Pretty In Pink: Wearing Color

Hello Darlings, Is there an age limit to wear certain colors such as pink or baby blue? From what I’ve been told, the answer is yes if one wants to be taken seriously. So pink is only for not so serious people. While this may be the case for those who believe it, I strongly disagree.

Dressing age appropriate is important, but also saying that something cannot be worn after a certain age is silly. There is always a way to wear your favourite trend or colour that is age appropriate and looks great. So no more of that I am too old for it spiel.For me, that dilemma was my love over pink. I love pink no ifs or buts, I just love it! At first, I was weary of the called “childish” color but in the past year I have come to embrace it.

Almost everything can be worn so long as it is worn in moderation. For example, I thought that neon pink and a yellow bikini was an ideal vacation addition as it is fun. However, there is no way that I would wear such a bold print in the city in a form of a top or a dress. Bright pink is also a lively touch when mixed with colors and worn with simple silhouettes. More so, my favorite way to wear pink is with accessories such as purses, shoes and jewelry.However overdosing on baby pink and bows is reminiscent of a baby nursery!

What’s the fun in coming up with does and don’ts when anything can work for you as long as you have the confidence and a little imagination. In my mind, pink is a perfect colour for my bubbly personality and I will always wear it. Always stay true to what you love and never allow others to tell you otherwise!

With Love…

Marta

    Oh Marta, I wish I had your figure! 🙂

    I agree, I don’t think there’s a blanket rule for age-appropriateness at all. I’ve seen 50+ women wear miniskirts and look fantastic… and then again I have seen some who don’t. I think it’s just up to how you pull it off and how it goes with your personality. I love pink and don’t see myself giving it up because of my age!

      Leia, you are too kind!

      I absolutely agree, it is how you wear a certain look as opposed to an age 🙂

    The bikini is the most gorgeous print ever. And I love the pink outfit. Those shorts are so pretty.
    There’s definitely no age limit on colour! It’s all about having fun.

      Thank you so much, pink is not the easiest to wear with red 😛

      As for the vacation, it was a working one but still was nice to spend some time at the beach. Would be nice to actually unplug for a few days.

    I adore pink as well. Hot pink is my favourite — I adore it with turquoise. You look fabulous in pink!

    You look like a little boy who got hit in the nose with a baseball bat and has on dentures.

    So if you could please explain, why do you take so many pictures of yourself?
