My Pink Sweater. I can hardly believe I own a sweater that is pink. And one with hearts on too! Instagrammer’s love pink, but not not this Instagrammer!
Although I wear skirts and dresses, I’m certainly not a girly, girl all the time. You’ll never see me in ballet pumps, they are honestly my worst nightmare. You’ll rarely see me in high heels unless it’s for a special occasion, but you’ll often see me in brogues or trainers, because hello comfort, and the fact they’re not too girly.
Pink hasn’t really been a colour floating around in my wardrobe since I was around 8 years old. I feel super uncomfortable in colours and outfits that make me look, well, really girly. It just doesn’t suit my personality! However, I started to notice late in 2017, that the colour pink was making its way into loads of clothing and shoe stores, and some of the shades were actually bearable, in fact, so bearable, I found myself picking up pink items from shelves and wondering who I’d become.
I wore a pink H&M t-shirt when I was travelling in India last year, a deeper shade of pink that worked well with black skinny jeans and white Superga’s. Next thing Christmas rolled around and I became the proud owner of pink Van’s, a dusky, very cool pink, not too girly in my opinion.
And then I spotted My Pink Sweater online, and I felt in love immediately. Walking past & other stories one Saturday afternoon, I popped in to try it on, and took a glance in the mirror. Sold. I even bought a pair of pink sunglasses at the same time. I don’t know what is happening to me. My pink sweater is super cosy and warm and it goes perfectly with a pair of blue jeans and white Superga’s. If you’re in the market for something pink, and something perfect for these cold February days, they’ve still got stock online.
So here’s to a new shade in my wardrobe. But please, if you ever spot me wearing something pink and purple with a butterfly pattern, understand I’ve 100% lost my mind, and you should find me a straight jacket immediately. ;o)
