You may be surprised to see a post on Louella Reese today! I know I don’t usually post Wednesday’s but today I’m partnering with four fabulous bloggers to share red dresses for Valentine’s Day! Miss Ruthie of Ruthie Ridley Life & Style Blog asked me to join in on the fun and I absolutely could not pass up the opportunity. If you aren’t familiar with Ruthie you need to make your way over to her site now! She is one incredible, beautiful, and inspirational woman. I am truly blown away by her weekly and inspired by her daily. She is one of those people that you can’t help but smile when you see her smile, just so beautiful {inside and out}. 

Moving on to today’s post, myself, Ruthie, April, Staja, and Debbie are styling red dresses for Valentine’s Day. Now I’m sure you’ve already noticed my dress is quite dark and not the brightest or riches of reds, well y’all all I have to say is #palegirlproblems. I think we can all agree there are colors that sadly just don’t work with our skin and steer clear of those {yellow is another one of mine}! So knowing a bright, beautiful red wasn’t going to work for me, I went with this darker, burgundy hue number. If you’re of a similar skin tone, I would recommend reaching for a wine, burgundy, or real deep red. These hues will compliment your skin and even give you a little extra color.

I mentioned Monday, Joshua and I typically stay in for Valentine’s Day so my outfit usually looks a little different {pajamas please}. So today’s post gave me the perfect excuse to find a fun Valentine’s Day dress and get all snazzy! As mentioned above, I knew bright red wasn’t going to work for me so I went on a serious hunt for a darker hue. I searched ASOS {lots of variety in all shades of red}, H&M {pretty good red variety as well}, Anthropologie {heavy on the BRIGHT vibrant red}, and Nordstrom {so many options and lots of deeper shades}. Quickly filtering the dress categories to only show red. What gal doesn’t love the excuse to do that? Are you going out for Valentine’s Day and getting snazzy?
