I must say, apart from black, I love wearing shades of pink. I always seem to find myself reaching toward anything coral (orange-pink) or pale pink. I think it's because these colors look great on all skin tones. The other day while sale shopping at Urban Outfitters (usually that is the only section I visit, it's just too painful to look at all the other pretty things I can not afford), I found this fabulous chiffon blazer/kimono piece. In such a beautiful shade of pale pink, finding the last one in my size on the rack gave me that excited feeling in the pit of my stomach.
I had been seeing kimonos on several blogs and magazines. I have been desperately wanting one for sometime now, however, I couldn't really find one at the right price. When I saw this I had to have it. It is kimono-like, but a bit more interesting because of the lapels. Moreover, I really feel like this piece is so beautiful and versatile. I am wearing it with shorts here, but think it would be great at night over a cocktail dress or paired with jeans and boots.
P.S. I found these socks at Forever 21 and I just love pairing them with heels or oxfords. They were only $3!
Just in case you, too, have been searching for great kimonos recently I did a bit of research for you and found some really pretty ones at great prices. I actually might splurge on the white one...
