Pink on Pink

I just got this new pink knit moto jacket. I've been looking for a light pink jacket all year - ever since Pantone announced that it was the color of the year along with light blue.  I've tried on several, but nothing was a keeper until I found this one.  It's knit, so it is comfy like a cardigan.  The crop fit usually works well on my frame, and it comes in petites so it's not too long in the sleeves for me.  I also like how the moto detailing keeps this soft color from looking too sweet.  I wore a blouse under the jacket in a dustier pink, that has an attached tie.  I tried it on first with a blouse in a more perfect match, but again I thought it was too sweet.  I thought this darker pink helped ground the outfit and looked a more professional.

I paired it with a navy skirt, which is a wardrobe staple for me.  I wear my all the time.  It pairs so nicely with so many colors, and always looks classic and put together.  I recently had to retire my often worn navy pencil skirt, but not before I replaced it with this one. My last skirt was getting too big, yay! That's my favorite reason to replace something. 

I found this new navy skirt to be very comfortable, with soft fabric and just the right amount of stretch.  I wear skirts all the time, but sometimes I have trouble with them either riding up, or shifting around while I walk.  Some skirts are all over the place, and some stay where they are supposed to be.  I don't think it is determined by fit because I have both lose and tight skirts that do both.  Anyway, this skirt stays put!  I noticed that the lining is reversed.  Usually the silky side of the lining faces inward, but on this skirt the silky side of the lining is facing the skirt.  Maybe that has something to do with it.  If you're in need of a navy skirt try this one this one.

On my feet are my Ivanka Trump T-strap pink pumps.  I got them earlier this year at DSW (previously styled here.)  I have a couple of pairs of her shoes (like these) and I've found them all to be cute, comfortable, and reasonably priced. I can't find these exact shoes still available, but I linked to a similar pair below.

  1. Love the pink on pink. I like how you paired the dusty pink with the light pink - very chic. I'll have to try this.
