As a child I wore my fair share of pink. Ask my mom, and my favorite look was a pair of pink striped Osh Kosh B’Gosh. Then I went through my I hate pink phase in middle school & high school (dark plaid took over my life). In college I started wearing it again. Now, I don’t think twice about picking up a pink item. Hell I got a pair of Air Force 1’s in pastel pink. Most think of pink of girly, but for me its calming when I’m wearing blush, or fun when I wearing a bold bright pink. So when I saw this bubblegum suit from Eloquii, I just had to have it.
I have talked about suiting several times on the blog. As someone who is all about jeans and tee’s. I am finding suiting can be just as versatile as s good pair of jeans. This suit is two pieces from Eloquii, which is great because you can wear both pieces in a myriad of ways. One way is to take the pants, and wear it with a slouchy sweatshirt and flats. Another look is to wear the blazer with tee and jeans. For this look I paired the High Waisted Trousers with this great striped sweater from the Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen collaboration with Nordstrom. What I love about this look is that it looks great with the blazer or it can be worn alone.
Now I have been not been wearing heels for some time. I have been loving all the cute flats and sneakers in my arsenal, but for this look I really felt like a pair of white pumps would really set the look off. When it comes to pumps, Sam Edelman pumps are my go to’s. They make a classic pump in two different heels heights, and a myriad of colors, and even in wide width. I didn’t have a white pair, so when I found these on sale, I snapped them up with the quickness. Since these are not wide width and patent leather (which I have noticed can run a bit narrower), I went with a size 9. The height makes them easy to walk in, and I have room to add extra cushioning because let’s be real, all heels start to bother you after a while.
I will say that the coat of the season has been the Teddy Coat. Not only is super cute, its one of the warmest coats I own. There are several brands that came out with teddy coats in plus, but I went with this belted pink version from Eloquii. It is slightly oversized, so the 18/20 worked perfectly for me cause I can layer up without having to worry about not having enough room. Have you been embracing more pink in your life? Or is there another pastel in your life that you are coveting? Let me know in the comments. Muah!
