Pink is my favorite color. Always has been, and I’m thinking it might aways be. In the past, I’ve been worried about looking too girly, or too saccharine – but with the resurgence of “millennial pink” I’m embracing my favorite shade!
Another trend that I’ve begun to love is the dressing in monochrome, one of various shades of the same color. So why not combine my two loves in this latest outfit!
Ironically, I feel wearing ALL pink adds more caché and less sweetness than a single pink piece. So I went all out! These gorgeous pink pants from Topshop were an absolute steal, and the sweater is the softest cashmere you’ll ever feel and less than $70 to boot!
I splurged a bit on the coat, but I feel that it’s worth it given the perfect shade of pastel pink and my tendency to wear coats for many years to come! Walking around the city, I felt heads turn to see a woman in an entirely bubblegum outfit…but in a good way! Lastly, I topped my look with a Parisian-inspired beret to add an extra layer of chic. What do you dolls think? Would you rock an entirely pink look?
As a previous New Yorker, black is definitely the go-to in my wadrobe, but since I’m back down South, I’ve loved experimenting with color more. However, one my favorite looks has got to be the absence of color… I’m talking all white. Winter white to be exact! Last year, I shared one of my favorite winter outfits – and this year I’m sharing a new take on the monochromatic look!
Instead of simply throwing on a sweater, this year I opted for a tissue turtleneck (so soft and comfy) and a winter white blazer! People may think a white or cream blazer is hard to pull off, but I almost love it more than a black blazer. It’s still easy to pair, not over the top, BUT you stand out! It looks fresh, and believe me…it’s unique and classic at the same time.
While I have a cream blazer I love, this double-breasted one from Veronica Beard brings the glam! I love the gold buttons (they almost look like Balmain) and the black detailing on the collar is such a nice touch! Of course, I love to be business on top and rock and roll below, so I paired my look with my go-to distressed jeans from TopShop. These jeans run about $80 and they’ve lasted me season after season (as you can see from last year’s post).
So what do you dolls think? Would you rock all white this season?
While many thing winter can be a drab time of year, it’s actually one of my favorite times to wear white and color! And while I tend to usually add color with my tops or shoes – sometimes, I like to go bold with a colorful coat.
This statement coat by J.Crew has been one of my favorites for many years. I love to layer it over neutrals like all black, all grey, winter white, and even softer shades of pink. For this look, I opted for distressed jeans, my favorite cashmere turtleneck (I think grey sweaters are heaven-sent) and a nude heel to ground my look. Of course, being a Florida girl – no look is complete without sunglasses! I found this pair in the most gorgeous shade of ruby red on sale at Anthropologie! Yes you heard me right…they’re not designer, and in fact…they’re less than $40!
Sometimes adding a pop of color to a Winter look can make all the difference. I love adding in another color (or another touch of the same color) to add some more whimsy. So this winter, re-think the all black and give going bold a try!
