National Wear Red Day: #WIW Feature

Today is National Wear Red Day, a day that focuses on women’s heart health. I am wearing red today to highlight this issue.

 National Wear Red day is an important  event. I am grateful that my friend Eugenia made me aware of this day.  She did a post featuring many bloggers to raise awareness of this health topic. Heart disease for women presents differently than for men, and it is the number one killer of women. Please read her post here.

I also have some cardiovascular issues related to my autoimmune disease.

 I am glad to help spread awareness of National Wear Red Day.

It does highlight information that many women do not know.

 We are our own best advocates, so please take some time to be up to date with your health and read Eugenia’s post.

It was easy to incorporate red into my look. I added a furry vest over my coat, a style tip that I discussed recently. Both lightweight layers added warmth to the chilly day. The red vest added a nice pop of color to the overcast winter day. If you think this vest looks familiar, it is! You have seen it here when I wore it for Fashion Week.

I will also share some older looks of me, wearing various shades of crimson red.  Below are some red accessories and dresses that would have been good choices for National Wear Red Day.

You can also read more about this on Time magazine, online here.

With Valentine’s Day coming up there will lots of good reasons to wear red. Wear red if you love it! Always be conscious of your heart health.

Below two shots of my favorite reds! One is by Gucci on the higher end, via my theresa.  The second is by Zara, available on Poshmark.

  1. I had no idea this was wear red day even though I did a full post about red. Thanks for informing me.

    Love that furry vest.

    Funny enough you featured a dress that I thrifted and am wearing in my post on red. That one from Zara. Great minds think alike!


  2. A worthy cause to support! My dad died of a heart attack and it runs in my family – I do my best to take care of my health. I didn’t wear red during the day, but I’ll be wearing it tonight for a big gala I’m attending. Love your furry vest, Elle – have a wonderful weekend!
