I finally found a pair of red pants! I have a really hard time finding pants that fit me because I’m really petite (short legs + a skinny waist + little hips= nothing fits). I usually have to shop in the junior’s or girl’s departments to find something  and even that is a battle in itself. Luckily, I spotted these pants and they fit great! Since my quest for a burgundy pair failed, I’ve settled for this brighter red. It’s Christmasy, wintery, and I’m sure I can still wear them during all the other seasons, too. I decided to go with red & black- a classic combo. I’m thinking this may be my Christmas Eve outfit, but that could easily change. Instead of overloading on sparkly jewelry, I let the color of the pants and my lipstick take center stage.
