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.
What do you guys think? Such a thing as too much of one color? What about summer scarves?
I’d love to hear your thoughts! Thank you for visiting!!
