It’s one of my tried & true formula – e.g. see here, here, here, and here.) While blue was my favorite color growing up, red has taken over these days. I find red to be the perfect pop of color against my neutrals, not to mention it’s a festive color for most holidays. (Xmas, New Year’s, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day… you get the drift.) Over the years I’ve amassed quite a number of red accessories to accent my outfits – the perfect red bag, earrings, shoes, and the latest being my wallet. Needless to say, red is my favorite accent color. What is yours?

Fauxionable Outfit – Burgundy/Oxblood Sweater & H&M Coupon

I wore this outfit some weekends ago to run errands and just realized that I didn’t get around to posting it. I absolutely love this H&M sweater and it’s the only piece of clothing I’ve bought during my clothing ban to replace an older sweater. I had a coupon and scored it for only $9! It is made of 90% acrylic (yes, I know it’s material to be avoided but I plan on dry cleaning it) and 10% mohair and definitely keeps me warm and cozy!

I would also like to share this H&M coupon for 20% off that I just received in my inbox. Perhaps you’d like to snag one of these sweaters or use it for a gift. Either way, happy shopping! 🙂
