Through The Rose-Coloured Glasses...

"Seeing life through pink glasses" is a pretty outdated term relating to those who are overly enthusiastic about life and prefer to see the best in everything. As outdated as the term might be, it couldn't have been more current for me, a person who has walked through life as a hard-on pessimist, only to recently change my mindset completely and finally put on those pink glasses, metaphorically speaking of course...

Without getting too personal or typing up a book chapter instead of a blog post, I'll say one thing only - your mindset can, (does!) change your luck, your wellbeing and eventually even your life. And while most of us could do with adding a little bit of "pink" to our attitudes, let's talk for now about how we can add it to our wardrobes instead. 

I think by now, it is pretty obvious that I love dusty pink. I do try not to over-indulge but sometimes I am feeling particularly in the mood for it, just like I did when putting this outfit together. When I received these incredible trainers from Solewish, I knew that I couldn't just chuck them on and go. They were meant for something more special, an outfit that would compliment them to the maximum.  As subtle as the shade of the pink is on those trainers, it still stands out a lot when worn next to white, hence my choice of those wide-leg culottes (definitely more like trousers on me) from Missguided.  

Satin bomber in the matching shade of pink is the perfect jacket for this and let's not forget the accessories...also in pink, of course! I've always said this colour is the perfect spring/summer shade and can help achieve any sorts of looks, from girly to edgy, as long as you know what to put it together with. If you are a pink newbie, I recommend trying it with white and start with one item at a time, for example maybe just the shoes for now, or a scarf, or whatever else you will be comfortable with. So whether it's the metaphoric "pink glasses" of positivity that you wish to try on, or  fluffy pom-pom trainers, just go ahead and add this magical colour to your life and watch things take a turn for the better.
