Red and Green

Red and Green

Whenever there is a horrible disaster like the one in Japan, I feel funny posting as usual, but I don’t want to just tack on something trite, either. It’s one of those situations where I don’t know what to say, so I usually say nothing. But my heart truly goes out to the people of Japan. The world seems like such a scary place lately.


Red and green is one of those combos that is tricky to pull off without looking like you’re celebrating Christmas, even in July. The key is to avoid primary green. Army green, mint green, or teal green all work.

I tried and tried to get a good photo of my earrings on my ears, but they kept moving and either hiding behind my hair or showing up as a blur. So this is what they look like not in use.

Sweater: Vintage, thrifted
