I definitely have favorite colors, and they translate to what I wear. I wear a lot of blues and greens – really rich colors – but I don’t tend to wear a lot of pink. Maybe it’s because growing up, I had a pink and purple Barbie wheelchair, and since I was always surrounded by pink, maybe now I’ve gone in the opposite direction. Whatever the reason, it’s not one of my go-to colors, and I actually only have one or two pink things in my closet.
I got this pink scarf as a Christmas gift, and I wasn’t sure what I thought of it at first. But I tried it out and decided that it’s just the right about of pink for me. I like that it adds just a splash without being over-the-top. Of course, since I didn’t want to stray too far out of my fashion comfort zone, I kept it simple and paired it with an otherwise all black look. I think it keeps it from looking too young and overly girly, which is not my style.
I think this could also make a perfect Valentine’s Day look, if you want to celebrate the day in style without wearing something overly pink. The scarf adds just a subtle nod to Valentine’s Day, while still being wearable any other day of the year, too. You can click through my scarf and a few other pink options below.
