{Outfit Inspiration} Magenta & Shell Pink

I am definitely very Elle Woods in regards to pink. I love it. Every variation of pink really…fuchsia, shell pink, dark pink, flamingo, coral, bubble gum, even Pepto Bismol (although, I’d use that pretty sparingly!) Most of my favorite flowers are shades of pink…peonies, roses, cherry blossoms, bougainvillea.

I’ve already demonstrated my knee-jerk reaction to pink by painting my coat closet a vibrant shade of it.

I recently came across these glamorous pictures from an old issue of In Style magazine:

Not a lot of husbands would give the okay to decorate completely in this scheme, but it is lovely to look at.

The touches of gold and the deep magenta shades definitely up the glam-factor and help ease the sweetness.

I tried something similar in my outfit. I paired a deeper pink with a shell pink, and used a metallic shoe to make it more ‘ladies that lunch’ and less ‘preschool playground.’

The pearls are to remind myself I’m a grown-up too.

Hey, maybe Miranda and I could hang out….perhaps have lunch with her new husband!?! (Orlando Bloom, duh)

She’s pretty much rocking the pink…of course she’s got the whole ‘super model’ thing going for her. And some pretty amazing shoes that surely aren’t sold at Target! What is your relationship with pink?
