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.
Top: Banana Republic (approx $20 marked down from approx $70)
Pants: Banana Republic; my sister gave them to me!
Cardigan: Urban Outfitters ($20 marked down from approx $60)
Shoes: Gap ($8 marked down from $40)
Scarf: gift from a friend from India
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.

Thanks, Sylvie! You’ve got so many fabulous looks, glad you like mine as well 🙂
You were struck by the “I’m wearing white- spill on me” curse! I love summer scarves and I don’t believe you can wear too much of one color. If you love it, rock it! You are truly Pretty in Pink!
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
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.
I agree, especially with color blocking and matching being so popular right now, I can pair then with anything! And yes! She picked a great one for me- clearly she knows me well 🙂 thanks for visiting!

Thanks, Sarah! You guys knows I love my bright colors!! Xo from Chicago
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! 😉
Yes! I remember summers being very warm there, so I could see how scarves may not be an option! Waiting for fall makes them that much more exciting, right? Thanks for commenting!!
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!
It felt really breezy, even though there were a lot of layers! It was definitely cheerful for a rainy day!
