pink and red

I love red and I love pink, but generally not together. So when I saw that the theme for this week's Friday Fancies was pink & red, I was a little perplexed. I wasn't sure how to pull together an outfit in this color combo that I'd actually like. But, leave it to polyvore...I was able to find ways to mix the colors together in a way that wasn't crazy loud, but definitely gave the Valentine's Day vibe.

pink and red

I love this shirt. I'm a huge fan of asymetrical necklines/cowl necks. Plus, it's a gorgeous shade of dark red that everyone looks good in!

A great pair of jeans. They aren't really anything special, but they're a good color, with good fading on the thighs. Plus I like that they aren't crazy skinny or boot cut, just perfectly straight.

 Who doesn't need a pair of polka dot Toms? I definitely do. This is where my pink comes in. I think they keep the outfit casual and fun. Plus, I like the different shade of pink involved.

 I love a good purse, but really I normally carry around my small wristlet. I love the size of this one, and I like how the tan color matched the shoes without being matchy-matchy.

 More of the pink/red combo. The watch is just fun. A great accessory with any outfit, but it looks sweet and festive for a Valentine's Day look.

 I need new glasses and these are fantastic. My current classes are red wire frames, and I'd love to get black/pink plastic frames as my new pair but I don't look very good in them.
