Friday´s Fancies #34: Red & Pink


Until recently, colors were one of the biggest style challenges to me. I used to go all-black all the time, or I would throw in something grey to "spice" things up a little. Some say that all-black outfits are very stylish and fashionable, but when I look at my pictures from a few years ago, I mostly find them sad and without a spark. I don´t really know what changed my mind (maybe I was just feeling downrigh depressed by my fashion choices), but now my closet is really colorful and when I´m looking for a black top or a sweater to pair with my hot pink skirt, I have the hardest time finding one. Colorblocking is not an enemy anymore, and that´s why I fell head over heels for this week´s Friday´s Fancies. I can´t imagine more stylish, colorful and optimistic combo than red and pink, for these are hands down my favorite two colors ever!



What about you? Do you have a love-hate relationship with color, or does your closet feels like a rainbow?

  2. Ivana! I love all your colorful and cheery outfits! I used to wear a lot of black white and grey... until I reorganized my closet. I moved all of the colors to the side that is easiest to access.... therefore, I used pick a colored option first and then add neutrals! Works pretty well for me.
