It's kind of odd.....Pink is my favorite color (light pink that is), yet I hardly ever wear pink. Looking in my closet I maybe only have a total of ten pieces that are actually all pink. You would think I would have my favorite color in pieces I can actually wear, but I guess when it comes to fashion I like to think outside of the box?
While I might not wear pink very often, it has been my favorite color ever since I can remember. Obviously many girls say pink is their favorite color, but I think besides being a color I gravitate towards it is one that perfectly captures my personality.
There is a fun question/exercise that a friend of mine shared with me years ago.....it went something along the lines of "What is your favorite color and why? How does it make you feel, etc." Then she went on to ask the same questions only about my favorite "animal" and my favorite "natural disaster." She learned about these questions in her psychology class and apparently the COLOR represents your personality and who you are. The ANIMAL represents the type of person you will marry and the NATURAL DISASTER represents your view of God. To this day those questions have always intrigued me, especially because they make since and are accurate to what they represent in my life and future!
I said that PINK (specifically pale pink) was my favorite color because it is simple, subtle, sweet, classic, and ladylike. When I look at my view of pink in regards to who I am and the color describing me, I do believe that pink encompasses who I am as a person and my personality. It reminds me of being a little girl, twirling around in princess dresses and I think it instills just a hint of childlike magic back into my "grown up" life, reminding me never to stop dreaming, to embrace who I am fully no matter what people think, and to never stop being someone who likes anything classic and ladylike:)
This pink polka dot skirt is one from my Etsy shop and I love the color and the classic polka dots! I like to name my creations like Modcloth names all of their pieces, so this particular skirt is called "You're Making Me Blush". I don't wear this skirt nearly as much as I should, but after getting this darling white ruffle blouse from SHEIN I knew they would be the perfect pairing!
The day I went to take these pictures I had a vision of a pink southern belle and I have to say these might be my FAVORITE pictures/photo shoot in awhile.....although that could just be due to this porch because I said the same thing last summer around this time in this post:) To keep with the whole "southern belle" theme I made sure to grab my giant straw bag + a scarf + peonies (the same from this post) as I ran out the door. All in all I am absolutely IN LOVE with this look and definitely think I should start wearing more pink:)

What is your favorite color?
Do you  wear it a lot?

  4. I knew you made that skirt the second I saw it! It's completely adorable! And the frilly shirt is just perfect for it. Pale pink is my ultimate favorite color too! :)
