If you were to ask a number of people what their favorite color is you would probably get a ton of different answers. But why do we sometimes gravitate towards certain colors moreso than others anyway…Hmmm?? Well, usually our favorite colors have to do with the way we think they make us look and feel. It’s also possible to be attracted to certain colors during certain circumstances depending on the occasion. You may be attracted to simplicity and the ethereal look of white on some days to brighten up your mood making you feel fresh, free and rejuvenated. And at other times you may be attracted to the mysterious and sleek look of black making you look slim, sophisticated and chic. I personally have no favorite color in particular. However, red gets mistaken as my favorite color a lot understandably because I tend to wear it quite often (lol). And while it is not my ultimate favorite it is indeed a color I gravitate towards at times. Red screams passion, love, energy, vitality, strength and excitement. I never feel more alive than when I have on the same color that pumps and flows through my veins (lol). Whatever colors you gravitate towards make sure they always make you both look and feel good too. Our clothes should be a reflection of what we both seek and wish to exude. That’s why I chose this outfit on the blog today.

Of course my headliner for this look is this beautiful red maxi lattice dress by Urban Modesty. When I first found this dress online over a year ago I bought it on sale in the only 2 colors they had at the time. I love the deep cranberry red color of this dress. The pictures don’t do the color enough justice…Sorry. The shape of this dress is so sophisticated and elegant. I love the empire waistline with the A-line shape and full circle skirt. These 3 combinations are totally flattering on everyone…Trust me!!  I love how this dress just falls and moves with such grace and subtle charm. It is a tad bit long for my 5’3 frame but that doesn’t bother me much because I love a little drama in my garments anyway (lol). I love the silky soft material along with the slightest pleats down the front and the big side pockets. Side pockets on dresses are such a huge bonus in my book…love them!!

For this cooler fall weather I chose to pair my dress with this faux leather bomber jacket I thrifted just days before. Let me just say this is one of my favorite fall finds so far!! I love the distressed look of the deep camel color along with all the pockets, buckles and zippers. I absolutely adore how edgy and cute this jacket is. It can be dressed up or down and paired in so many ways. I thought this jacket looked great with my dress mixing both style elements like sophisticated and edgy.

I decided to wear my strappy Guess platform slingbacks with this outfit. I loved sticking with the neutral camel color and I thought these paired well with my jacket.

I went with this oversized Jessica Simpson embossed handbag to pair with my outfit. I loved how all the colors in this bag played well into my outfit picking up the red and camel along with a beautiful chocolate brown pulling the outfit completely together.

Last but not least I chose this chocolate brown jersey hijab and a pair of earrings I made that morning out of an old shoe strap. Notice I’m also wearing my chillier weather hijab style in this outfit with the built in scarf around my neck (lol). I just realized that’s my go to hijab style when it starts getting colder. Gotta love a twofer!!
