Im not usually a colour kind of girl, even in the spring and summer seasons. I tend to stick to more neutral and classic colours, play it safe as I like my wardrobe to be more classic rather than trendy. However, I do make the exception when it comes to the colour pink, be it blush pink or fushcia, I can’t get enough of the colour. Just how magpies are drawn to shiny things, I’m drawn to the colour pink, its always been my colour, my bedroom as a teenager was actually pink at some point, sad I know!
So as pink seems to be the colour of spring this year, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite pink pieces I have in my wardrobe right now and how I would style them. some of these pieces are new and some a little old, so I will try and link the actual item or something similar.
This mini Gucci GG Marmont bag is a new addition to my bag collection, its official colour is Nude, but it could also pass for a blush pink colour. Its a nice smooth, almost matte leather, with antique hardware and a chain shoulder strap. This bag is has a more dressy feel to it, I think because of the chain detail and the antique hardware. It can be worn across the body for a more casual look, but being the mini version you can’t fit an awful lot in it, perhaps a card holder, small set of keys, a lipstick and a few more small bits. You can also definitely use it as an evening bag and wear it on your shoulder.
I actually bought this beautiful blush pink leather biker jacket from All Saints last summer, so the one I have linked is a slighter lighter colour. I was pregnant at the time so had no intention of wearing it anytime soon, but as soon as I saw it I knew had to have it, I have weak spot for All Saints leather jackets. Who knew it would would still be on trend the next year. The leather is so soft, almost buttery and the silver hardware goes beautifully with the colour. I have worn this with light colour jeans, a white or grey top and loafers or white converse and recently I have teamed it with a more smarter outfit and it went perfectly. To be honest I don’t think there are any given rules when it comes to leather jackets, to me they go with anything, so have a play about.
My favourite piece of clothing to wear at the moment is the hoodie, I don’t care if it makes me look like I’m 16 years old, they are so comfy and easy to style, and of course my colour choice had to be this magenta pink. This particular one is from Topshop, but I have seen many on the high street, either in a oversized version like this one or a slighted fitted version. I have styled this with skinny jeans, both light and dark and converse, also with boyfriend jeans that are slighted fitted, being petite I didn’t want to wear everything oversized.
This top combines two trends in one for this season, pink and fluted arms. This was a bargain from Topshop, managed to get it in the sale, so I was very happy. Unfortunately this one has sold out online so I have linked one similar, you might still find it in store as the sales are still on. I have styled this embellished jeans and nude pumps for an evening look, but can easily be worn casually with plain jeans and flat pumps or even some converse.
Go and have play around with pink, even if its not your colour, for spring it will just give your wardrobe a small injection of colour and romance!
Thank you for having a read!
