OOTD: The pink parade.

Lots of the outfits I've put together recently have included a pink hue, whether it be blush or barbie hot pink. Not sure the source of my recent pink-madness, but I must say I'm enjoying it. I'm a girly-girl. There's no doubt. Pink has always been my favorite color, and with my light-ish colored skin and ruddy complexion (which oddly carries a more yellow tone on the rest of my body), I find I can (usually) wear it and have it be complementary. So, a premature apology for the amount of pink you're likely to see in the next few weeks.

(It really doesn't help that my new pink Zara blazer goes with just about everything in my closet... I heart it and want need it in black, stat!)

Top: BCBG Max Azria cashmere tee
Belt: BCBG Max Azria (the original Snakebite belt, heh)
Skirt: F21 striped mini
Shoes: Liliana Bardor pumps
Scarf: Tolani ombre linen scarf

(p.s., This is my "recreated" look from the post I did on Bazaar's recent issue.... most definitely inspired rather than a direct copy, but the mag gave me the idea, at least!)

Was it just in Dallas, or did Tolani scarfs take over the summer last year? It was probably regional, but  Tolani was the "hot" scarf to own... seen on Jessica Alba and Hillary Duff, most notoriously. The boutique I worked in carried tons, and all we did was dress in scarves last summer. Which means I have a ton, and I never seem to wear them anymore. I'm attempting to fix that and re-incorporate them into my spring wardrobe. We'll see how that goes... and if the weather cooperates!

  4. This is a really cute look. I know what you mean about getting on a role wearing the same color. I am that way with purple right now! But I definitely have a good chunk of my closet devoted to pink :)

  5. Aww, I love pink! And I'm also of a ruddy complexion with an odd-yellow cast to my face. What's up with that? It took me forever to find a foundation color to work- make up creators really want us pale white girls to be pink-complected, not yellow. *sighs*

    Cute outfit!

  7. I am loving your take on that outfit! Hehe, I have that same belt too! Also, I know what you mean about the scarves. I bought the Zig-Zag scarf at Kitson and I have only worn it like twice. I think it's that I prefer to wear chunky necklaces and you can't really do so with a scarf. But you look Awesome girl!!

  8. yeah, the zig zag ones were really popular! And I agree-- its the necklace thing I can't break. I like my necklaces big and bold, so it negates the scarf idea. and thank you. :)

  9. lol, another way were similar. Yeah, but because the red predominates my face (and ZITS), I get a yellow undertone foundation usually. By the end of the day I'm all blotchy again... argh. :-P
