THIS OR THAT – PRETTY IN PINK

23 total views

Pink is one of my favorite colors, and every time that I wear something in pink, I’ll start singing Pink by Aerosmith. I think that I might have made up a few of the lyrics because the version that I sing isn’t the real lyrics. Lol!

If you are like me, you find that a lot of songs that you sing might not be the exact lyrics of the song. In our defense, some lyrics are hard to understand, and some of them don’t even make sense. But, the lyrics of “Pink” are, Pink, it’s the color of passion ‘Cause today it just goes with the fashion and those are perfect for today’s This or That post.

I think you are going to have a tough time deciding which of these outfits you like the best, so I bet we’ll see a lot of BOTH comments. Let’s start with THIS outfit first. This No-Iron Stretch Island Shirt is a show stopper! As soon as I saw the shirt, I hit the Add To Cart button! I love that it is No-Iron, but it is the gorgeous print that stopped me in my tracks. You can wear this with so many things, and I can’t wait to wear this shirt again when Joe and I go out to eat. I’m wearing a size 1, and I have plenty of room and not bumps and lumps showing.

Here is the view where you can see the length of the shirt. It is plenty long enough to cover your bottom half and would look great with a pair of crop leggings.

To bring out the lemons in the print, I added a pair of Lemon Stretch Bracelets. This pair is adorable, and I’ll wear them with white, navy, pink, gray, etc., They stretch over your hand, so you don’t have to worry about fastening them.

Instead of wearing white or colored pants, I decided to wear these So Slimming Girlfriend Roll Hem Jeans in the color of Blush Stone Indigo. I love the very slight distressing on the jeans, and the rolled cuff hem that keeps the outfit looking casual. The cuff can be unrolled iof you prefer, and the length would then be 26.6″ long. I’m wearing size .05 in these, and I think they run TTS. Here are a few jeans that would also look great with this shirt.

The Island T-Strap Sandals that feature lemons are sooooo cute! I couldn’t wait to get these sandals, and they are everything that I was hoping for and more. The sandals add a touch of fun and whimsy to any outfit while the padded sole keeps your feet happy. I am thrilled that Chicos is now carrying shoes, and they seem just as nice as their clothing and jewelry. These sandals run TTS, and I’m wearing my usual size 9.

Now, let’s look at the Pretty in Pink outfit number two, aka THAT. I know that a lot of you haven’t gotten used to seeing dresses and tops so oversized and flowy, but once you hop onboard this trend, you’ll be so happy you did!

I wore this Modern Peasant Dress out to dinner on the Sunset Terrace at the Omni Grove Park Inn while I was in Asheville a couple of weekends ago. The dress makes a huge statement and is elegant looking. Plus, since I was wearing it to dinner, I loved that the dress didn’t touch my stomach in any way. Lol! I love the casual look of the dress, but it can be worn to any event you choose. If you are going on a vacation, be sure to have this dress packed in your suitcase for a night out. I’m wearing my usual size 1, and it fits me great.

Here is a look at the back of the dress. You can see how the smocking on the shoulders create lots of mini pleats.

With a dress this bright and bold, I didn’t wear a lot of jewelry. I added a pair of yellow and pink ball earrings, but they have already sold out online. I almost ordered these Hoop Earrings with a pink flower, and I think they would have looked great also.

This Jute Flower Tote is stunning!!! Normally, I think of a straw tote as something that I would carry at the beach, but this tote is one that I would carry any time. It would look great with a summer tee and shorts outfit, or with jeans and a button-up shirt. The ways to carry this tote is endless!

Are you tired of seeing me wear these White Beaded T-Strap Sandals? I’ve worn them a lot lately because they match anything and everything. I love these so much that I’m thinking about grabbing the blue version also. The sandals run TTS, and I’m wearing my usual size 9.
