21 Jul Red Alert
Hot enough for you? This is turning into one heat wave-filled summer across vast swaths of the country. I think that’s what’s gotten into me for inspiration to write this post – on red hot red. I really do love the color red for its energy and boldness. It’s no wonder to me that it’s the symbol of good fortune in so many cultures. Read on for Petiterie’s picks in this delightful brilliant hue…
J. Crew’s drapey tie-neck blouse in sleeveless form is just that, and gorgeous for work.
Another option for the office. I love the elegant simplicity of this shell, down to the detail of a single button just off-center at the neck.
The crisp white polka dots on this split-neck sleeveless top are so fun for summer, and are a good size match for petite proportions. I’d wear a cami like this one underneath because there’s too much peek-age through the ladder detail at the front placket for me.
A sleeveless button-down in a beautiful summery linen blend.
Just a good basic tank.
I think these kick crops are so pretty. I’d size up so that they wouldn’t fit quite as snug.
Red alert definitely applies here — it’s on sale right now. I posted about this dress recently in my picks for this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale; it’s just that good. The seriously phenomenal silhouette-flattering design of this dress is not to be underestimated. Comes in black, too, which is also well worth the consideration.
The subtle textural plaid is fantastic on this midi-length shirt dress. Reviewers say to size down on this one.
