I’m not a person who’s drawn to the color pink. Never have been, probably never will be. I see a lot of folks looking to infuse blush pink into their celebrations and I can appreciate that, blush looks particularly nice when paired with neutral tones and metallics. But I’ve always been a tomboy at heart think I naturally moved away from appreciating those traditional shades because of that.
I recently traveled to Spain and Portugal and noticed almost every clothing store I perused featured collections in neutrals plus this dusty rose color, and I fell in love. This color is modern yet classic, pairs wonderfully with neutrals but could also be used as a lighter accent in an otherwise dark and moody palette. It is feminine without being girly, and I absolutely love that. Probably because I could also use the phrase “it’s feminine without being girly” to describe myself. xo
