Pink & Florals


Good morning everyone! This will be a fairly quick post just to share this little leftover Valentine's Day look: what I wore to work yesterday/on a pre-work wander. It's girly, it's pink, it's matchy matchy. Admittedly I tend to get in those modes during holiday occasions. Humorously enough I'm pretty sure I was the only one wearing pink out & about, & certainly the only one at work. Is it really just me who likes to colour coordinate with holidays? 

Other than the obvious excessive use of pink I really liked this outfit; I'm a huge fan of high-waisted pants & I really liked these paired with the vintage pink belt. The ditsy floral top is a bit of an oldie... purchased in Dublin in 2010. I don't wear it very often so I was glad to incorporate it in my Valentine's Day look. As for the Cambridge Satchel, it really is a head-turner. I've yet to go somewhere without having people stop me to pass a comment. It's such a vibrant, fun piece :)

What did you wear this Valentine's Day? 







I was wearing:
High-waisted pants - American Apparel (here)
Ditsy Floral top - Zara (old)
Neon pink satchel - Cambridge Satchel Company
Gold Chronograph Watch - Michael Kors (here)
Loafers - Michael Kors
Pink belt - vintage

  2. So cute! I love matching parts of my outfits. :) I like color coordination more than clashing colors. That satchel is so cute! I would love to have one for school. Beautiful as usual!

  11. You looked absolutely lovely on Vday! I also opted to wear pink versus red yesterday! I had pink polka dots, magenta tights, and pink swedish hasbeens! :)
    I'm also a fan of high waisted pants and those are uh-mazing! I think I already said (when you posted on Jen's blog) that I adore that satchel of yours. I am desperate to purchase one of the colors on ModCloth.

  15. Oh wow, I adore the pinkness in this outfit! And I'm typically not a pink girl. Haha, but that neon pink bag won me over. I love how you dressed with the holiday :) You look gorgeous!
    Sadly, I didn't dress up for Valentines Day...aha, I've never really been sold on this holiday. Besides, it's spirit week at my school and I've been dressing up for that haha.
