{Outfit Inspiration} Pink & Purple

Pink and Purple are my daughter’s favorite colors…as I’m sure they are most little girls. You’ve probably seen plenty of tween rooms in this scheme.

But to keep it more appropriate to the “mature” demographic, I think it’s essential to use them in their most vibrant shades when combining. This one is more on the blue side than purple, but definitely loses the sweet factor.

No trace of pastel in these doors:


This room is more subdued, but still saturated with deep purple and pink:

So when I created an outfit in these colors, I decided to follow the same advice and pair the punchiest pink and purple items in my closet.


This outfit is so bright, even I had to wear shades! I kept the accessories to a minimum and went with nude shoes since the outfit was visually stimulating enough. What do you think, too much or just right?

Outfit deets: ruffly top – newport news (there is an occasional gem on their site, but beware, you’ll get bi-weekly catalogs for the rest of your life if you place an order!); skirt – jcrew; bow belt – old navy; nude peep toes – bcbg girls
