Pink Fashion For Less

Pink has proven it has serious staying power in fashion so why not buy it for less.  The color pink was a huge trend for fall/winter and designers decided to continue the hue into spring/summer lines.  Anyone can find a shade of pink to compliment their skin tone, so why not find yours for less.

I am a sucker for a pleated skirt and when I found one in pink at H&M, I just had to buy it.   Pink and pleats are like a dream come true.    At least to me!  Designers are also featuring backless tops for the spring/summer collections, including  Zara‘s flirty option in (you guessed it) pink.   You can wear this top so many ways.  Zara shows it with the collar down, but I chose to pop the collar.  I can’t help myself.  I have a thing for popped collars.  It goes back to my days in high school as a preppy teenager.  I also chose to tie the back into a bow but it would look cute with the ties hanging down.  I recommend wearing it with high waisted jeans and a pair of Stan Smith sneakers.

The thing with fashion is it doesn’t always have to be expensive.  I strongly believe in mixing high and low labels.  I paired a top from Zara with a skirt from H&M.  Next, I added my Perrin Paris handbag with Aquazarra‘s Wild Thing Sandal to complete the look.  I have shot this bag before, but I’m obsessed so you will be seeing it often.  I purchased the sandals last season but they are also a classic.  Aquazarra makes them in new colors each season.  Classics are timeless. I wear this outfit for years to come and that’s really what fashion is all about.  I buy pieces that will stand the test of time.  However, I also try to be conscious and responsible, financially.  Every item in my closet doesn’t costs an arm and a leg.  Although,  I do have a few arms accompanied by a few legs, in my closet.  It’s all about balance.
