BRIGHT PINK

A LITTLE UNUSUAL Did you know that I never,ever wear pink ( I am talking about clothes, you know how much I love bright pink lips)? You know, the kind of very bright and girly one. As you might know one of my fashion-passion is to  mix and match various colours, the colour block trend, by the way, has always been my favourite. So why never trying out pink? I have always thought that a girl with blonde hair shouldn’t wear this shade. Why? Well simply because of the too obvious connotation with  Barbie. Perhaps to some of you this may sound like something not important at all, but I have always disliked the over-girly looks that have absolutely nothing subtle. Looking like a doll, isn’t that a little bit sad? Well for me wearing it was the easiest thing to look like one (especially because I already have a sort of a doll face) so pink : bye bye!


I found it quite sad to avoid a colour like that, so I decided to take up the challenge and to wear pink in casual and stylish way. When I saw those pants in Zara, they directly popped into my eyes. So, I wanted to pair them with very neutral shades, mainly black and white. That way the pink really stands out. I combined to the whole look a little Chanel vintage bag, just to add some elegance and casual chic to the look. Plus, a little bit of pink lipstick from YSL. What do you think? Is pink in or out?

By the way guys, I am finally on twitter! Can’t believe I’ve waited so long to make an account. Check out my profile and see you soon!

Ohh,nice look!

I love love the way your fur coat peeks out of your jacket! It’s super sophisticated and it looks like it was originally one piece! It’s definitely a great way to “sophisticate-ize” a super girly clothing item…even if your lips are of the same colour! ;)

Your not alone, I’m a blonde too and I hate that connection with barbie.

But hey, doesn’t matter. I’m not dressing up for someone else.

Lovely styling xo

The pink pants are looking real cute and stylish! :)

Love it! You styled the pants perfectly to make sure they don’t look too barbie-ish :p Eleanor xx

you look so pretty! Love the bright pink combo with the pants and lips. Xo

gorgeous pink pants. and you look beautiful in the last photo!

The pants are great. Not very barbie-like at all. I think pastel colors and light pink are much more girly girly.

i really like the outfit, I think pink isn’t so dramatic for the blond ones, if they know how to wear it, and u did it great!

Love the fur also!

How can you walk in those shoes for the whole day?

Love this look! Jeans are the best way to inject a bit of brightness into your look, it is important to keep the rest of the look neutral.
This outfit does not make you look like Barbie at all, I think it’s very chic and sophisticated, like yourself ;-)

Very chic look! Love that you toned down the brightness of the pants with neutrals, makes such a bright color super wearable this time of year!

http://www.rachelslookbook.com

Absolutely perfect outfit!
You have such a bright smile btw!

I have always felt exactly the same about wearing pink! That I’d look like a bimbo or something but you wear it so well :)

http://kissonmychic.blogspot.com

You are so beautiful!!

I completely get what you are saying about Barbie. Too much pink + blonde hair = tacky. However, I do like the way you paired the pink pants with neutrals. Def not Barbie-esque. Love it :)

Oh i know this, i’m blonde, too, and i hate wearing things in bright pink shades.. But i think this look is good for trying out something new, well made :)

You combined the pink pants greatly. You still look elegant!!

http://www.antoniaivana.blogspot.com

Hey I truetly think the opposite, to be honest nothing against dark/or brown hair they are beautiful too but i always found that pink looks simply better on blond!! Perfect example is you…you should wear more pink, looks so nice with your hair and your skin..DUMPS UP

hey…be happy to have a doll face plenty womens do plastic surgery for a doll face…

I adore your hot pink jeans! I also didn’t like wearing pink for the same reason, even if I’m not that blonde. I don’t like being too girly. But you look fantastic.
I also created a twitter account last week. I’m already following you there.

Love it!
And i have the same shoes!

You look pretty :)
