A taffy pink skirt in tulle for a 60 Year-old fashionista? YES, let me tell you why.
Ok, first I will ask, why not? Pink is for everyone; every gender and any age. Taffy pink is especially sweet. A taffy pink skirt must be styled with a bit of an edge, though, unless one is 6 years old, and not 60!
Below, in my taffy pink skirt!
Embellished, but distressed cowboy boots add a tough vibe to this delicate tulle number. As well, the black Hermes bag ( gulp, GIFT!! ) is a super casual addition . A plain fisherman knit sweater, a perennial favorite of mine is a classic and neutral vibe. The buttoned adorned cap is just fun. Voilà, my taffy pink skirt is suddenly not so saccharine sweet.
What is taffy pink? Let me direct you to the color chart.
I have no earthly idea if this particular shade of pink is trending or not, nor do I give a whiff. Purchased at LVIS, it is brand new by ASOS and it cost me but a song. My sweater is an eBay find, and is by Ralph Lauren in the softest merino wool. Who doesn’t love a broken in Frye western boot? Loving these embellished ones bought on eBay !
Sitting on the sidewalk steps I am amusing myself as I watch passersby. I am swishing my full tulle skirt and moving my feet to see if the studs will catch the light . I barely contain a silly laugh in this shot, so it is naturally my favorite in this small selection.
Look closer at the skirt and boot combo. Not an obvious style choice, right? Yet, it is quintessentially me.
Now I depart from this outfit and show you a stunning cake in these same pink and cream colors. With an upcoming wedding for my son and fiancé , I have festive cakes on my mind. Behold, as this is taffy pink sweet!
Another great piece in taffy pink tulle is this frothy dress from a small boutique! Elegant date night anyone? How about a waltz on the veranda?
Who else is feeling pink and swoony? Perhaps it is the marathon length of violently rainy days,, but I am craving the colors of blossoms, and ripe fruit; sunsets in lavender ribbons, tossed with peach and festooned in the night’s sky.
So that is a mid week for you in mid-August. Tell me how you are? Is this dull weather spurring you to reach for saturated color and happy prints?
Let me know. You know how!
