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!
