Brink of Pink

Even though it’s not yet August, NYC will be awash in head-to-toe black before we know it. So for as long as I can, I’m going to embrace as much color as I can. I’ll make my looks more transitional with long sleeves instead of short or sleeveless and pants instead of shorts. And because there will be still some scorching days ahead, I’m definitely going to keep the pedicures up. And break out every pair of my toe-baring shoes and sandals, before they’re packed away until Summer comes again. Or a tropical Winter vacay! 
So obviously I’m really thinking pink with this look. And loving it. How killer are the bell sleeves on this lace top! They are so feminine and fun. I also feel the fitted and flared silhouette is flattering to so many body types, not just mine. And I’ve already got another look planned for this pink lace top where I’ll pair it with some jeans and booties. Full disclosure, this top was a Rent the Runway favorite that I ended up buying at a super great price.
The pants are an updated nod to preppy pink-and-green chic. While they were a steal, they’re still beautifully tailored. Again, how cute will these look paired with white leather booties and a chunky sweater.
For accessories, I kept it super simple with these metallic pink slides that say it all (Rosé All Day!), and a bouquet of gorgeous pink roses from my favorite JC florist. (Not seen…my absolute favorite bra that is now a deal @ the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Link below!!)
It would seem that sometimes you do have to stop and smell the flowers. Right?

Top: (Parker x Rent The Runway) Super pretty and on-sale options here and here.

Bra: (Natori Feathers, best price now @ the #NSale! Stock up!! I am!!!)

Pants: (H&M, sold out) similar here and here.

Sandals:( Schutz, on sale!) even more affordable here and here.

Flowers: Casa Mona, the sweetest flower/home decor/gift shop in Jersey City! Their flowers last for days…and days!!
