Although garnets are found in many colors (the rarest being the blue garnet), red garnet is the birthstone for January, hence this month's theme. I have posted previously about trying to add more red to my wardrobe.  I'm still working on that, but for today's post I pulled out a favorite from my eShakti purchases.

This peplum top is from eShakti last spring, but I loved it so much I bought three colors.  For this one, I customized it by adding longer sleeves and I just adore it.  The knit makes it easy to wear and take care of and super comfortable.  I also brought in more red via my necklace.  I have these in a bunch of colors and just love how big and fun they are.  They can add such a pop of color to any outfit as well.

Now, I have to point out the jeans - they are leopard print!  I was so excited about buying these when they went on clearance because I was really stepping outside of my comfort zone.  The pattern isn't loud, but it is a pattern nonetheless - one that I never would have worn on my bottom half before.  When I ordered them, I somehow ordered them a size smaller and they didn't fit well.  Since I have recently lost some weight with my lifestyle changes, I tried them on again.  Not gonna lie, I was really excited to start rockin' them on a regular basis.  However, I need to get them altered because the legs are too big and the length seems too long. The waist fits well though.  *sigh*  Such is life.  I'm getting closer to being ready for a wardrobe sale soon!
