But first, red accessories as of lately. As an 'accent' red can get into the rotation more than expected, perhaps incedently as a 'go to' and thus even becoming a neutral. Even as the definition of 'neutral' is not having defining character or light grey or beige, isn't it all relative?

Yes, I'm partially joking, but as summer brings out the boldest of prints and colors, doesn't all red AOTD look fly as hell?

But back to bold as hell, this a la tropics crop top grew on me by the fourth or fifth client I had outfitted in it, and well, by it's 5th or 6th outfit transformation, I was mentally tropical-izing my closet at home. These linen culottes in particular really looked like they needed a vacation, and who am I to stand in their way?

That's right, I just can't say no. But I take it that you too are not a shy type that turns away from some fun in the sun, so enjoy a tropical top to eat your boozy popsicles in.

Now that thats settled, I'll assume that you've been experimenting, That's right, I'm accusing you of...

...breaking up your two-piece outfits

Like these fine examples here. These are practically begging to head to the tropics too.
