Feminine Edge

H&M Trend Blazer, DIY Seven Cut Offs, Miu Miu Shoes, A. McQueen Scarf, Zara Belt, Lipstick: MAC Impassioned.
When I was the ages between 13-16, half of my closet consisted of pink clothes. Actually,  probably more than half my closet, more like 75% of my closet. I had clothes ranging in every single shade of pink from light pink to fuchsia. Needless to say, after that phase was up, I stayed away from pink for a long time. Especially with my blonde hair, I felt the combination was a bit…I don’t know, Barbie-ish? Eventually I got past my “no pink rule” but when I wear it, I like to combine it with opposite elements. In this case, I felt my cut off denim shorts and skull scarf provided a good balance between the softness and girlishness that I often associate with the color, adding an edgy element.

    That blazer & scarf combination is so chic! You look amazing!

  • Ana

    I love all these pink hues! Between the blazer, the lipstick, the nail polish, the scarf and the shoes, I think this is pink heaven without going overboard. This is truly proof that you can incorporate plenty of pink in your outfit without looking too Barbie-like. Gorgeous!

  • Toothfairy

    love the outfit. I think this outfit shows you can't give somebody a stamp on what they wear, because the blazer screams "cute!" and the scarf screams "rock 'n roll!"

  • JenlovesBal
