A little slice of pink sheds light



Scarf: gift, Tee: Liz Lange for Target, Skirt: Liz Lange for Target, Bracelet: Groopdealz

I'm a red head so I don't own a lot of pink and now that I'm pregnant, I definitely lack pink in my wardrobe so when we were asked to wear pink to show breast cancer awareness at work last week I had to search my closet.  

Luckily I'd been gifted this pretty scarf a few years ago by a coworker as part of our Secret Santa exchange.  Throughout the day a lot of my students were asking me where my pink was and they were unsatisfied with the little bit I had on.  


Truth is, there are a lot of colors like pink that I'm lacking in my wardrobe.  Until recently (a.k.a until I started blogging) I was really conservative and careful with my wardrobe.  Primarily because I was unsure of what people would say if I went too bold or bright.  

It's funny to me now when I look in my closet that at one point people teased me for the amount of black I wore or the fact that I was strictly neutrals only.  Now, when you look in my closet, it is flooded with prints, brights, vibrant hues, and even trends!  I've always loved clothes; always admired fashion and always had an eye for it, but now I find myself venturing out and trying those things I admire.

Printed pants, neon accents, faux leather trim, and booties to name a few.  Fashion is so fun!  It is all about you and who really cares what other people have to say about it?!

  1. Amen! I love playing with fashion. I'm still reserved in some areas (ie printed pants) but I'm getting more adventurous!

  2. I agree! Being a fellow red head, I don't let fashion decide if I can wear a color not! One of my favorite colors to wear is red! I of course love pink too! If you like the way you look in something don't let the color stop you. So many people use "that doesn't go with my coloring" as an excuse not to wear something. I believe everyone can rock any color!

  3. So funny, I don't have a lot of pink in my wardrobe either, so today I am wearing a pink scarf my mom gifted me last year. It's all pink so you can't miss it :)
