Lady In Red

Top: H&M | Jeans: Zara | Heels: Gift


Hi all! Hope everyone’s well and keeping warm amidst the change in season. As we fast approach Fall, the weather here in London is certainly doing justice in helping us understand this. It’s getting colder by the day, and I’m so not ready! Over the next couple of weeks, for as long as possible, I hope to soak in every bit of summer that’s left (to be honest, of which never came; sigh! Haha). Nonetheless, I’m hopeful.

Onto to today’s post…

Trying to veer away from the stares I already can feel

…yes I, Funmi, am in red. Bright red as a matter of fact.

Do you have a colour you aren’t particularly keen on? For me, it’s red. I just did not think it was a suiting one on me. Besides, isn’t red a tad too in-your-face?!

Of late however, I’ve found myself constantly drawn to it. More importantly, this H&M top really did a lot of persuading in swaying my opinion of it. The beautiful frills/gathers and thin straps are endearing, and do lend a hand to its feminine appeal. Whilst this look suits perfectly, the idea of being in red will require some getting used to.

What do you think? Leave your thoughts below, would love to read about it.


Be Right Back,

Funmi xx

  1. I totally think red suits you; you look amazing! You should give it a try more often. This top sure is beautiful. Paired with the red caged heels, fab styling.

    Incredible post as always. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  2. Ah Funmi I totally feel you about red! I think it’s the color that it’s the least flattering on me, and still trying to find the right tone for me. I love seeing it on others and I am quite jelly of how amazing it looks on you haha! You really look gorgeous, I mean with that smile, any colour would look great on you 🙂
    I will keep on trying to find my red tone! Thanks for the inspiration and have a great rest of the week!

  3. Yes, it’s getting chilly, I confess that I like it 🙂 But I know I’ll miss summer too 🙂 I love red, to tell you the truth, but as you said, it’s a recipe for people to stare. I loved this top and I think red suits you! I loved the top and the red sandals! You look very beautiful!

  4. I also feel intimidated by red. Even red lipstick haha
    You completely rocked this look, glad you’re embracing it!

  5. Red hot you look gal. What a great shoot, look and your charm. Fabulous.

  6. Wow! Too sexy! I love this vibrant red! Love the outfit!

  7. Wow, your red top and sandals are 2die4!
    Kisses, Paola.

  8. Love your red blouse <3 Great photos dear!

  9. Red is your color! The OTS top and lace-up booties just make this outfit POP xx

  10. Your red off shoulder top is so lovely !
    Love it.

  11. Fab red accents and hope to see you wear more of this fiery shade- it looks good on you o! I love red, it’s so in your face and really compliments our skin tone. X

  12. Red suits you perfectly, especially the style of that top fits great with your hairstyle!
    I believe it’s a bit weird to find yourself in colour you’re not used to, my brother used to wear black and black only, and to this day, if I see him in any other coloured t-shirt, I feel there’s something wrong with the whole picture.
    But, please keep embracing red, you look so beautiful in it!

    xx, have a wonderful weekend 😀



  13. Firstly you look great Funmi. I love the top and the different details on it like peplum sleeve, off-shoulder, etc.
    My colour of the season is green. Even though red is trending, I will be wearing it suttlely

  14. You look so stunning and chic! I’m in love with this top, it’s super nice 🙂

    xoxo dear ❤

  43. I can’t wait for the next season to come because I’m so over the heat XD. I’m ready for some cozy clothes and warm drinks. I noticed that red is not really a popular color when it comes to clothes even though it looks great on people! It makes a bold statement and you look gorgeous in your outfit!

  44. You look stylish girl! Love those heels too!

  45. You look radiant! I used to have a thing with the color green, now I started to slowly incorporate it into my wardrobe and I think I have a few nice pieces =o)

  46. Truthfully like you, it’s a colour I look at from afar, seeing it on others it’s amazing and I love the combo of the black pants and red lace up shoes. It gives a va va room to the look

  47. Beautiful top and your heels are out of the world. Simply fabulous outfit. How many compliments have you received for this look 🙂
