So true story - my alias during high school was "Pinky" - no, not because of any intense infatuation with the color, but because I played competitive tennis and would get really pink in the face from being out in the sun constantly. Ironically, I have grown to love every shade of pink - it's flirty, feminine and fun - what more could a girl ask for?!
This pretty little pink dress from H&M got me super excited - not only is it Spring/Summer perfection - it was on sale for a steal at $29.99. Nevermind that my size was sold out, I wasn't about to leave it, so I took the next size up and viola - it works!
The great thing about this silhouette is that it's not cut to hug the body, so wearing it a little loose doesn't look ill-fitting or sloppy. It would be interesting to see what my actual size fits like but I feel so easy, breezy, beautiful in this dress that it really doesn't matter :)
As a designer, I've always had a keen focus on back details - I find an open back one of the most alluring cut on a woman. These criss-cross straps form a delicate pattern that is soft and sensual.
I paired the dress with a pop of red for a color contrast - wearing my all-time favorite pair of Christian Louboutin pumps. A nude Kate Spade tote was then the perfect neutral, as it did not detract from the color block pairing.
Marble oversized Versace sunglasses added an eclectic element to the look, and minimal jewelry - a pair of diamond studs and a diamond ring - kept the dress the focal point.
Spring calls for a light coats, and I snatched this H&M at the sale for $19.99 (down from $69.99) - I was shocked too! The fresh cream color is a great neutral for springs' bright colors and floral prints, the cut is structured and form flattering, and the aztec belt adds definition to the waist and an interesting detail.
