Outfit: Blush


A few years ago I probably wouldn’t have been caught dead in such a feminine, pink outfit as this! Even though I love to wear dresses I never saw myself as a girly-girly and barely had a stitch of pink clothing in my closet. Times have changed in some ways—I’m now dressing head-to-toe in blush tones and adding bows and tulle and tiny jeweled heels to the mix! But I’m still very likely to wreck a dress while trying to climb a tree and loads of my heels are muddy, a testament to my desire to get off the beaten path.
 And if ever there was a time appropriate to wear so much pink it is this week with Valentine’s Day approaching! It’s hardly my favorite holiday, but since I am with Thomas this year I’m more in the mood for love than usual. Although my days are not all romantic outings and chocolate hearts, I can at least dress as if life isn’t intruding with more practical matters! Since I believe clothes can change your mood, why not wear your most fantastic skirt and pretend you’re living in the opening song of Funny Face (Think Pink)? So that’s my goal this week—romantic outfits no matter the occasion. Today it was fun to get out my sweet blush skirt by Space 46 Boutique and with my pink coat on top I was still dressed practically enough for the season.

So gorgeous! With the tulle skirt and the ban.do heart this outfit kind of reminds me about my wedding, I was wearing a very red heart headband in the hair and a cute short dress. I can relate about pink, until recently I haven't been really a lot into it, but lately I don't care if it's considered girly or not, I just feel good around pink :)

These photos are so beautiful! It's hard to believe that you wouldn't have worn that much pink a couple of years ago because blush tones really suit you. Then again, I also went through a similar phase where I avoided the color in order to avoid looking so "girly." This outfit really is beautiful, and that skirt makes you look like a dancer.

Adore this! ... Altho I have no plans whatsoever for V-Day (and actually am afraid to dress-up, because it may just make me feel even more alone ...) I may just possibly take you up on your challenge :)

A very beautiful blush toned outfit, I love it. The tulle is so cute and I love all the accessories, very nice!

So gorgeous! I adore the whimsical feel of your outfit, and it's made even more perfect with the setting you chose.

I find it funny how sometimes you think a color is totally not for you, only to turn around and love it so much later on ~ that absolutely happened to me too! I used to think that blush pink/baby pink was awful and now it's my most favorite color and I wear it all the time.... So I love your outfit so much! Pus, bows forever. :) ❤

I've already felt that your style is slowly changing. You used to say you don't want to be saccharine. I wonder if you would classify this as "saccharine" and if you're already okay with that now.

As always I'm amazed by the pictures. I am still not in the right mind set to wear such a beautiful girly outfit, but I loved seeing you wearing it. And the places you shot made everything look like a fairy tale.
