pink girl















Top: Poof Excellence, TJ Maxx (USA)
Skirt: Barkins, thrifted
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell, Edge of Urge

I never thought I'd ever say it, but I think my new favorite color is pink! I've been wearing it a lot lately, a fact that is very much apparent in my last several outfit posts. I lean more towards the fuschia and hot pink end of the spectrum, mostly because of the way it clashes with my hair.

It's funny to me, though, because growing up, I was never a pink girl. When my sister and I were children, whenever we wanted the same thing, she'd choose it in pink and I in blue.


I think we got these in 1998


Over the years, it's sort of been hammered into my brain that pink was off-limits...but now that we've stopped wanting all of the same things, I've found that I can finally choose pink -- and recently, I've been doing it in overdrive to make up for all the years I've been without that particular color.

So expect much more pink from me in the future. :)

Pink looks very nice on you. Pink used to be off limits for me too yet for some reason I look cute in it. haha. Love this outfit SO VERY MUCH. I posted it as modest inspiration of the day on my tumblr: http://rubyeyedokapi.tumblr.com I hope that you'll get many more readers when I also feature it on my own blog too on Saturday or Sunday. I really love your style and am so glad I've been able to read through it over the past couple of weeks.

You are too cool for words. I mean, someone with hair that is that magically awesome deserves to be linked...and tagged. Something I am about to do!

pink looks AMAZING on you!!! Those are the craziest, chicest versions of those super popular platforms I have seen yet, and the rest of the outfit is SO good with it! Your hair makes me crazy jealous, and that pink lipstick is so perfect on your cute lips :D
