Tickled pink

Life offers endless possibilities. Try something new today!

I’m not exactly sure how it happened or why. I just found myself gravitating to all shades of pink. Who knew that I would succumb to the color that I shunned for decades—and willingly too! Up until recently, I did not have anything of this saccharine hue in my wardrobe. Then, the unexplainable happened. I bought a pair of hot pink shoes and then, some accessories.These purchases may have forever piqued my fashion fervor toward Barbie’s favorite color.

For the first time this year, Pantone has chosen the pairing of two shades as color of the year—rose quartz and serenity blue. According to Pantone’s official page, rose quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and composure. Serenity blue, on the other hand, is “weightless and airy, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.” Blue has always been the color of any given year for me. Navy, royal, powder blue—I like it in all its shades. Now,however, it’s time to explore the power of pink.

Hot Hues

Hot pink in small servings works! Donning sneakers with every outfit is all the rage now. Since pink is already a striking color, I suggest pairing it with white, denim, or muted-colored apparel.

Perfect Pair

I found these ultra comfortable flats by a local manufacturer, Bella, at a Christmas bazaar in the South. I was immediately attracted to its animal print design, done in pink and blue. Mix and match the flats with handmade accessories from House of Heirloom and you’re ready to go.

Summer is also just a couple of months away. Enjoy a day in the sun with the roundie Mandala towel from Quiver.

The Girl in You

Rihanna wore volumes of pink when she attended the Grammy’s last year. Remember her dramatic, super last-minute entrance wearing a cupcake gown? Newly crowned Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach donned a terno in pink and white when she made her courtesy call at Malacañang last Tuesday. If these women can embrace pink, so can we!

The new year has brought a lot of changes. Change is definitely good. Opening up ourselves to possibilities, in small or big doses, means we choose to experience life. My gosh, even my iPhone 6 plus is rose gold! My four-year-old daughter certainly approves. More of my fab finds and adventures next week!
