Pretty in Pink this Spring

For someone who loves neutrals and mostly avoids colour - I am surprised to say that pink has been my new best friend.

In the last couple of seasons, pink has been going strong and the fad doesn't seem to be dying out so I have been gravitating towards all the pretty shades available. Musky, pastel and muted are my preferred shades and suit my style the most but there are some amazing bright fuschias out there which have also caught my eye, more so for special occasions or for statement accessories.

I am finding as I get older I am exploring colour a bit more as black can be a bit harsh for me when I am noticeably tired or on a day when I am wearing minimal or no makeup, therefore, have been turning to colour to help my skin glow. For me, pink can still be neutral and adds a touch of femininity to your look.

I have had my eye on this Portmans blazer for a while now and particularly love the style of it as it can be worn dressed up or down. The gold button detail adds a touch of glam and I love the cut - a subtle ode to the 90's power-woman style without being too boxy. 

I teamed it with a dusk pink leather skirt for a monochromatic look but would also look great with a pair of boyfriend jeans and cami.

Now this dress, I love! (can you tell by the smile on my face), and to be honest, a few months ago I probably wouldn't have considered it. But the muted tones and the floral print won me over. It's definitely one of those dresses which looks much better on rather than on the hanger. 

The fit was divine and the style is classic enough to be able to wear it to numerous occasions. I loved adding a pop of red with my shoes but a pair of gold or black would have worked just as well.

Even though the dress has a sheen to it, making it perfect for special occasions, the dress is cotton so you can get away with wearing it more casual - just chuck on a denim jacket or a cute pair of sneaks.

What do you think? Is pink your thing?
