Color Adventures: Oh Joy! Wears Pink...

This year, we're giving Color Adventures a fresh new spin! Every month, we'll focus on taking one color (or a range of tones) and using it as inspiration for both outfits and rooms. This January we're all about PINK! Pink used to be one of my least favorite colors, but now I love it to no end. Here are four bright outfits to wear...some fancy, some casual, and all perfectly pink!

Power Pants — Since these pants are hot, hot, HOT pink, I paired it with a soft floral pink patterned blouse. I kept the accessories metallic and neutral with silver heels and my current favorite black and gold bag. This is a super easy and fun outfit to wear to the office or around during the week. It's casual but still chic and put together. Also, I have worn these pants for years and love them so much.

Playful Pink I love this outfit because it's super comfortable and casual for spring and summer, but can be made into a winter look by pairing it with a long coat. Since the jumpsuit is a softer pink, I went bold with a hot pink jacket and rose gold shoes.

Playful Pink: CrewCuts coat (past season), vintage jumpsuit, Rollie shoes.

Feeling Fancy — Here's a great outfit that is dressy and super feminine. Since the last two outfits have had major pops of hot pink, this one just has a small pop of bright pink in the shoes. I also paired the soft rose dress with a fun colorful scarf for an extra dose of color and pink to tie back to the brightness in the heels.

Feeling Fancy: Machete earrings, vintage scarf, Damaris Bailey dress, Loeffler Randall shoes.

Glitzy Pink — This sweater is SUPER cozy. It's a bold and fun pop of pink, so I added lots of gold and peachy-pink metallic to the rest of the ensemble. It's the perfect outfit to wear to a party especially when it's a little chilly outside.

Here are a few reasons why I love shopping vintage...
