STARK CONTRAST / Dark wool and black pumps against a monotone red outfit

It was a bit chilly over the weekend, and the rain did come, so I got a chance to sneak in a "coat" (by California standards... this would definitely not keep anyone warm over on the East coast!) before I put them away for the season. After some colorful outfits, I thought I would go back to the stark classic pairing of red and black.

I was able to catch up with one of my cousin's sweet girlfriend this past weekend (actually all of my cousin's girlfriends are the sweetest, my cousins are quite the lucky guys!) who just got back from a work trip to London (!!) and our chat inspired me to pull out this blouse. She is an aspiring Family Nurse Practitioner who will be going on a medical mission to Ghana in a couple weeks and the love, passion, and dedication she has for her job is so admirable. I am so excited to hear all about her trip when she gets back! The red print against the white reminds me of a [cartoon] nurse's uniform which in turn reminds me of her :)

I hope you're having a good week so far! I woke up today thinking it was Saturday... oomph, that cannot be a good thing since it's only Tuesday. Oh well, that is life :) Take care!!
