Pretty in Pink

Although I love tulle and twirl-worthy skirts, super-girly colors aren't usually my thing. But with pastels having such a big moment this spring and again this fall I decided to dabble with this darling MinkPink dress and matching beret. 

// Forever21 Black White Stripe Trench Coat (similar for $150) //
// Similar Stripe Coat under $130 // Similar Navy Stripe Trench under $60 // 
// MinkPink Fit Flare Pink Dress (also here) // Black Coach Willis Bag //
// H&M Big Black Bow Belt (similar) // Black Coach Nala Pumps // 
// Karen Walker Sunnies (similar under $60) // H&M Rings //
// C.wonder Gold Tassel Bracelet // Vintage Pink Beret // 

Since beanies can be a bore, I resorted to berets to keep warm this Winter...
and they allow me to continue pretending I'm in Paris, so that's always a plus! I also found myself often wearing two pairs of tights, especially when I wanted to wear a lighter coat like like striped one. Fingers crossed that I won't have to wear tights again until next fall. And a big black bow belt is something every bow-obsessed girl should have in her closet. It's a easy way to add a flirty feel to any dress or skirt... I've even worn it over coats - it made me feel like a puffer princess!

  12. What a cute dress! You've styled it perfectly. Don't you think one of the greatest joys is stumbling upon little ways to save big when you least expect it? We stopped by to hopefully help you do just that. We're Dorco, a manufacturer of high quality shaving systems, cartridges and disposable razors for men and women, and our razors cost up to 75% less than leading brands. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your shave. Our razors are crafted with the highest quality blades and lubricating strips containing moisturizing ingredients like aloe and vitamin E to soothe and hydrate even the most sensitive skin. But don't take our word for it--read what others think about our products and our prices at DorcoUSA.com. Thanks for hearing us out, and for sharing this lovely outfit with us!
