Le Pink

If you thought Pink was having a moment last year and the year before, it’s biggest moment is still to come, I feel it hasn’t peaked yet. It started off subtly in blush and nude tones and has evolved onto the scene in all shades from fuschia and cerise to dusty pink and cherry.  What I love about it, is that the variety of the shades are endless ensuring theres one if not three out there for everyone.  When worn with black or military green it can easily be ‘de-girlified’ and worn with white or pale denim gives such a great summery cool vibe, especially against a gorgeous tan.

There are so many lovely colour combo’s for pink.  If you aren’t scared of colour wear bright pink with bright red or plum.

Ways to wear pink

It’s a great Saturday colour 😉 Have a lovely weekend

Day to Night

One of the trickiest transitions when it comes to dress code when there’s no time to shower and redress for an evening out is how to go from grubby to glam! (which is normally the way when we’ve been hard at work all day, be it in meetings or running after kids up until 7pm). Anthropologie has the best array of clothing and accessories for the new season no matter what your style.

I love this light weight cotton blouse, the perfect style to smarten up a pair of jeans, the frilled hem and high neck give it such a classy feel while the print and colours keep it relaxed and fun for an evening drink. It also comes in Petite which is such a bonus! Basically if you are under 5ft3 (me on the dot) you fall into that category (i.e Short!)

This year the weather has been ruthless and has dumped us right in the middle of Autumn with no warning. Last night was cold and I was very grateful for this wool hat.  The blustery weather that comes along with Autumn is the perfect time to maximise the use of the hat, not only is it so chic and finishes off an outfit so well but it keeps the fly-away hair in place.

When day turns to night, nothing quite adds that touch of glamour like a faux fur jacket, it’s simple and warm!   This pale pink beauty has the most gorgeous suede cuffs and waist band and the pale pink neutral is sure to work with any evening outfit, it would look amazing over a black dress.

Of course changing over bags is a real pain and when there’s no time for that the perfect day to evening bag is something small and light but with enough space to tuck away all the “stuff” that we seem to require. This little hands free black calf hair and leather bag with a cobalt blue tassel has all the panache an evening bag needs, plus it has a two zipped sections for extra storage.

Red and Pink Trend

Two colours trending now are Red and Pink. I personally think both colours can be quite over powering but at the same time love them both, in small doses. An idea of how to incorporate them both into one look.  

 This silk luxe skirt is perfect for dressing up and down but my favourite way to wear it is with sneakers and a tee! Follow me on Instagram for more regular tips and styling pics.

Shades of Pink

I don’t think about it all year around and then spring arrives and I see it all over and reminds me that even though I never wear it and think I don’t really like pink, I actually do. I love pink. Who doesn’t like pink!?! So this was reiterated again when this last week I spent quite a bit of time with a client who really loves pink. She’s one of those true pink fans, you know the ones that need to be told that they don’t need another pink tee, and their response is “but it’s not the same” 💕💗 I mean it in the best way possible. She loves every shade of pink. I want to thank her for reminding me how gorgeous pink is and how some shades really do compliment my skin tone! If you think you cannot wear pink, think again. Everyone can wear pink you just need to pick the right tone for your skin, so whether it’s rose, blush, fuscia, cerise, salmon, coral, magenta (the list goes on) there’s one out there for you.

Last year I spotted a gorgeous dress, I loved it for the style and not the colour (so I thought) then I tried it on and fell in love with the pale rose colour. However I did not make the purchase, I couldn’t think of an occasion that I was going to use it for so very sensibly put it back (doesn’t sound like me at all) and I kind of regret it! I have picked out some pretty pink items that I love and hopefully you do too.

Candy Coated Pink Perfection

I havent seen so much pink around since I was a little girl.   Street style snaps of the pretty pink tones have been spotted all over the world during fashion week’s and I am surprisingly in love with all this candy coated loveliness. Coveting a few pink garments myself (I have already purchased a few) Check out some of my style steals in the coat links below too, all under £100!!

Babydoll Dress Zara //  Satchel Topshop //  Rose Gold Textured Top Topshop //Pink pocket tee J.Crew // A line skirt Whistles  //Leather heels Kurt Geiger // Coat similar at ASOS and Reiss and my favourite style steals at Topshop and ASOS

Tips: 1) Wear the babydoll dress with a pair of converse for an edgier look.  2) Wear the Leather A line skirt with a tee, KG pink shoes and Pink Satchel Bag all together for a chic monochrome look to the office. 3) Get the daytime lustre spot on with this Rose gold Topshop top, it would look amazing with white on the bottom, whether its a pair of white jeans or white tailored trousers. 4) wear your pink coat draped over the shoulders and the satchel bag as a cross body for extra fashion points 😉
