Let me tell you the story of my high school career. I played the semi-ditzy blonde, who was actually quite book smart (life-smart is a WHOLE ‘NOTHER STORY) and spent her spare evenings leading the girl’s basketball team. I carried around a pink rolly backpack (why did someone not stop me from doing this?!), rebelled against the school uniform by wearing colorful socks, and was voted ‘loudest’ for my senior superlative.
Do I regret some of those things? Of course - mostly the backpack thing, but if there’s one thing I don’t regret is making my favorite color known to everyone: PINK. All kinds of pink. In fact, my history teacher was convinced that someday I would own a store called “The Pink Panther Boutique” and make millions (he even wrote it in my graduation Bible so I’d never forget!)
To this day, I still love pink. There’s something that just makes me so happy when I wear it, so when I saw this blush pink blazer at LOFT, I HADDD to have it. It’s fancy enough that I can wear it to work, but looks great when dressed down with jeans and pumps for a night out.
SPEAKING OF PINK - Pink Palm DC is having their Grand Reopening event tomorrow in Alexandria from 10-7! Will I see you there?!
