Is it just me and my intense girl crush (grush) on Olivia P., or do you also want to immediately find a dress in that fire engine red color and traipse around town sunkissed and decked out for summer?  This snap screams VACATION.  And.  I want it.  So today, I’m focusing in on that hot tamale red hue.

First.  Run, don’t walk, to snatch up this affordably priced lace shift ($145, Oasis) with these UNbelievable danglers (OMG — $390, Farfetch):


Finish with simple nude wedges ($250, Shopbop):

I might finish with a clean white blazer ($535, Rag & Bone):

Alternately, pair this dream of a dress (LOVE the zippered breast pockets, the nipped waist, and that color! — Malene Birger, $430, Net-A-Porter) with a floral statement necklace ($80, J. Crew):


Perfect with this fiery red crossbody (the perfect size — $425, Barney’s):


And — I know I already featured these shoes earlier in the sand color, but the look would kind of be perfect with these wonderfully coordinated wedges ($205, Endless):


For just a pop of color in the family, why not this gauzy polka-dot scarf (Mom, I know you’re already in love — $25, Mango) or these fun striped tootsies accented with a pop of the same color in flower format ($185, Jades24):

OR, perhaps this boxy red tote seals the deal (Marc Jacobs, $409, MyTheresa)?

Would be lovely with a bold beaded necklace (Kate Spade, $148, PiperLime), a nude lace top ($356, Matches), white jeans, and some nude sandals ($69, Free People):

Alternately, how dreamy is this little crochet number ($100, TopShop) with a button earrings ($125, Suzanna Dai):

I’d wear it with some simple ballet flats (Kate Spade, $225, Nordstrom) and a ladylike bag (on sale for $56, Joseph M.):


EEEE!  Also, don’t forget to checkout and enter the giveaway mentioned in Monday’s post!  EEE!!  A winner will be announced tomorrow!
