Totally Pinked Out

Thursday, November 12, 2009
I'm in the process of creating my Christmas list. I never really shop for clothes online. I prefer the consignment or thrift store so it's weird to think of things I want instead of going to these stores myself and looking for a little treasure for a lot less! What is on everyone else's list? I think I may need some help/ideas...

Anyway, how awesome is this jacket?!? I tried it on once but it was too pink for me and put it back. Then when I went back to the store and it was just sitting there....looking at me....no, begging me to take it home with me. And so I did. I'm so glad!! It stands out in my closet against all the neutral and boring colors. Like the last outfit and this one, when I get a new bold piece, I first like to play with a neutral base and see how it feels from there.

  3. Goodness! I'm definitely trying desperately to not have necklace envy. That is too cute!

    Love your whole look, including that deliciously pink jacket. You always look adorable/cute/lovely. :)

  4. I like that if someone happened to see your feet first, and then the eye moved upwards they'd be thinking "ok, normal black shoes, trendier grey jeans," and then BAM a pink jacket shakes them to the core.

    If you couldn't tell from that little story, I love the pink. And your necklace.

  16. I love the pink jacket. Lately I've been more into color, but I still love my go-to neutrals. That jacket would be nice in black or brown, but pink is infinitely more fun! The whole outfit looks easy to wear but really put together.

  19. my favorite item off my christmas list is a pair of gold sequin TOMS! i'm crossing my fingers for those!

    i love your pink jacket paired with the grey pant. lovely!

  20. this is really pretty! i have so much trouble wearing pink and i love the way you've paired it with the white and gray. you look fabulous, as always.

  21. The pink is awesome, and the outfit you created looks great. I always want to pair everything with a white t-shirt and dark trouser jeans, but that's because I need to open my mind to other possibilities.

    So, I know I've done a lot of posting on my Christmas list on my own blog recently, but here's a quick rundown of things I have on it: boots (obvi), embellished tees on sale at J. Crew, something that smells nice (which just means perfume -- I don't like the word perfume because it sounds like a word my grandma would use, and I don't want to smell like my grandma), anything from my Etsy favorites, and a perfect new bag. Basically, I put on things that I would love to have but wouldn't really buy for myself. Hope that helps!

  29. That's a good pink, unlike most shades. (I like bold pinks every once in a while, hate really light & pastel-y ones.) I really like it with the grey pants.

  30. Cute, and I really like the necklace...

  31. What an amazing color! Love how it works with your hair color and of course the neutral grey and white with which you paired it.

  34. I got a pink blazer-type jacket on clearance at Express about five months ago and just barely broke it out and wore it twice in the last 10 days! It really does feel nice to wear something a little out of your element from time to time. In fact, today I'm wearing a white shirt with a pretty yellow scarf and I thought to myself this morning, 'I need to have Elaine show me how she wears hers.' Funny after a year living in France that I never mastered the scarf tying. Oh well. So on my Christmas wish list is you helping me look good with a part-of-the-outfit scarf! :)

  36. I have recently added bright pink to my normally more subdued wardrobe too and I am starting to really love it. You look great here: I think simplicity is the key when wearing a bright pop of color- and you mastered it here! - Natalya of Wear Necessities

  37. Love that jacket! And come to think of it, bold colours on you - they always look great on you :)
    Happy weekend, Elaine!

  38. I just love it! It would be a little "kate spade" to put it with a black tulip skirt too! So bold and fun! Good for you for buying it, I would have been scared off!

    ReplyDelete
  39. oh gosh, i haven't even thought about creating a christmas list... however, something cute and pink like your jacket would be much appreciated!

    xo.

  45. I want the entire look!

    That pink looks great on you, but for me, I prefer a salmony pink

  46. I love this jacket! I have a pink jacket that I haven't worn, and you have inspired me to actually wear it soon. I love neutrals with a bold item, it keeps it less flashy, which is always a good thing :)

  47. Love it, the pink and gray together looks great on you. I'm stealing this look tomorrow.

  48. I love how the jacket and necklace compliment each other and their contrast with the grey!
