My hair melted in the heat today; we're suffering from record high temperatures here in Utah this spring, but you didn't come here to talk about the weather. You came to rubberneck at this pink-purple-turquoise thing I've got going on. I have to admit, the photos did not turn out as well as I might have hoped, but the ensemble itself - well, it is a thing of beauty.
Pink and purple have always been my favorite colors together; there is just something about each that complements the other oh-so-beautifully. I've nursed this romance in secret for most of my life, however, due to an elementary school bully (who shall remain nameless) who once made fun of me for wearing a pink shirt with purple socks. I thought I looked smokin', but apparently the lame-stream bullies and "cool kids" thought differently. Their insults wounded my poor 4th grade ego so much that I have not worn this combination that I love so very much since.
Until today, obviously. I was up at 2am this morning, fretting over today's wardrobe, when my hands landed upon this lovely turquoise draped blouse. My sleep deprived brain decided it would look amazing with my pink pleated skirt... which happened to be hanging next to my purple blazer. And so it was born: this uber cupcake chic look.
The large turquoise bangle that appears in the photos only sporadically was an impulse purchase from a nearby dollar store, about three minutes before I started snapping photos. A giant, oversize, sequin and sparkles bangle that matches my blouse perfectly for $1? I'll take them all. Not really, but that might have been funny.
Speaking of arm parties, seriously obsessing over The Man Repeller's Arm Party collab with Bauble Bar. I find myself desperately in need of one - anyone care to donate to the cause?
