I recently went to a wear all-white party and it reminded me how much fun it can be to dress in pure, soft tones, whether it’s all white or even soft feminine hues like pink or cream.  Many studies will show that color has a real affect on our moods.  Pink for example, is normally connected to love and romance, being that it is a softer shade of red.  Other words often attributed with pink are softness, kindness, femininity, and apparently compassion as well.

I just learned however, that pink is also usually thought to provide a calming effect.  Maybe that’s why it’s the perfect color to wear on a date? You’ll not only calm yourself, but command peacefulness all around you? Hopefully? Maybe?

The one downside of pink, is it’s common attribution to childness.  When someone says pink, an image of a young girl in a pink dress with pigtails and pink bows may come to mind, but this is a wildly one-sided view.  Pink can be very sophisticated and mature.  It’s all about how you use it. Check out the outfit featured above.  Light pink skinny jeans are a lovely way to add a touch of soft color to a sophisticated yet casual look.  When paired with cream and gold, maybe even some rose gold, you’ll end up with nothing less than perfection.

White has many obvious implications.  For example, wedding dresses represent purity and innocence, but there are many other meanings associated with white.  White can be a new beginning, a fresh start, and even simplicity.  The color white is often used to make rooms seem larger.  White backgrounds are used to enhance appearances in pictures.

If simplicity, softness, and kindness are all qualities that sound pleasing to you, perhaps it’s time to see what effects you gain from incorporating some pink and white into your wardrobe.

Love,

Designer Styles to Add to your Wardrobe this Summer

Creating your wardrobe is like planning a party.  Think of your tops, your jeans, your shoes, your bags as guests!  To get the best party, you need a mixture of guests.  The social extraverted ones bring everyone together and the introverted ones provide an equilibrium to all the talking and excitement.  You need the talkers and the listeners.  In your wardrobe, you need the loud statements and the subtle beauties.  When you’re wearing jean shorts and a neutral henley top, all you need are a few loud statement pieces like hoop earrings or a diamond necklace to get that perfect party equilibrium!

5 Things a Night of Dancing will always Turn Into

  1. Drinking becomes a sport.  Who can hold their drink in their hand when dancing while spilling the least.

2. Those yummy cocktails you were drinking earlier in the evening, are slowly replaced by any alcohol you can get quickly poured into a plastic cup.

3. Whatever happened that day, will soon be forgotten when you’re wedged in between 100 other drunk individuals flailing on the dancing floor.

4. By the end of the night, the shoes that you once admired so much only hours ago, soon become your mortal enemy.

5. Regardless of what you were wearing that night, you end up waking up naked the next morning.
