National Wear Red Day



Do you know what day it is lovelies? It’s that special day of the year where we get to wear red in support of women’s heart disease awareness. It’s a particularly important issue for me as I’ve had several loved ones affected by heart disease. So, let’s throw on our red duds and think about how we can all make our lifestyles healthier. Who’s with me?

    If I left the house, I would have rocked the red today. Between working from home and too long of a nap earlier tonight, I’m a lazy girl.

    This is such an important cause though and especially for women. February is a great month to bring attention to the disease.

    That dress is so retro looking and pretty.

    Heart disease runs on my husband’s side of the family so we are definitely supportive. I probably could wear red every day of the year if it’s something as cute as that dress!
