When I was in high school, there were a few things I hated and would never wear. I hated sweatpants, ballet flats (my favorite shoe were high tops or ankle booties), knee high boots, and a few other things. Among all of my very closed minded hated fashion was the color red.
Red was like a crime to nature. I hated everything that looked red. I wouldn’t wear it, I wouldn’t draw or paint with it. Nothing. Nah dah. And as how I’ve stopped being so closed about the other things I stuck my nose up to (now I even wear sweatpants to work if the opportunity arrises) my wardrobe is now craving red.
I’ve been wearing this red shirt like everyday for the past week. I love it with shorts and flats. It’s my boyfriends, so it’s oversized. It’s simply a bright red, so I have no idea why I love it so much right now, but I can’t get over it.
Next is this button up revlon shirt. It has thin red stripes, but also other colors too, like black and green. It can be paired with a lot of things, my favorite being this black tank top and my green pants that I wore in my Breezy Beautiful post. It’s so weightless for summer, I can’t get enough of the silhouette either.
I realized I really liked red when I randomly put on red nail polish. Me? And red nail polish? That’s like never happened. What is even happening to me right now??? I also painted with it.
That’s right. I painted these shoes. The original soles were a dark brown, and perfectly fine. But inspiration struck, and I went through all of my paints to (for some reason) pick RED!!! These shoes just need another coat of red, and a top layer to protect the color, and they’ll be good to go. Now I’m surrounded by it at all times. I’m even covering up with a red blanket as I write this. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse:
I’m drinking red things too. I officially have a problem. Shirts, shoes, nails, and now I’m ingesting it. I can’t help myself.
I used to surround myself with cool colors, like blue, green, and purple. But now all the sudden I’m drawn to oranges, yellows, and especially red. I don’t know if it’s because of the summer or if it has something to do with my emotional or mental state, no clue. Just another thing in my life that’s changing.
Thank you for reading!! I thought this would be a funny little thing to write about. Let me know if you have any current obsessions you can’t get enough of. See you soon!
