Buffalo Plaid & Pop of Red

Isabel Marant tweed coat (similar – on sale!)
Christian Louboutin “Iriza” d’orsay pumps

Bought this Chloe crossbody bag because I liked the fun color (so many colors to choose from!) and durable leather. I was envisioning traveling through Northern Europe in the summer with this small bag slung crossbody, but I couldn’t wait to wear it. Along with the bag, I added a couple pops of red to an otherwise reliable monochromatic outfit.

    There is something about a black, white & red look that is so appealing! That is a great bag—always a fan of crossbody bags! I love the pop of red in your pumps and lips, too!

      I just parted my hair in the middle this time! Hard for me to get used to…

    Hi, Carolyn, I love the way you put together red lipstick and a red bag. Thank you for dropping a comment on my blog a few days ago.

    Love from Trang

    I love the little Chloe bag! Is it big enough for all your travel essentials? The crossbody bag that I use when I'm out and about exploring needs to be big enough to carry my wallet, phone, passport, and a bottle of water!

      Hi Emily! This Chloe will fit a small wallet, phone, passport, and some other necessities, but not a bottle of water. I like a smaller bag for adventuring during the day, so it's not as heavy and bulky, but I also bring a bigger purse for lugging around stuff for airplane/train rides.

    Oh man oh man, now I NEED that purse. I love the rigid structure of it, but that it's round. It looks so fun during winter, too- such an unexpected and cheery pop of color! You always have the most elegant pieces 🙂

    I love how you've styled the monochrome plaid with a 'pop' of red – love it! 🙂

    I love everything about this! Truly a beautiful bag that you'll get a ton of wear out of. It add the perfect amount of color to your black and white, a combo I cannot get enough of lately!

    You totally fabulous in this outfit Carolyn! I really like the color combination- I think b&w + red looks amazing together! And red lips definitely suit you so well!

      I just got it and the leather seems structured and durable so far! Hopefully the bottom will keep its shape.

    This is so chic! I love the whole look, and the pop of red with your bag and lipstick just set it all off perfectly! x

    Black, red, and white go together so well. Although, to be honest, almost any colour goes with white and black to make it that little bit different 😛 Haha. But that is a gorgeous shirt!


  16. December 21, 2014 / 3:19 am

    Ohh I love this look as well. Black, white, and just a touch of red. Classic.
    And I see those red bottoms, you go girl! 🙂
