Style: Pink. Always.

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

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 , 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,
    On sale, so go grab ’em quick!

  2. Layer Cake Glasses,
    Perhaps the cutest glasses ever.

  3. Merino Tippi Sweater,
    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,
    Pale pink wool, with matching pink leather details.

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

  6. Hamilton Heights Sloan,
    Ladylike pretty.

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

  8. Moto X,
    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.

    Okay, that phone is kind of cool! I have an Android, and while it’s not a big deal, I always wish it could look prettier. Love your coat!

    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.

    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.

    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.
