What I Wore: Red and Black

Hope everyone had an amazing weekend! My Saturday was spent shopping which ALWAYS makes me happy, I am on a credit card freeze for the month- but I am participating in a contest for Marshalls called Project Fab. I am a semi-finalist who was sent a gift card and asked to find some fabulous deals. Well, let me tell you I found some fabulous deals!

If you follow Ruby Slipper Diaries on Facebook and Instagram I shared a few photos during my shopping adventure… Check it out if you haven’t already.

Over the next week I’ll be sharing my purchases, but today is an Oldie but Goodie I bought at Marshalls a few years ago:

Black Pumps- Franco Sarto via Marshall’s
Gladiator Heels- Nine West via Boscovs
Necklace- Burlington Coat Factory

If you saw the first of my Fall Trends post here red and black plaid is a trend to try next season, but honestly black and red is a classic color scheme that will never go out of style. So if plaid has you left feeling too lumber jack or school girl you can still stay trendy by pairing these colors together!

Happy Monday!

Fall Trends Vol. 1: Tough Girl Tartan

Fall is coming whether I like it or not, so I’ll bite the bullet and start sharing what fall has in store for us.

Today’s post is the first edition of the seasons upcoming trends- First up: Black and Red Plaid. Fear not my fellow Private School alums the look is classy chic not school girl.

To offset the uniform feel incorporate the trend in small doses:

Take a plaid midi skirt and accent in all Black. The black open toe ankle boots are an unexpected touch of bad girl, but the structured handbag and mixed metal pearl necklace keeps you office appropriate and oh so Lady like.

Add a plaid pump to boyfriend jeans, white T and a structured blazer. A hint of gold and a red patent clutch makes an otherwise casual outfit a little luxe and fun!

For those days when you want something comfortable but trendy, wear your plaid oversized with leggings, ankle boots and a cross body bag.

What I Wore: Peplum and Pink

Weekends come and go so quickly. Just another Manic Monday (I’ll have that song stuck in my head the rest of the day.)

I’m starting to get a little depressed with all the “summer is almost over” discussion. The magazines are talking about the fall trends, I’m just not ready for all that yet. Feeling the pressure of having to wear all my summer clothes Right Now, before it’s too late!!

I’m being a bit dramatic this morning, but seriously I don’t want summer to end- (Insert Temper Tantrum)

I love the black and white pattern of the top against the bright pop of pink, and I’m a huge fan of the bow buckle detail on the belt. Obsession of the moment: Bows!

Hope you had a great weekend! Happy Monday!

What I Wore: Bright and White

I don’t know about you but I love white. White pants, dresses, shirts..etc You get the picture.

The problem I have is I can’t make it through a day without spilling something on myself. The day my blue pen decides to explode is the day I am wearing White- coincidence?

The planets were all aligned yesterday, No spills! My white pants are still white, it was a good day!

What to Wear to the Office

Navy blue is a huge color for fall, it doesn’t have to be blah! Pair it with cool pastels now- after all it’s still July (Let’s not rush the summer) In the cooler months a dark teal and burgundy are the perfect accents.
