Red Means Go

Dress & Shirt (Loft); Sweater (Banana Republic Outlet); Tights (Kohls); Boots (Nine West); Sunglasses (Charming Charlie); Earrings & Bracelet (Gifts)

Wearing a bold color can be like a shot of caffeine - you move quicker, accomplish more, and are ready for anything...   In this case, red definitely means go!  Not to be confused with yellow -  which means stop, especially in Chicago. When the $200 ticket for "running a red light" came in the mail, I was outraged!  Clearly this was a mistake! Oh, but they included a link to the video of the crime in action...  And there I am, speeding up at a yellow light.  Oops.... I must have been wearing red ;)

My fav combo, stripes and red! Oh, that sucks that you got a ticket and $200. . . those dang cameras, hopefully you can get the fee reduced.
