Blue And PinkPosted: July 8, 2011
For somebody who doesn’t like to wear sleeveless, I sure do own a lot of sleeveless dresses (6 in total.) I guess my thought process when I bought them was “Eh, I can just throw on a cardigan, it’ll be fine.” What I didn’t think about was warm summer days like this, when a cardigan is quite out of the question and I need to utilize this dress as a top. So I took the plunge and wore the dress anyway (I did bring a cardigan with me, but that was just for my air-conditioned office.)
I also took a risk in pairing this blue brooch with the pink dress – a color combination that screams “baby shower” – but I wanted something that stands out from the print, plus the colors are dark enough so they look more like the Flickr logo than a baby shower.
Interesting tidbit: while looking for something more inspiring than “blue and pink” to title my post, I discovered that, allegedly, pink was once considered a color for boys (because it was viewed as a pale red, hence a “stronger” color), and blue (a softer, and thus more “dainty”, color) for girls. I don’t know how correct that info is, but I think the whole gender-specific color thing is just a bunch of codswallop anyway.
