Style: Pink. Always.

Brought to you by Motorola Moto X: Thousands of combinations. Design yours.

I always return to pink.

I wrote, a couple of weeks ago, about needing a new winter coat. I did consider tailoring my old coat so that it would fit again, but the proportion of the pockets and lapels would look wrong on me now. So I ordered the pink coat I’d featured and even though it’s not my usual favorite shape, I love it! I suspect the color may be clouding my vision — my rose-colored vision — but I’m fine with that.

Motorola has just come out with the Moto X, which can be customized in 2000+ ways to match your unique style. So what color did I choose to inspire me as I put together a style post? If you didn’t shout PINK!, you must be new here. Hello!

Style: Blushing Pink

  1. Pink/Gold Triangle Earrings, Hive & Honey
    On sale, so go grab ’em quick!

  2. Layer Cake Glasses, Rivet & Sway
    Perhaps the cutest glasses ever.

  3. Merino Tippi Sweater, J. Crew
    This is the sweater style I wore when I interviewed Martha Stewart, and I shall henceforth call it The Martha Sweater.

  4. Samira Wool Calf Hair Coat, Club Monaco
    Pale pink wool, with matching pink leather details.

  5. Ultra Skinny Pants, Gap
    These pants are the best! I have them in black, and in this bright red.

  6. Hamilton Heights Sloan, Kate Spade
    Ladylike pretty.

  7. Reese Brogues, Anthropologie
    I got very excited when I saw these, which is kind of a silly thing to say about shoes.

  8. Moto X, Motorola
    The perfect pink, with red for some kapow.

Someone noted that I seem to be wearing pants a lot more lately, which is true. I still rock a skirt or a dress pretty often, but now instead of only breaking out the pants a handful of times per year, it’s a more even mix. Pink though, is still ever-present in my wardrobe. Do you have a color that you always return to like that?

    Uh, I let out an audible excited “ohh” when I saw the shoes. You’re not alone.

    I think we might be total style opposites. I could go days without wearing anything but black and grey! I love all of your bright and feminine choices but for some reason when I shop I never buy anything colorful.

      And I rarely buy black and grey. It washes me out.

    Well you certainly deserve a new coat! The most important pieces of clothing a girl can own is her coat and her bathrobe. They ought to be nice. The colors I always choose? Black, dark brown, navy, and aqua. Not too exciting.

      I never thought of a bathrobe on par with an overcoat, but I like that thinking.

    So happy to hear that you were able to find a new coat! It’s a pretty choice, too. Though it’s such a pale shade of pink, it almost looks white, online!

    Did you have an opportunity to see how pink it truly is, in-person, before purchasing it? Or, did you take a leap of faith; and just order it online?



    Ps. I know you’re a huge Rifle Paper fan – as am I. And, this past weekend, I actually had a chance to visit her studio. (It’s gorgeous!) Feel free to peruse some of what I shared, from my experience.

      It is very pale. I ordered, making sure that I could easily return it for a full refund if needed. And how awesome to be able to visit the Rifle Paper Co. shop! I love love love Anna Bond’s style.

    I ALWAYS go back to shades of turquoise or aqua blue for both fashion and home. If it works, then work it!
    Also, I just read your post about meeting Martha – how LOVELY!

    I am constantly drawn to navy and gray. I definitely have to limit myself when shopping!

    I find I’m seasonal in the colors I wear — darker for late fall/winter and brights for spring/summer.
    For my home, my favorite is turquoise! But, I bought a gorgeous pink coat a couple years ago from Banana Republic for an awesome sale price. Fortunately/unfortunately, I lost weight and had to give it away. Lucky friend. I’m loving the pink Kate Spade purse you show.

    i think that pink is way overrated
    unless its very light pink, its just makes you look older ;)

    Pink is the best – bought myself some bright pink shoes from Boden for the fall, and they are the best thing I have in my closet!

    all cute. I have to say my go to color is black – I know, I know…. I am one of those people. I just feel so comfortable in it and it can easily be transitioned throughout the seasons – it is a color that you can always find in a store.

    Back around 1984 while in college, I saved for weeks to purchase a pale pink wool coat from The Limited that has a peter pan collar. I ADORED that coat. When I got married, my husband thought it was pink overload :( and I put it away and forgot about it, and now I’m sure it doesn’t fit but I do still have it stowed in the hope chest. I’m so happy that the 80s are back in style, leggings, pink coats, etc. — michele

    Ummm, how did I miss this post? Love the ensemble. I love those glasses, I might need the black licorice ones. They’re fab and maybe a little more conservative. I always get nervous about coloured frames. I’m such a wimp!

    What do you wear with the red pants? I have a pair in a similar shade and I can’t decide how to style them.
