I've mentioned it before... That there was a time when I liked pink a little too much. I thought that my pink hooded jacket needed the companionship of my pink sneakers and my giant pink handbag. I was also walking on the wildside back then, with some auburn streaks in my hair... streaks that often looked pink to match everything else I had going on. It was the chameleon affect... I remember that exact outfit and even better, I remember feeling pretty. freaking. cool. wearing it. I wish I could tell you my pink phase was when I was 13 years old but the truth is, it was third year university.
I can only hope I've learned some style lessons since then. At the very least, I've discovered that all a sweet pink skirt needs is a little neon and a lot of necklaces... This skirt in particular also requires some twirling action because what's the fun of a full skirt, if you can't catch some air? And would you believe it, even without the matching purse, shoes and hair, I still felt pretty. freaking. cool.

I think you are pretty freaking cool- but it's those necklaces I am coveting.

You're so pretty, and Merl captured the skirt perfectly!

If you and Merl lived in the same town, it might explode from coolness. Or kittens.

The pink skirt is so pretty and you add just the right amount of edginess with the cool necklaces and freaky neon. Success: pretty, freaking cool.

I definitely went through a pink phase, particularly in high school, when everything I owned match...perfectly. I'm glad we both have graduated to more tasteful levels of pink. This look is particularly great. I LOVE the way the wind picks your skirt up in the second picture!

myedit said...

Maura- I wish I got a new camera... It's something I do hope to do soon but these pictures used Merl's talent and her camera... Painfully obvious how much better they are...
Katherine-Yup, these pictures were in Texas at the University:)
Anon- I can't find a link for the bag... nothing even really similar from Roots right now. I think the colour way was just a trial and it never even showed up online...:( sorry...

That skirt is gorgeous. Lovely shape and lovely colour. And you're so right, not twirling in a full-skirt is just weird.
