This outfit is what I like to call “channelling my mother 101”.  When I was younger my mom always wore red and black together and she always looked put together, but red and black was always one of her go to color combinations.  I vividly remember a friend’s mom picking me up from my house one day while my mom was playing basketball in the driveway with my younger brother.  She was rocking red jeans and a leather jacket and still managing to run after my Energizer Bunny of a brother.  The aforementioned friend’s mom told me that my mom always looked stylish no matter what she was doing, and I promptly saved this story in my head right next to the time she wouldn’t let me wear pajamas to school.

When I saw this bright red sweater at Banana Republic, I instantly fell in love with it.  With no sparkles or embellishments, it transitions well past the holiday season, through Valentine’s Day and even beyond.  The first time I went to wear it, I opened my denim drawer and was instantly drawn to classic black skinny jeans.  Finally, I slid my feet into these booties, which have a perfect pointy toe to add some style to a monochrome look.  When I looked at the finished product I couldn’t help but chuckle because I looked exactly like my mother.
