Summer is starting to come to a close and don’t get me wrong, I love fall. But I’m trying to squeeze in a few more days of summer clothes before the vests come out. I bought this skirt at the beginning of the summer on a whim and it has been my go to piece! First of all it’s pink, which makes it fabulous. Plus it’s very comfortable and bonus, has pockets! The perfect skirt if you ask me. So enjoy those summer clothes for a few more days before my favorite season begins! XO
Pastels, specifically pale pink are some of my favorite colors to wear all year long. The key for me in fall and winter is to wear them with darker colors, so I’m not washed out or too springy. Take this shirt for example- the perfect transitional piece because it is a thicker material, but still short sleeves. This shirt is also one of those pieces that is universally liked. The first time I wore it, my Italian teacher told me I looked like I had just walked out of a Chanel ad (might be the best compliment I’ve ever received). It is perfect for wearing with pink because it is feminine, but not too girly so you look feminine, but you aren’t trying to hard. XO
Fun Fact: My two best friends are huge One Direction fans so I have become one as well. Their new song, Drag Me Down, recently came out and was not my favorite, but the music video is awesome and makes me like the song more every time.
As you can probably tell by now, I love to wear pink. But for some reason, I have always struggled to incorporate these shorts into my wardrobe. But I have a trick and my family and friends will tell you how often I say this…just pretend it’s black. Whenever I have trouble wearing something, normally it’s because I have trouble with the idea, in this case, pink polka dot shorts don’t go with anything! But if you pretend it’s black, then you can truly figure out fun outfits and it helps you get out of your comfort zone. Any fun ideas for wearing difficult pieces? XO
Fun Fact: My favorite movie right now is Age of Adeline with Blake Lively because I am obsessed with Blake Lively plus the costumes are INCREDIBLE. If you are looking for a cute love story, I would definitely recommend this!
What does every outfit need? A little bit of pink! I wear a lot of black and navy, but I adore pink in almost every form. And I have found that the best way to wear pink is as an accessory to brighten up my otherwise neutral outfits. I love this shade of pale pink because it is extremely versatile and very feminine, but not overly girly. For this outfit at least, it just adds that extra pop and turns an otherwise boring outfit into a statement. Do you have any tricks for wearing pink or brightening up neutrals? XO
