Day of Pink

Yes, I know… National Pink Day was yesterday, but since I post every MWF I decided to dedicate a post all about pink today! Pink used to be my favorite color as a little girl because of its feminine quality and probably because society deemed pink as a “girlie” color. I would want the pink candy, a pink dress, a pink bow in my hair and I didn’t give other colors a chance. I usually don’t wear a lot of pink now, but it looks like I managed to shoot a few outfits of various shades of pink throughout my time as a blogger. Here’s a recap of some of my pink outfits and a few fun facts I learned about National Pink Day!
