Who says you can't mix red and pink?

15 April 2011












I totally wish I could have gotten a better shot, but this skirt is actually a
pair of PANTS. Yes, that is right, flowy, billowy pants. Half of the reason that
I love them so much is that they are so fun to walk in. I went to the grocery
store in them (yesterday when I took these photos) and I swear getting milk and
cereal was 100x more fun. Easily entertained? Possibly, but maybe you
should try it out for yourself. I paired this pink top with the pants, not
realizing exactly how red these pants were. It's definitely a different color
combination for me, but I am very pleased with the turnout.

Hooray that it is Friday! I am
going to make sure that mine is relaxing, starting with a sushi date with
the boy tonight. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

I think red and pink look great together! I also like how your ring, belt and bag all have different reddish tones to them. It all works together beautifully.

Bad Taste Toast said...

Wow, the red and pink combo definitely works in this look because this rich red of the pants is simply beautiful! I can't even believe these are pants, they are so floaty, they must be so comfy! I love clothes that look extremely chic but are wonderfully comfortable at the same time :)

Oh and I once again borrowed one of your photos for another inspiration post on my blog. I hope that's still ok for you ;)

Have a lovely weekend!

You are one of my favourite bloggers; your style is gorgeous and you look like Snow White, which is delightful! I'm from Scotland, where most girls our age are disturbingly attatched to their fake tan, so it's really refreshing to see someone rocking the pale as you do. Keep blogging and much love, Rebecca xx

That's cool that they are pants, but perhaps think of taking an "action" shot of you walking or something to show it? Just a suggestion... Good look though.

Those are some insanely cool pants. I've toyed with the idea of getting some because they do look so much like a skirt. Anyway, you look great, as usual. :)

To wear red and pink together is a challenge, you have to love those colours or they could play awful tricks...and obviously being pretty is a good start : )
