Think Pink

pink

And to think, before I started blogging, I had about two pink (and zero orange or yellow) things in my wardrobe and now ... now I feel weird when I don't have some sort of punchy berry or citrus hue in my outfit. So for this last day in March, I present you with "fruit punch."

Thank you, fellow style bloggers, for inspiring me to venture outside my sartorial comfort zone. To think, I may have yet to discovered the visual joys of pink!

  2. I used to not have very much pink either! Mostly because my favorite color used to be green but it's changed into pink while I have been blogging!

    1. I still say my fave color is blue but I seem to wear a ton of citrus and berry hues nowadays.

  3. I adore orange and pink! I used to hate any shades of pink, but I really am starting to like it, especially paired with orange. Great combo that fashion bloggers have definitely influenced.

    1. Red and pink too - a beautiful color combo IMO and one I would have never tried before blogging.

  4. Adorable! I find myself drawn to monochrome outfits because they feel so polished, for some reason. And this color of pink looks really good on you!

  5. Although some may say the star of the show is the skirt - super gorj, btw - I think the quiet understudy steals the spotlight for me. That top! The subtle color-block of the collar. Perfection!

    Oh, and I loathed pink growing up - even banned it from my wedding - but then I had a daughter and I didn't stand a chance! :)

    1. Only problem with the shirt is that it is not a natural material, so when it gets real hot, I can't wear it because it just sticks on me! (Though shoot, when it gets real hot, everything does!)

  6. Love both the top and the skirt, and they are perfectly paired!

  7. Oh geez. I need this color combo in my life. So punchy and gorgeous. I love seeing you in brights without navy, black, or white to ground the colors. Such a refreshing, splashy, springy look! Going to my closet and scouring for corals and pinks this afternoon!

  10. Love the pink and peachy pink together! I also love how your hair flips up at the end! How in the world do you do that?!!! I can never get it to stay flippy for more than 20 minutes.

  20. I always look at the outfits I put together and think to myself - "would I really have worn this before getting into blogging?" Honestly, most of the time, I don't think I would have. It's way more fun getting creative, isn't it?

    I love the top and the punch of bright, especially at this time of year!

  24. Your blog was recommended by Lauren from Style of One's Own, and she mentioned that you also discussed Asian-American body issues in your posts. From what I've seen of your blog so far, you also have an amazing sartorial eye. Pink and orange seems overwhelming at first thought, but this look is perfect for a summer day.
