Wear Red Day

I am a proud member of the Go Red for Women Circle of Red. We organized a special presentation for Wear Red Day, which was on February 5th.

Another member showed up with a very similar look. Great minds!

Do you know that 80% of heart disease and stroke events may be prevented by lifestyle changes and education? Heart disease is the number one killer of women.To learn more, go to the American Heart Association’s website at

During the month of February, American Heart Month, participating hospitals in East Tennessee and across the country will pass out thousands of little red hats to the parents of newborns as a part of the Little Hats, Big Heart’s program.

 The Little Hats, Big Hearts program raises awareness of heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans, and congenital heart defects, the most common type of birth defect in the country. 

Volunteers from across Tennessee and four other states have hand knitted over six hundred Little Red hats. In the photo above our Chair, Maggie Ingram and I are explaining the program to Pete Peterson, our city manager just before the presentation.

The Artic air has returned to my area, so I wore layers. The red dress worn as a tunic was supplied to me by J.Jill last year. The leggings are by Hue via Dillard's worn over Hanes pantyhose in the color jet. The boots are by Saks via Saks Off 5th. The oversize black and gray animal print knit scarf is old via Nordstrom. The gray quilted bag is from Express.

I would only wear this dress as a tunic because of the over the knee length. This might be a good look for a pear or apple shaped body. Wearing a necklace or scarf brings the focus up to your face. 

The tunic fits nicely above the bust and then relaxes into an A-line, which flows across your body, not accentuating any particular area. I love the fact that it has pockets!

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

Nice look! "The leggings are by Hue via Dillard's worn over Hanes pantyhose in jet." I'm curious about your choice to wear both leggings and pantyhose. Was this a choice for this particular look or do you always wear both?

Thank you for the question CK. I wore pantyhose for warmth and also because of the lines that socks and other types of underwear might have caused. Great outfits always start with a great foundation.

I love this tunic and you look amazing in red. Putting leopard with the look was perfect! Have a wonderful weekend, Susan.
