"" FutureLint (I have nothing to wear!): Pinky

Pinky

I do not wear pink. I never have. I mean, I own a few items of pink clothing, but generally I look bad in pink so I just don't buy pink stuff.  I looked over the past year of outfits on my flickr, and only twice did I wear pink. The pink pants and the dress with hot pink sequins. That's it! For the whole year! I guess this is a bit of a coraly pink but whatever. It counts as wearing pink in my book.
Collar - thrifted
Thermal shirt - Target
Skirt - thrifted The Lodge
Ombre tights - Target
Shoes - MIA

Considering how much I dislike wearing pink, I sure do love this outfit (and the other two pink outfits from this year, actually!) Tomorrow I'm going to the Farewell Show at the 501 Club and I'm super excited... it's a great music venue and my favorite spot for brunch... their falafel hash was amazing! I am sad they are closing though! Otherwise, I suspect the weekend will involve lots of football watching and etsy listing. Have a good one!

I love that collar with this. And the pink. I'm not a pink person either but I got hot pink lipgloss last night. And I kind of love it. And this outfit is swell.

I'm with Erin - the collar is a stroke of genius!

Rebecca said...

I agree with Erin and Sal. That collar is amazing.

Wow. I love this outfit too, and your pink trousers in the other post. Is this the start of a new friendship??

I have been reading your blog for a few weeks now and just realized that you're in the cities. I am going to try the 501 brunch for the first and last time on saturday :(
I love your shoes. I have been thinking lately that I absolutely need to add a pair of grey shoes to my collection!

A third on the collar loving. Also, way to branch out. I also really don't go for pink, but I do like this muted rose color.
Also the tights are pretty genius.

I didn't realize they had ombre tights at Target! I feel like I must find some immediately... Pink isn't out of my comfort zone but, if I had a collar like that I couldn't know what to do with it. Great styling :)

I love the collar, it looks like something you'd spend all day petting. The tights are so bright and fun. Makes me reconsider my stance on pink.

Oooohhh! Love the collar! Great item and this is the perfect way to wear it.

A shade of pink is Pantone's color for 2011, so you're in good company. And with such bright colors and a furry collar, you're bound to stay warm.

My tights always turn ombre if I'm lazy putting them on - too much fabric at the bottom, not enough at the top.

I think you look great in pink! And yes, I agree with above comments, that collar is incredible.

Kimberly said...

Well, if you are going to wear pink this is definitely the way to do it!! Loving the fur collar and the ombre tights. Have a fab weekend!

I am SO not a pink person. I don't think I own any items of pink, at all. I feel like a goober when I wear them.

You, however, may have just converted me. This is fabulous!

I love pink! hehe Those tights are great! I love the whole outfit and not just because it's pink, the fur collar is amazing and the polka dots add fun to your pretty outfit. =D

I'm in love with the pink and grey combo.
