Early this spring, I claimed I wasn’t a big fan of pink. Well here am I with another post wearing this pink skirt, and a closet full of this shade. Seriously, I don’t know what happened. It’s as if I suddenly fell in love with this color and had to make up for all the lost time. On another note, the same thing is also happening with yellow. But, more on that later.
Not only am I crushing on pink, but also I’m having a moment with paper bag waists. It all started when I traveled to Japan, this style is so on trend there. I bought these yellow pants in Tokyo and have collected a few more with paper bag waist detail ever since including this skirt. I find it extremely flattering and great in creating the smaller waist illusion. In addition, it also makes every outfit look more chic and higher end.
Although dresses are basically all I wear come spring/summer, I’m not so keen about skirts. Weird, right? But I’m actually making an effort nowadays to add more skirts to my wardrobe. As soon as I saw this faux wrap pink skirt, I knew I’d love it. Not only because of the waist, but also because of the front slip, color and most important of all those big pockets!
I actually wore this outfit when I was in San Diego and I have to admit it’s one of my favorite daytime looks. So simple; pink skirt white tee, slides, and a hat, yet the pop of color and the whole vibe makes it so effortlessly chic. A lady actually came up to me to compliment the look and to tell me: “it’s well put together”.
The small details such a pink ribbon on the hat, and the white slides really tied the whole outfit together, from head to toe.
