All remixed except tights
Boots: Nine West
Y'all, I thought I was only going to be able to do a week of pink, for BBCA, but I think I can go a bit longer. And if you haven't already, you should check out Melissa's blog and see what the brain behind BBCA is up to.
Also, this is my first foray into tights layering. I got a pair of hot pink tights with BBCA in mind, but they're hot pink, you know? HOT PINK! And while there are plenty of ladies that pull off things like hot pink tights with style and panache, I am afraid of wearing them alone right now. So I threw a grey pair on over the hot pink and settled for this dusty rose/lilac/silver color. The effect is almost what we call in Spanish tornasol (see definition 2), which basically means that it changes color depending on the light.
I kind of like the way it turned out, pink without being shocking. You know what else I like? This scarf. The pattern is pretty and it's light and airy. It echoes the pink (and other colors) of my tights while not being too matchy-matchy.
