Thanks for reading!

As I mentioned on Twitter/Facebook a few weeks ago, I am not a pink polish type of gal. I’m not even really a super colorful outfits type of gal. If you could look at my closet, you’d see 70% neutrals and probably 30% color. But after seeing Lucky’s editorial spread in the January issue of (very) colorful outfits, I decided to take a risk. After all, it’s the new year, so why not try something new? I must admit that the end result was something I loved. Would I have ever put these pieces together — all in one outfit? Probably not. Ever. But I’m glad to know that I can be proven wrong. Bring on the color, 2013!
