Today's Everyday Fashion: Pink and Red






































If you try one crazy color combo this summer, I vote for red and pink! I am loving it so much and have been seeing it everywhere (this dress at H&M is the same color as my shirt and skirt). I always say "never listen to fashion rules" and this is case in point. Just a few years ago wearing red and pink together would have made people gag but now it is tres chic! Will you try wearing pink and red together?

  1. It was great meeting you! I had so much fun. :-) Oh, and I noticed Express is rocking the red/pink color block combo in dresses now too. They had a fun bright blue/green combo as well.

  3. It was great meeting you last night!!

    That color combo looks great on you. I didn't even notice that the skirt you were wearing was scalloped at the bottom -- so cute.

  9. I was one of the first to GAG at someone wearing pink+red - now I love it and cannot wait to find the right pieces and wear them together. Well done, yours turned perfect.

  10. That's such a cute look, you're always so creative in putting things together! Since I've started following your blog, I feel like I've definitely been more inspired to try pairing things from my closet that I wouldn't normally put together, so thanks for the inspiration! Also, I saw that both you and PB Fingers were at the event you went to last night, I love both of your blogs!! Have a great weeekend! :)

  11. I really like this color combo! I am going to be in a wedding next week that has the color scheme of watermelon pink and orange (think tulips..). My dress is pink, any suggestion of a color for my nails? Do you typically stick to a neutral nail when you're wearing louder colors like this?

    Kara, I don't think I have had nail polish on my nails since I was 5 years old haha! Don't know why, but I never wear it. I love those wedding colors though!!

  17. I am a new reader and I love your blog!  Great outfit.  Whenever I think of pink and red, I think of Rizzo's outfit at the end of Grease.  I like this outfit much better :)

  18. I'm with you on this one along with pink and coral.  It's a little bit more subtle than pink and red.  My most recent combination was blue and yellow and it wasn't as shocking as I previously thought.  Goes to show that clothes are just clothes, if we don't like it, take it off.  Now haircuts on the other hand, that's a lot scarier :)
