I Believe in Pink Because Happy Girls Are The Prettiest Girls2:00 PM
I'm so excited because today's post is part of a blog collective that I recently joined called Ahead of The Curve. Basically, it's a group of the most fabulous plus size women I have ever met and every month, we each blog about that month's chosen fashion topic and our interpretation of it. The topic for this month is Pretty in Pink.
This made me so psyched because I love pink and instantly thought of Audrey Hepburn. As many of you know, I am a HUGE Audrey fan. And one of my favorite quotes from her mentions the color pink:
“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
So imagine my surprise when I looked in my closet for pink items and didn't find many. I couldn't believe it. And also, it's my birthday weekend with the actual day being TODAY (YAY) and I was searching for the perfect outfit to wear today. I thought it would be an awesome idea to use my birthday outfit for this post.
I recently bought a pink and white chevron stripe maxi dress from Walmart via a friend on Facebook. Perfect, dress...check! But I needed more to finish the outfit. And then I noticed...the jacket. I bought this hot pink cropped denim jacket at Lane Bryant last summer on clearance and surprisingly, it has become a staple in my wardrobe. Who would have thunk it? At first, when I bought it, I didn't know what I would wear it with because I thought it was an odd color to pair with different outfits. I was so wrong. Honestly, I almost didn't buy it out of fear that I would look ridiculous. There goes that fear again. But I brushed it off and bought it. I wore it last year for a birthday lunch (see pic below) so I thought it would be fitting to wear it again this year. Perfect match...jacket, check!
