in the pink

Maybe it’s because it’s spring, but I’ve been gravitating towards a lot of pastel pinks lately. Pastel pink flowers, pastel pink polish, pastel pink fashion spreads… I could overdose on the sickly sweetness of it all. I guess that’s why ELLE Australia suggests mixing your springtime pastels with “a hit of black”. I’m not usually one for mixing pink with black, especially hot pinks because I think the combination can border on tacky, but I get where they’re coming from in regards to pastels. Lately I’ve been toting around this two-tone Sportsgirl coin purse, wearing O.P.I.’s ‘Kiss on the Chic’ nail polish and applying Jurlique’s Rose Love Balm on dry patches of skin. Also, peonies, just because.

    Okay I'm buying Elle tomorrow when I get a chance. I've been toying with the idea of picking up a pale blush crop top, and pairing it with black lace and black shorts – so it's funny that you mention it. It's a surprisingly nice combination!

    PS. GORGEOUS photos Soph. I just want to tumblr them all.

      This issue is so good. I'm kicking myself for not buying the first one. Nearly every page is like my thoughts put down on paper. The crop top combo sounds lovely. x

    These photos are so gorgeous! It's fall where I live but I'm starting to miss it because of how cute the pastel pink items I'm seeing in this post, haha.
