Is Pink a Neutral?
Hi friends! Welcome back! Okay if you follow me on Instagram you probably heard my whole saga about the fuchsia sweater I ordered last week. If not, long story short, I ordered a gorgeous hot pink/fuchsia sweater early last week. As I was thinking about ways to style it, I came up with the cutest idea, one that I was really excited about. Anyway, the sweater shipped the next day and was expected to arrive last Friday. On Thursday I realized the tracking hadn't updated since it shipped on Monday and I was planning on shooting on the weekend. I called Zara to see if they had any updates on it and of course they didn't so I figured it must have just gotten lost in transit. Here's the thing. When it comes to clothes/shoes/bags. When I have an outfit idea in my head, I won't stop until that outfit is fully executed. So anyway, in a panic, I frantically started scouring the internet for a similar sweater that could get here by Saturday. Luckily, I found one from the same store as the original sweater. Same exact color, equally cute, just a bit of a different style. I ordered it for express shipping and thank goodness it was delivered on Saturday, right in time for me to shoot the look I was excited about. LOL at me saying "long story short" and then telling the full long story anyway. I do this in real life too. I don't like to leave out details.
So here we are! I feel like around this time of winter every year I start getting the "color bug" as I like to call it. Okay, guys I'm cracking myself up. I've literally never said "color bug" before in my life. Anyway, what I mean is that in the fall I'm more drawn to neutrals, but once winter comes around, usually after the New Year, I start to get the urge to bring out the bright fun colors. Mainly pink. Almost always pink. I know most people like to wait until the spring for bright colors, but I just go where my soul takes me. I have literally always been obsessed with the color pink, literally since I was a little girl. If it were up to me pink would be a neutral by now. All shades of it. I had the cute idea to style this fuchsia sweater under my favorite herringbone print coat with a matching hot pink beanie. I felt like the colors would all work really well together and in my opinion I was right! I absolutely love how this outfit turned out. Definitely one of my favorite looks to date. All outfit details are listed below. Until next time, tootles sugar plums! Xoxo.
