Today was National Wear Red Day! Cardiovascular disease claims the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women are not paying attention. To dispel the myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the American Heart Association created Go Red For Women – a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health. Fortunately I had a red top AND a red cardigan in my 30 For 30 choices, so I was able to participate today and show my support for this amazing cause!

Just an interesting fact about the scarf I'm wearing: the technique used to make it is called Bandhani. Bandhani is a popular type of tie and dye method in India were cloth is tied with thread and then dyed. It is the simplest and perhaps the oldest form of creating patterns on a plain piece of cloth.

BTW, indoor pictures= ick. Going back outside ASAP!

  1. national wear red day? cool! i love how you've teamed the blue with the red in this outfit.


  2. That scarf is beautiful! The method they make it by reminds me of a more sophisticated version of tie-dye.
    Lovely outfit! (love the red!)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I like the red on you--one of my favorite colors, but I hardly ever wear it for some reason.

  4. Thanks, guys! Red is one of my favorite colors, too! Especially on a dreary winter day!

    p.s. That scarf can also be worn as a sarong in the summer! Score!
