Holiday Pink

Pink isn’t really a color I personally think of when planning holiday outfits.  In fact, pink is one of those colors that I don’t really gravitate towards, well, ever.  (Could the last time I wore pink be when I was pregnant with Harry?! Ha) It’s become a huge trend over the past decade, especially on the internet, with the emergence of “millenial pink.”  I like the color fine but have always gravitated towards neutrals and more androgynous colors.  My mind changed when I saw this Vince skirt.  I had my eye on a caramel color but it kept selling out and I couldn’t snag one.  I saw this muted rose and though, hmm, that’s neutral enough for me.  I envisioned myself pairing it with a light cream sweater or even a charcoal grey.  Then I saw this feminine, pink, pointelle sweater by Joie and knew it was a match made in heaven. 

I’ve already worn this outfit to a holiday party!  Both the skirt and sweater were splurges but because I live in Chicago, where winter lasts through March or April, I knew that these muted pinks would be worn well through the spring.  I’ve mentioned before that before I purchase something, I force myself to imagine wearing it with items already in my closet.  With this sweater, I can easily pair it with a leopard skirt, blue jeans, white jeans, even faded grey jeans!  The skirt has a season-less hue; it can be worn with any color tank or tee in the summer and most neutral sweaters in the winter.

I love finding a good ‘look for less’ as well so in case you want to recreate this outfit with more inexpensive options, I’ve already done the leg work for you:
