Valentine Pink

Posted by Devin

 
Am I the only person that likes to wear pink and red during the month of February? Of course those are the traditional colors for Valentine's Day, but I don't really know if wearing them is a thing or if it's just me. Either way, I couldn't pass off the opportunity to wear this pretty pink polka dot (say that five times fast) sweater for this week's fashion post.
 
 
It's such a fun shade of pink, almost bordering on coral. And I love that the polka dots have a gold tone to them instead of the traditional white. 
 
 
I paired the sweater with some boot cut khaki pants, a button down denim shirt, and one of my favorite pair of heels. I thought the neutral base really allowed the sweater to pop.
 
 
I wasn't completely sure about the cut of this sweater at first. I was expecting it to be a bit more fitted, but instead it is loose and flowy. After wearing it for awhile, though, I decided that I really like the more slouchy, casual look. And it's super comfortable.
 
 
And what's your say on boot cut pants? I have been sticking to skinnies most of the time lately, but I still love a great pair of wide-ankle pants. I just don't think they will ever go completely out of style.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you find something bright and fun to wear this Valentine's Day!
 
What I Wore:
Pink Sweater - Garnet Hill
Khaki Pants - Gift
Denim Shirt - (Similar from H&M)
Heels - Ross
Gold Pen Necklace - Gift

That really is a fun shade of pink. And yes...I always reach for the pink (especially when its polka dot!)

I REALLY like the color of that sweater! I'm not a big pink person, but that is a color I could definitely wear. I'm going to try to break out the pink and red next week... I love Valentines!

I think I'll always love bootcut pants...and that sweater really is cute!! I actually have a tradition with myself of wearing my red turtleneck paired with my pink vest at some point during the first two weeks of every February. :P

I keep meaning to try the button up under sweater look but have yet to. This look is very cute, especially with the polka dots! Love the color.

I remember when it was all about boot cut!! Nobody ever wore skinny jeans like they do now! I love the look of them. It's weird how they still have a 70's vibe even though they were really popular in the 'naughties'.

I can't get enough layering lately. I'd better live it up since an AZ summer is looming soon. Layering's not the best in 110 degrees, lol! Thanks for stopping by Vicki!

It's so true! Skinny jeans were such a no-no and everyone wore boot cut! Thanks for stopping by Corinne!
