The Business of Pink

Pink Blazer & Stripes
The fear of being labeled a frivolous girly girl kept me away from pink and all of its shades for years. Now that I embrace being as girly as I want (in addition to all the other things I am), I may go overboard from time to time. 
You know, just some pink lipstick here, a little pink nail polish there. Maybe a bright blazer for special occasions. Or, you could do all three if you really mean business that day, because being that committed to pink has to be handled like business.
"FOR THE SAKE OF NOT GOING FULL ON ELLE WOODS, I'VE GOT TO BALANCE IT WITH CLASSIC NEUTRALS."
For the sake of not going full on Elle Woods, I've got to balance it with classic neutrals: a striped sweater and black jeans. The truth is, though, once you decide to go that pink, there's no going back.

  3. love the pop of pink & the way you grounded it. Ha ha! Elle Woods. I have to admit, I've always loved Legally Blonde;) Perfect example of how an interest in fashion can go hand in hand with a great big heart:)

  5. I shamefully watched Legally Blonde 50 times when I was in high school, haha. You do pink so well and not at all full blown Elle style :)

  17. Girl pink is your color! So glad you have embraced it. If I was you, I would always be wearing that lipstick. I love how the blazer feels like it was made for this outfit. I'm obsessed with the length.
