I took over FabFitFun’s Snapchat and got to show a little “behind the scenes” look at my Saturday. From getting ready to picking out my outfit – I showed the entire process. I started off the day at a delicious brunch at a placed called BoCaphe in Soho, then ended up at a rooftop bar in Brooklyn. Then, called it an early night.
After an action-packed day, it was time to reflect and link to all of the items I showcased. So low and behold, my outfit details below!
You’ve seen it all over your Instagram feed. You’ve seen it walk down the red carpet at major award shows. You’ve seen it at your favorite cafés or matcha shops. Hell, you’ve even worn it. But the one thing you may not know is why “millennial pink,” as The New York Times is calling it, is the biggest thing right now.
The thought of bubble gum, or worse, neon pink used to make me literally cringe. For years and years I refused to wear such a thing. In fact, I threw out everything in my closet that even resembled the lovey-dovey color. Fast forward to 2017 and half of my wardrobe is shades of pink. In fact, my wardrobe has been this way since 2016. Usually I’m used to a “color of the year” sweeping in and making its mark, but something is different about this trend – it’s here to stay.
As such, some of the worlds most respected fashion bloggers like Marianna Hewitt revolve their Instagram feeds and websites around shades of blush and soft pink. Even brands like Glossier are choosing to launch campaigns designed around this very same theme. The question of “why?” still remains.
According to The New York Times, they seem to think the answer is as simple as the fact that, “the color keeps on selling product.” Not only that, but in this social-media obsessed world we live in, the color “happens to be both flattering and generally pleasing to the eye,” according to Editor Lauren Schwartzberg. I couldn’t agree more.
We’re also in an interesting moment of time where both women and men aren’t afraid to break outside of cultural norms by wearing a color that has been perceived as gender-specific for years. So as spring continues and summer nears, don’t be surprised if you see this trend on everyone and everywhere.
For those of you that haven’t hopped on the bandwagon just yet (or for those of you that are so obsessed that you just want MORE), you can shop some of my favorite “millennial pink” items below, plus the look that I’m wearing in the pictured photos. Enjoy!
My Look As you can see, for this look, it’s all about the “millennial pink” accessories, rather than a full-pink outfit. From my earrings to my heels to my purse to the flowers, all of my accessories bring this trend to life.
From fluffy pillows to lush blankets and beautiful candles, you can’t go wrong. Below, show some of my all time favorite millennial pink decor items. Perfect for a small apartment or girly makeup room.
Women’s Fashion I’ve pulled together some looks ranging from comfy t-shirts to fun dresses that all embody the essence of blush pink. Click around below to shop your favorite styles.
Men’s Fashion A man in pink is a confident man. There’s no better time than the spring/summer to wear vibrant and bright colors, especially on items like swim trunks or collard shirts.
Are you ever wearing a killer outfit, but still just notice something is missing? Sometimes it isn’t about what you’re wearing, but how you style it. A small (and cheap) accessory can go a longggg way and totally up the look of your outfit.
I love accessorizing because it’s an opportunity to express yourself. Take these rose gold frames for example – I don’t have prescription glasses, but it’s still fund to “pretend” for the day. That’s why I wanted to share some of my favorite accessories, all under $15 with you! Click the photos below to purchase.
I’m not done yet… You can also snag my new favorite (and comfiest) camo sweatsuit for $22.00. Yes, I know, I almost passed out when I heard the price too. And yes, that price is for the top AND bottom. Get it HERE.
Congrats to Nick and Vanessa and all, but can we just talk about Rachel Lindsay’s jumper?! That black, plunging one-piece was an absolute SHOW STOPPER. I immediately went on a hunt to find it (because I need to have it) and it turns out that it’s Jovani. It retails at around $400 and comes in multiple colors, but I had to find it for less. So low and behold…. Rachel Lindsay’s After the Final Rose Jumper for less!
To be honest, February Fashion Week is just never the same as September Fashion week in my opinion. Maybe it has to do with the cold NYC weather or maybe it’s just “how it is.” Who knows! Either way, I just wasn’t super into it this time around.
Don’t get me wrong, I love going to shows and seeing such beautiful collections from the worlds most talented designers. I love attending events as a blogger and seeing my industry friends that have become some of my favorite humans. I love connecting with brand rep’s and photographers from all over the world. It’s never short of amazing, but sometimes you just need a night in, a big ol’ glass of wine and comfy shoes.
That’s why I choose to be selective with what I attend. I don’t feel the need to go everywhere just to post it on social media and come across “cool.” If I’m tired, I stay in. If I’m feeling social, I go out. I don’t ever go to something because I feel like I need to. I go because I want to!
