To put a little twist on Valentine’s Day, we are thinking “power pink”!  And yes, we still love red, but we just can’t stop thinking pink!

 A few things we love about “power pink”:

…It definitely makes a statement!

…And it represents strength in femininity!

How do you plan to start your Valentine’s Day?   I’m planning to start the day off with a brisk walk in the park wearing a bright pink pullover with my black leggings and Nike’s.  The perfect outfit to get my “heart” rate up….right?  A heart sweatshirt is another great look for the gym and for running errands on Valentine’s Day.  

Do you have a special day planned with your little Valentines? Maybe you are room mom and want a cute outfit to wear to the kiddo’s Valentine’s party.  You will fit right in with a hot pink sweater worn over a black and white heart printed shirt….just add a cute necklace and jeans.  And these days, grandmothers can be found doing playground duty.  I’m thinking layers are the obvious style for this fun volunteer job.  A power pink vest layered over a black and white polka-dot sweater and pink plaid shirt will definitely get the job done!

Want to feel like a princess?  Then you may want to consider copying Kate Middleton’s look, a power pink coat….such a classy way to wear this bold color.  Plus, there are so many coat options for you to see on our Pinterest board….from a hot pink puffer coat to a bright pink Teddy Bear coat, we’ve got you covered. And remember this….you do not have to be a royal to look like a royal!

My favorite power pink obsession is definitely a skirt.  There are two peplum skirts on our board that would be perfect for a Valentine’s date night.  One is ultra-dressy with red trim and paired with a matching red sweater.  See, we aren’t leaving red out altogether.  Though my favorite is a power pink peplum skirt paired with a white-button down shirt tied at the waist.  Just be sure to watch out for Cupid!!!

Maybe an all-pink ensemble is a little much for you, but I bet you would be interested in adding a pop of pink to your V-Day style.  Then think about kicking it off with a pair of hot pink shoes….from heels, slides, sneakers, and sandals, there are so many fun shoes to choose from.  Two fun casual styles I love are a pair of hot pink Converse sneakers and a pair of Adidas superstar pink striped sneakers.   And I’m also crushing on a cute pair of J Crew pink satin slides with bows and their lush suede power pink pumps.  Trust me when I say….all of these shoes will “step-up” your V-Day style!


Did you know power pink is an awesome hue for color blocking? A pink sweater combined with a green skirt is definitely a show stealer.  Though, my absolute favorite color blocked combo is pink and camel.  A camel coat worn over a pink dress would be ideal for a ladies luncheon.  And an oversized camel turtleneck paired with a pink pencil skirt brings femininity to a whole new level!  

 So whether you plan to add a pop of power pink or wear a whole pink ensemble on Valentine’s Day….we’re pretty sure you will feel bold and empowered!  And again, beware of Cupid…he’s a sneaky little rascal!
