peppy in pink

20130730-170339.jpg

Finally! I pulled out my white pants this summer! …and of course, I managed to spill pink lemonade on them the same day. These things always happen on a white pants day, right? But fear not, a bit of bleach later, and the pants are good to go again! Anyway, aside from that minor incident, I loved wearing my white pants with all pink accessories.

My inspiration for this peppy in pink outfit were these hot pink sandals I found at Gap for $8.

I added a silk scarf that my girlfriend got me while on a trip to India. It is so lightweight and delicate- I love it!

The scarf matched my top from Banana Republic perfectly!

Because the top is sleeveless, I wore a long cream cardigan on top, which helped keep the look work appropriate, but also from looking too pink…if there is such a thing.

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I suppose that there is such a thing as too much pink in one outfit. The way I kept this look from getting too out of control pink was by wearing a long cream cardigan with the white pants. I think long cardigans in cream/white and black are essential for all seasons. I wear this particular cardigan year round, especially with bright colors. Because we cannot wear sleeveless tops at work, black and cream cardigans are my faithful standbys. I even keep two at work!

2) We have had a “cold” streak here in Chicago this summer, so I pulled out a few of my lightweight scarves to change up some of my outfits. I think summer scarves are a great way to accessorize some of your summer staples in a new way. While it does sound like a misnomer, summer scarves do exist! I tend to think of them as sheer, silk, and/or lightweight.

Here’s a good article about different versions of the summer scarf.

What do you guys think? Such a thing as too much of one color? What about summer scarves?

    • I totally was! I rarely spill but, of course, when I was in white pants I spilled everywhere. I since bleached them and they are in good shape! Thank you for visiting- and I agree, you have to wear what you love! Xo

  1. Those sandals are gorgeous and that price!!! I am sure you will get a lot of use of them for the remaining of the summer. And scarves from India are the best what a nice friend.

  2. Love the whole outfit! But here in Spain summer scarfs, at least for me, its too hot, sometimes even accessories are too much! 😊I will have to wait for autumm to wear a scarf! 😉

  3. 100% agree – scarves are everything!!! Yours is beautiful and that it was a gift is even more special. Love your balance of hot pink with cream and white. Light, breezy and cheerful!
