Clutch: Louis Vuitton
I am a girl’s girl through and through. I prefer champagne and chocolate over pizza and beer, I always reach for heels over flats, and prior to this pregnancy you’d find me choosing dresses over pants anytime – day or night. I really don’t have male friends (other than my husband) and there’s nothing I love more than a good night of dishing with my favorite ladies.
I think I’ve told you before that when we found out that we were expecting, I automatically thought it would be a girl. Growing up, it was just my sister and I, and for some reason the idea of having a boy was just so incredibly foreign to me. To go along with all that, I envisioned pink. Pink ribbons. Pink bows. Pink tutus. Beautiful pale pink ballerina slippers. (Generalizing much? You think?) Pink, pink, pink. I even had dreams about a beautiful baby girl being placed in my arms at the hospital.
Well… needless to say, when we found out we were having a boy, those visions quickly came to an end. There’s always next time! 🙂 They were replaced with visions of baby blue and grey – equally beautiful – just different. Visions of mother/son dances, sporting events, and sweet little boy hugs are now all I can think of, and obviously, I’m equally as happy.
Anyhow, babies aside, I still love a beautiful pale pink. I think there is something about the color that is just so feminine. It is so chic, so classic, and it never feels like it is trying too hard. Last week, Marissa Webb sent a stunning pale pink pantsuit down the runway at NYFW and I almost died. Then, pink and bows galore popped up at Kate Spade’s RTW presentation (no surprise there), and then again at JCrew (see here, here and here <<< OMG THAT SKIRT!!) and my happy – little – ready to wear – heart sang.
So — fashion week truly was the inspiration for this post. It is no secret that I love the pale pink coat trend, see here, and I was so happy to see it popping up again. As opposed to the furry pink coat I love for winter, this soft twill variety is perfect for spring. I love pairing it with camel and gray as I did in this post, (please excuse the maternity jeans— ooof I am soo sick of them — only another month and a half), and eventually I’ll pair it with white jeans and gold sandals as summer approaches.
If you haven’t hopped on the pale pink train, I suggest you try it. You’ll be oh-so happy you did!
