Long live millennial pink.
With spring finally here — albeit in drips and drabs — my wardrobe has finally had a little seasonal shift and I’ve living for outfits that aren’t entirely centred around black. So I might have gotten a little too excited about packing my knits away when last week was spent shivering in camis and tees… What’s life without a little risk here and there? As I said to Sare before we braved the 92% chance of rain on the day we shot these: life loves a risk-taker.
(FYI, it didn’t rain for the entire 2 hours we were out shooting! Praise be for that 8%!)
Millennial pink is one of my favourite ‘millennial’ tropes. Whilst it’s slightly redonkadonkalous that it’s supposedly a regression to our childhood selves of prancing about in baby pink for a baby girl, I say why the hell not? Life has thrown us curveballs in the shape of political unrest, a housing market less stable than my attempts at playing Screwball Scramble (high five fellow ‘90s kids) and an employment landscape changing faster than you can say ‘Send Tweet’. So be it that this beautiful blush hue defines 2018 and beyond. I’m here for it.
This darling Zohar blouse in blush from Tobi is somewhat of a new favourite. The cross front adds a little something that provides just enough everyday allure: I wore it with a black lace bra from Monki underneath but would recommend a super thin black (or the exact same shade of pink) lace-trimmed cami if this is a little out there for you or if you don’t want to attract too many stares. However I think the flash of black helps to ground this look that is, let’s face it, almost too wishy-washy and pink.
Tucked into my ever-faithful Levi’s 501 straight-legged jeans and with a pair of pin-thin stilettos, this is my go-to girl-about-town look for springtime brunch dates with the girls. There’s just something about that iconic red Levi’s flag that brings the jeans together with the best sort of insouciance. Note to self: red lipstick and heels will always work wonders.
Of course I couldn’t resist wearing it out and about with my Cloud convertible backpack by The Cambridge Satchel Company. Sarah and I gushed about it over hot chocolates and sugary treats from Patisserie Valerie, which is probably the most apt social occasion in the diary for a bag this sweet.
