Winter Contrary : Sequins and Powder Pink







Considering the climatic conditions in which I pen this outfit post, it indeed is contradictory. As of today or the past fifteen days, I haven't enjoyed the privilege of wearing just one layer or even baring my legs! However, what is not conflicting and can be agreed upon is the fact that fashion lasts forever. Trends come and go, but trends that choose to stay, become a chapter to be swallowed in the ever expanding fashion Bible. Case in point - Sequins and bling! I wouldn't call sequins and bling a 'trend' anymore. They are fashion, bookmarked to last forever. Be that spring/summer or fall/winter there are always reasons and ways enough to adorn bling. What can vary per say is how you choose to wear it. Traditionally, fall/winter calls for deeper shades. But with this particular look I decided to attempt monotones. The good part about monotones is that you get to play with textures by way of your accessories. To experiment that, I picked up every accessory matching the gold skirt and the powder pink cardigan (let's call it blush pink please!). On a separate note, blush pink is fast climbing my color crush list. Stay tuned to see more of it this summer. For the while, do you remember this blush pink look?
