Today's Everyday Fashion: The Red Skirt

What is it about red and denim that is so preppy and American? I recently featured this red skirt in my Fall 2011 Shopping Guide, and then was lucky enough to stumble upon the same skirt on MJR Sales for only $17! I balanced out the tight-fitting bottom by wearing it with a loose and boyish top. I love that it makes my straight as a board body look like I have J.Lo curves. :-) The material is very stretchy, which can make it hard to tuck in a shirt like this without it showing through, but I like that it's soft and comfy and it fits true to size (I got a 2, but I think a 4 also could have worked). Red is one of my favorite colors for fall so I have a feeling I will be posting with it often!
