Tis the Season to Show Our Red!

Happy beginning of another week everyone! Which camp are you in?  Do you believe Sunday begins or ends the week?  Just because it is a work day, Monday is the week beginner for me!
Several of you asked me what I left the Coldwater Creek holiday review wearing and here it is....the flattering, fabulous red tweed jacket!!  I have paired it with their super soft, Primaknit black turtleneck and the slim fitting black denim 
For me, this is an understated way to wear a holiday color...and then not have to put it away when December 25th comes and goes.
I have had the bracelet so long, I do not remember where it came from...but the necklace is a recent Goodwill purchase!

You know, in my world, I feel just as fabulous as Kate Hudson seems to on the recent cover of Harper's Bazaar modeling her red!

This post is part of a collaboration today with other fabulous women and how we all wear red.  Just check us out with JILL and ADRIENNE, different bloggers on both sites!!  Also, joining the ladies of MONDAY MINGLE!!  and The Verizon Voices Fashionista Blog Hop!!

Have a holly jolly Monday, everyone!

All garments in the post were provided by Coldwater Creek


  1. Hi Pam! Love your red--I will be over at Jill's for my red. Course its one of my fave colors! Have a great week~ xoxo

  2. Pam, red is your color. You look mahhhhvelous, my dear. I love Coldwater Creek. When they opened a store here, I was ecstatic and I am never dissatisfied.

    And since I retired, every day is Saturday. Life is good!

  3. Radiant in Red! Ravishing, even. Lovely texture in the red jacket.

  4. Love this blazer! I like "holiday" pieces that can carry on past the holidays.

    This color looks fabulous on you.

  5. Hi Pam! I like this jacket on you so much, especially paired with that amazing necklace! I'm so glad you are joining us for "How I Wear My: Red", the post goes up tomorrow and it is looking beautiful. Thank you for the mention! XO, Jill

  6. The red jacket is fabulous! I'll have to head over to Coldwater Creek this week! That stunning light from the Grand Hyatt looks like a piece by Dale Chihuly, is it?

  7. Perfect look, Pam! Exactly what I love wearing to the office - black basics plus a coloured/printed/patterned jacket always work and look great.
    Have a lovely week!

  8. I do find red very cheerful at this time of year. For me it needs to be a soft blue red however your tone red looks great on you.

  9. Your jacket is incredibly beautiful and the Red is vibrant and very flattering for you. I love the fact that Red uplifts any mood, and creates an incredible amount of energy around us. Great look!

  10. As always you look great Pam! The red jacket is a winner!

  12. Red is always so flattering and your Coldwater Creek jcket is really styling!

  13. What a fabulous look and that is a great red on you
    Reds can be so tricky

  14. The red is great on you with the silver accents. Red just feels right to me also, especially during this time of year. The Dale Chilhouly piece in the lobby is a beauty. Glorious red mix isn't it! We had an exhibit of his work like this here in town, so exciting to see.

  15. I always say that the most stunning accessory of all is that smile. You and dear Renae over at Simple Sequins, you two have a smile that is unbeatable! But your finds are always KNOCK OUT! Love, LOVE those blue shoes of yours, Pam!

    Thank you so much for showing your daughter my post! Enjoy nature if you can; there is so much magic out there! LOVE TO YOU, PAM! Anita

  16. How festive you look in your red jacket, embellished by your silver bracelet and Goodwill necklace. A perfect way to initiate the holiday season.

  17. I really like this outfit on you Pam, I like everything! The jacket is fab and your bracelet and necklace are just gorgeous and so original! You look fantastic! Hugs, Beata xxxx
