{Outfit Inspiration} Pink & Navy

Pinks and blues are clearly favorites around here…since our Pool Bathroom is navy and hot pink, Babygirl’s Room is aqua and radish pink, and the Living Room plans call for navy and pale pink. So I guess it’s only natural for me to grab a navy cardigan when making this pink strapless dress work appropriate.


This was my first attempt at the top knot…the tangle of pearls is to distract you from my dark roots. Did it work? I’m feeling very ladies-who-lunch in this get-up…in fact, I kept my pinkie out all day.


I like to add a touch of masculinity to prissy outfits, and the oversized watch does the trick.



Bright colors, pockets, stripes, oversized jewels, and messy hair….all my favorites in an outfit! What are your favorite elements in an outfit? Are you a fan of pink and navy?

  3. I LOVE THIS COMBO! I have a navy dress that I wear hot pink shoes with and I love it. I also love pale pink with navy like your dress and cardigan. It is so classic and preppy. It will never seem trendy or go out of style. Bravo!

  13. I love pink and navy together! Preppy perfection. And, they're not roots – it's ombré. At least that's what I'm calling mine 😉

  22. Coral and navy are one of my favorite color combos! Most of the outfits on my blog have those elements involved, and this is beautiful! So classic, and that oversized watch does so well with the look!
