It's a darker red than it looks in this picture, not so tomato. It'll be very useful, I've got a few things that it goes very nicely with.
The weather is a bit warmer today so I'm thinking about being able to wear summer skirts and dresses. One thing I will be doing which is totally unfashionable is that I will wear sheer tights (pantyhose). I really do not like the fashion of wearing dresses/skirts with bare legs, unless you are on the beach that is. Most women's legs are not perfect and sheer tights help hide imperfections. It's rarely hot enough here to make this a problem with overheating.
