I have a birthday coming up at the end of the month. Perhaps I’ll blame birthdays (which sounds nicer than aging) for my latest obsession: hot pink. Not just pink, mind you, not a subdued blush, or a soft wash of color, but an in-your-face explosion of fuchsia.
I don’t know if I just needed a break from my usual all-black-all-day, or if I’ve just been feeling extra tired lately (thus appreciating the perking-up effect of pink)….but it’s one of those colors that I’m finding surprisingly easy to wear. And hearing, “You look nice today!!” whenever I wear it doesn’t hurt either.
But this particular pink, with all of it’s perking power, is, admittedly, a Hue That Requires A Commitment To Color. It’s not some dusty mauve wallflower, nor is it a pretty-pretty pinky pink, rather it’s a….badass sort of pink. It’s more Neon-Pink-Meets-Black-And-Has-A-One-Night-Stand, less Frost-Those-Cookies-In-Your-Floral-Apron-Pink.
And I’m finding that – not only – does hot pink work like a facelift, but it pairs really well with both jeans (yay) and….mah PINK PANTS. Forget mixed prints, mixed PINKS.

February called – it said Valentine’s Day is coming early this year. Guess who’ll be ready?
