Sunday Style: Pretty in Pink
The movie Pretty in Pink was released in 1986 but guess who didn’t see it until 2016? If you guessed me, you’re right! We weren’t allowed to watch these types of movies growing up and I finally one day bought the movie at Target and made it my mission to sit and enjoy it.
Mission accomplished! I loved the movie and I loved the premise of it- not just the high school romance, but also the making of your own clothes! I did the same thing in high school but mostly followed patterns and didn’t do a lot of creative work like Andie did.
Fast forward to 2018 and pink is actually one of my very favorite colors! I loved this suit as soon as I laid eyes on it and knew it needed to be in my closet! My son and I went to Deep Ellum in Dallas to find a couple of colorful walls to use as backdrops. I love the results!
I paired a black tank under the pink jacket just to make the color pop- you could do a top or blouse under it or wear it with a pretty bra. Any way you wear it, you’ll be a winner! I also just did silver booties since the suit itself is very colorful.
By the way, did you see the red piping on the suit as well? Red and pink is one of my very favorite combos! I also had this clutch from Studio DIY that I used in a couple of the shots since it’s Christmas time and it’s a present- so duh?!
Enjoy these pics of this look- we only took a few but I love the results!
Thanks for reading and following along with me!
