Blush pink

As many young girls have, there was a time when I would have proclaimed that pink was the best color in the world, and was delighted to have everything I could get my hands on in the shade. After the pink obsession subsided around age 10 (and I was stuck with screaming pink bedroom walls for another four years after that) I really kept my distance from the color. I favored red, reasoning it was more sophisticated and adult, I adored blue, I dabbled in purples, anything but pink.

Yet, I've found myself with a new affinity for the shade, especially in blush. Admittedly since I started blogging I stopped generally disliking most colors, finding that there is a time, place, and garment to love them all.

  1. Pink is still my favorite color. The blush color looks awesome with leopard.

  2. I, too, went through my pink phase - I was older, and it was a form of teenaged rebellion for me, because my parents are very egalitarian people who always encouraged my brother and I not to veer towards anything too gender specific. As a little girl I was always dressed in reds and blues, so when I was older, all I wanted was pink. Once I gave it up, I've pretty much stayed away, unless you count wearing pink lipsticks and nail polishes. I can't imagine what would make me start wearing pinks again myself but I do love blush shades on others and this dress suits you just perfectly - I particularly love the more modern necklace layered over it, it's not often pink and aztec go together but they really do work!

  3. Blush + the leopard is perfect, lady! And I'm with you- had a huge pink phase, then outgrew it. I dabble in pink now, but it has to be the right shade, for sure! This blush is gorgeous.

  4. I recently read an article about pink making a comeback with women and it was really shadowing your sentiments here. I personally have always been a sucker for a pale pink shade. You look great in this color with your fairer skin and dark hair!

  5. I love how you paired it with the leopard. This dress looks great on you.

  6. I love blush pink, and that dress is so pretty on you! I agree with what you said about blogging--I've been inspired to try (and usually like!) so many things/colors that I always thought weren't "me" because of it.

  7. I've come to really appreciate blush over the last year - so I love this!

  11. I am such a fan of blush-it can be worn with so many ways and is lovely as a stand alone color as well! This dress is such a flattering cut on you! Gorgeous!

  12. I'm with you! No color is a bad color ... but I admit I can't get on board with purple!

  13. Superb dress! I love the structure and the color of this dress!

  14. That dress is lovely! I love the short sleeves and the pockets :)

  15. Such a pretty dress.
    Colors can be tricky. They can be on trend, they can look good or bad with certain complexions and then there is personal taste... I just wear them all.

  16. I totally agree with you about colors, I am open pretty much to all of them now. Love this pretty dress on you.


    Hope to see you for TBT Fashion link up.
