Spring and Pink Thinking

Did you humour yourself into dressing for the beach yesterday? Yes, no, maybe? The first day of spring came upon us finally, and as I observed many people in passing it was as if all seemed to be in a fashion trance. This was both refreshing and a tad amusing. I think I saw everything from festival shorts with crop-corset tops to layered fur, all donned in the cold temperature.

My only state of reverie was a practical one, keeping my scarf and stylish hat in my handbag for needed occasions. But, I did browse online for holiday locations, and took a moment to dig out this dress and accessories shoot that I had been waiting to share.
I know that I've said it beforehand—pink is one of those colours that I love, yet there’s not an abundance of pieces in my wardrobe in this (solid) hue. What better way to embrace the introduction to spring than in pink fashion!

I also decided to make my outfit versatile by adding more accessories. I had a previous engagement with a client, and afterward caught up with a friend for drinks, so a touch of gold accents could easily alter my look.

This was my preferred combination: a jacket, blends of white and gold, and of course a little vintage (scarf) never hurt anyone. There was an additional excuse to bring out my glitter heels as well. Remember these beauties? I am so pleased that they have received a lot of link love on the internet/blogosphere over the years. 

In celebration of seasonal change, here's a spring welcoming gift from me to you to start your weekend ... beautifully happy hydrangeas.

What accessories do you use to take an outfit from modern daytime to a gleaming night outing?

The goods: Bow handbag-Mark, Dress, Lion head necklace, and earrings-c/o Oasap, Glitter pumps-DIY, Cropped trench-Topshop, Printed scarf-Vintage, Belt-c/o Oasap (similar DIY).
*New beauty favourites: wearing Lancôme-Star Body Bronzer, and E.L.F. Studio HD blush in Superstar.

    That is such a good color for you! Sadly bright pink looks horrible on me, (I'm not much of a pink fan for myself though anyway, so it's okay, haha)

    Liebe Madison, Du siehst so wunderhübsch aus, ich liebe Dein Kleid! Du weißt, Pink gehört zu meinen Lieblingsfarben :) Da ich sehr selten ausgehe, brauche ich auch keine Accessoires, um ein alltägliches Outfit in ein Glamour-Outfit zu verwandeln ... und wenn es doch einmal der Fall sein sollte, trage ich Heels und eine tolle Tasche.

    Alles Liebe von Rena aus Bayern in Deutschland

    A perfect outfit for leaning prettily under a cherry blossom tree! Great shade of pale raspberry that suits you so well. I too own very little pink, but when I do wear it (a jumper here, a coat there) I feel like it lifts my mood a little.
    Back to winter temperatures today though...

  57. Spring is in the air! *sings* haha, it was actually 34 degrees this morning. We had a tease last week with warm weather and now it's chilly again. But soon... I can feel that there is warm weather in the future... science tells us so!!

    Pink is such a good color on you, aaah! That dress looks absolutely flippy and fun to twirl around in. I agree with Imogen--pink is stunning on you! Then again, you look kinda great in every color so... :D

    ReplyDelete
  58. :-) Haha! Thanks Ali! Yes, hopefully spring will arrive everywhere. I am ready for sandal weather. Have a lovely week, and stay warm. Madison

  59. Thank you so much Roz! Yes, sadly it seems to be cooler climates right now, but I am still hopeful for streams of sunshine. :) Take care./Madison

  60. Yes, it's actually on sale at the moment I believe. on Oasap, but I've seen it also on a few other sites. Thanks! :)

  62. It's funny you should ask this question as someone on my blog mentioned sequins. Sequins are a great way of making a statement that it's time for a glammed up evening.

  68. This shade of pink really suits you. I'm determined to wear more pink this spring but there are so many shades around at the moment. I was tempted by the very pale blush pink but I may just try something a little bolder!
