Pink but not so soft

There's no doubt that PINK is definitely my favorite color - the color of love. Do you know pink was originally assigned for boys because being related to red it was the more masculine and decided color. On the other hand, blue, which is more delicate and dainty, was prettier for girls. No wonder I always see toughness in pink. Today I'm mixing different shades of pink in the outfit. I have this very gorgeous blush pink lace boyfriend blazer that I bought from Vegas this summer and when I see it in the first time I can hear "da-lahhh" in my ears. I know it's a very sweet blazer and I'm taking a chance on pairing it with a pink button-up shirt. The two work very well together, overall they are from the same shade. Although it's pink, the button-up shirt tends to be a little more formal and serious and that's what make the outfit look a little more boyish and less girlie which is what I'm looking for. The big bow-tie adds more of a preppy feeling to this whole look. When you are having a whole lot on top, it's good to make the bottom the least complicated. A jean or simple legging will do the trick. Since it's summer, I'm going with short jean. I do not put on too much of accessories because I'm bringing my little studs bag. It's so eye-catching that it'll be inappropriate to let others take the attention away. 

Nude shoe is so in trend right now. I'm not normally going for such a girlie, sweet, and pointy shoe but I still have a few in my shoe rack just so I can have a pair when I need it for my outfit. In this look I am taking it out because the color matches perfectly with the blazer. A pair of nude lace socks adds a little fun and brings the sweetness to the max.
