Style Perspectives: shades of pink and GIVEAWAY!!!

Wednesday, March 9, 2016

Welcome to week two of Style Perspectives hosted by the Blended Blog

This week we're styling shades of pink. 

BUT before I jump into how I wore pink - check out how all the Blended Blog ladies styled a wrap/outerlayers. 

some great looks, no? 

Alright, now onto me wearing pink. 

First, let me tell you that I randomly bought these pants online (they were on sale for $15!) and I really had no idea what color they were. They were called violet but looked white. I took the plunge anyways. Wasn't I pleasantly surprised when I opened the package to see one of Pantone's colors of the year staring back at me?! Now that's just lucky! AND they fit (okay, maybe not technically as I'm vertically challenged, but for the most part they're all good).

Second, even with all the craziness up in my house (more about that here), I somehow managed to find some time to take a few pics... not exactly high quality but hey, I took pics... child-FREE!AND they're not mirror selfies. #winning (and yes, these are the things I get excited about these days).

True story: when I went to take these pics I kind of panicked realizing I had NO IDEA how to wear these pants. So, in true Shaunacey fashion and as I do in most areas of my life: I winged it... 

If you've been around any length of time, you know how I love me some casual outfits. I'll probably wear this on repeat. Forever. Also, I apologize for how often this shirt appears on here, apparently it's all I wear. Whatevs, it's comfy, goes with everything and hides nearly all snot/spitup/residual food messes. Perfect for a mom running from her children on the run

I'm not in love with this, at all. I considered not posting it, but I accidentally selected it and figured here's to transparency. The purse doesn't match and looked a much different tone in my closet (now I'm deeply concerned about my closet lighting and some previous pairings - le sigh). Also, top isn't super flattering, or perhaps I need to drink less wine do more crunches. I should probably ditch it. Duly noted. I do love the pants and the boots though so there's that.

This one is kinda "meh" for me. Maybe I'd like it better with closed-toe shoes?! Maybe I just need a cute purse or something. Maybe I just don't get out of the house enough to wear stuff like this lol, yes, let's go with that.

I also came to the conclusion they'd look pretty with a white top of some kind but I own no white tops. I see a shopping trip in my near future.
