On this Friday I’m participating in another Style Imitating Art style challenge. In addition to not wearing any black again today, I’m using this photo, chosen by Jess of Animated Cardigan to come up with my outfit.

So, of course there’s the pink in the blazer. And I added the polka dot sweater and the pearls as an homage to the dots on the painting. This outfit is actually perfect for today’s weather because the sweater is short-sleeved which means I won’t get too hot with our heat wave of 32 degrees!

Also, pairing pink with neutrals such as gray or black make it a lot more appropriate for wearing in the winter. The last time I wore this blazer it was still chilly outside and I paired it with black to keep it from looking too much like spring.

So, if you’re looking to add some color to your winter wardrobe, don’t forget about pink. It’s not just for spring and summer anymore!
