Pucker Up

It’s hard to believe that we’re already about 1/4 of the way into February, but I have a feeling the rest of the month is going to fly by even faster. New York Fashion Week officially begins today and F/W 2014 looks have already started walking down the runways! [Sorry in advance to my friends & family… Talk to you in a few weeks.] The Olympic games in Sochi also start today and before you know it, February 14th will be here, too. Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day, Galentines’ Day (I’ve got a hot date with Hallie & Ashley), or spending some QT with yourself, it’s always more fun to be a little bit festive, no?

When I spotted this lipstick print sweater, I knew it would pair perfectly with my Kate Spade skirt. You know what they say, “Too much of a good thing is… even better.” Do they say that? Who knows, but I do. When I got home and realized that my J.Crew hot pink pumps couldn’t actually match the sweater or skirt more if they tried, it was dubbed a meant to be situation.

To make my look even more literal, I went with punchy pink jewelry from Charming Charlie. A fabulous pair of two-tone earrings, a gorgeous pave link necklace that picks up the pink so well, a set of bracelets that will be the perfect pop of color in my neutral wrist stacks, and these adorable L-O-V-E rings! The best part about each piece? The price.

    I think you look great! Wearing pink, with different prints on different pieces of clothing and accessories can be difficult to pull of, but you do it easily.

    I have a great new blog for inspiration for fashion, and style. I just wrote a post all about the pink trend, and lot’s of outfit inspiration for Valentine’s Day. Come check it out, you’ll love it.
