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. 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

  5. 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 😀



  6. Fall is right around the corner and it’s time to get my wardrobe in order. I love wearing red of winter, it looks great on OUR skin. I’m loving this shirt on you, I need to go shopping.

  7. You absolutely suit the colour red and I love how you’ve matched your caged heels to the colour of the blouse – gorgeous!

  8. 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!
