Feliz Miércoles! In high school, my Spanish teacher helped our class remember that Miércoles is Wednesday by reminding us that it’s a miracle to make it to the middle of the week. Get it? Miracle….Miércoles…? Oi — she was right!
On Sunday Christopher and I headed over to the Indianapolis State Fairgrounds for a flea market. We had a lot of fun wandering through the market looking at all the [sometimes very interesting] things people are trying to sell. You find it all [but never what you’re looking for] at flea markets — everything from valuable antiques to…..well…just stuff. I bought some cute cookie cutters from a little old lady who was SO nice when I made my purchase. I think I might have been her only sale all day. When I told her I wanted the cookie cutters she goes, “Well bless your heart!!!!”
I wore an outfit on Sunday that hits on one of my favorite current trends: pairing pink and red! Maybe it’s just me getting into the Valentines spirit early, but I think there’s nothing sweeter than pink and red worn together.
I wore a very soft pink dress with red tights, a grey cardigan over my top, and some suedette black boots. I also wore my favorite pink creme blush, which is so rosy and romantic — you can find it here. (PS – If I look cold in this photo, I WAS! I didn’t want to wear my coat into the flea market, so I made the trek across the fairgrounds coatless. BRRRR!)

I’m not the only one wearing red and pink. Here’s the lovely Emily from Cupcakes and Cashmere color blocking pink, red, and black.
And always fashionable, Sarah Jessica Parker makes a really bold red and pink statement!
Are you loving the red + pink trend? Or is it a look you’d only wear on Valentine’s Day?
