I haven’t been a pink girl in many, many years, but lately I’ve really been getting into it. When the whole ‘millennial’ pink trend popped up, I liked it, but I really wasn’t a huge fan like so so many people were. When I started seeing a few bright pink knits though, I was surprised by how much I loved it. They didn’t really pop up in shops near me for a while but I found this one and snatched it up straight away.
I got this one from Cotton On, and honestly the quality is not great, it’s quite thin and a bit itchy especially around my neck, but I don’t mind that much. I bought another jumper at the same time from Cotton On which just feels so much nicer than this one, it’s a totally different style of jumper, but I’m pretty sure they were the same price, and if they had this colour in that style I definitely would’ve bought that over this one. But the colour is soooo nice. I actually think it’s surprisingly easy to wear, and even if you just tuck it into a pair of jeans, I think it looks really cool.
The jacket is brand new from Topshop. I don’t own any longer coats apart from this one because I feel like they make me look really grown up and formal, but I think because this one is such a fun pink, it makes it look a bit younger. I’m about 5’11, maybe taller I’m not 100% sure, and the length cuts just around my knees so on a lot of people I’m sure this would be quite a bit longer. I’m a massive sucker for anything checked, especially coats, so when I saw this I fell in love. I usually size up in jackets a couple of sizes but I only got a 10 in this, but even though it’s a bit more of a tight fit than I usually go for in my coats, I think it looks like it fits nicely.
It’s no surprise that I’ve got on my vintage Versace jeans and my Kmart boots again, I’ve just been putting these on with everything because it’s just a really safe bet and I’m yet to find something this combo wouldn’t look good with. The dark blue wash of the denim looks really good with the pink tones too. I love clashing pieces of the same colour but in different shades together, and I think because there are so many shades of pink throughout so many clothing options now it’s really easy to do, and it’s nice to brighten up sad and cold (almost) winter days with some bright clothes.
