What I'm Wearing: National Wear Red Day

Today is National Wear Red Day, did you remember to wear red!? I'm showing my support as a blogger ambassador for The Heart Truth® campaign in a red stripe sweater and mini hearts manicure. In case you're not familiar, National Wear Red Day helps raise awareness about women's heart health. And you can get involved, too (even if you're not wearing red!): Post a heart photo on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ShowYourHeart to show your support and trigger a $1 donation from Diet Coke® to heart health programs, up to $100,000.

You can also follow me on Twitter and Instagram for live updates from The 2013 Red Dress Collection Fashion ShowSM, which I'll be covering this February 6 in New York City. The beautiful Minka Kelly is the celebrity ambassador and I hear she'll be wearing an original red dress created by Oscar de la Renta. Should be stunning!

{What I'm Wearing: J.Crew sweater (purchased on clearance last winter), J.Crew plaid shirt (purchased on clearance this winter), Soia & Kyo wool coat (last year winter clearance at Yurway Boutique), LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's ankle boots (still a few pairs in stores now), Geranium necklace on loan from, Rebecca Minkoff bag (purchased at T.J.Maxx), gifted Lucky Brand jeans, Julep nail polish in Helen and Claudette}

Soia & Kyo are my FAVORITE coats. Canadians really make warm coats! It's like swaddling yourself in a fine wool blanket. I bought a second one from Rue La La for just $89. Amazing brand.
