This colour scheme, from a very sweet birthday party, featured on Shelter inspired me. It is getting towards February, where pink and red are colours of the season. Whether you love or loathe Valentine's Day, I do always enjoy the injection of colour in a regularly gloomy month. Anyway, back to the sweet shades of pink and red . . . .
This is the Silk Betty Layered dress from Banana Republic. It's actually available in a Dark Steel, but I just love the Deep Rose shade. It makes me think of bright bursting Peonies in the spring!
It may sound silly, but I'm a sucker for really good pens - kind of like how Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks talk about bouquets of newly sharpened pencils in You've Got Mail. Maybe it's just a common teacher trait. Anyway, these Staedtler ones are my absolute favourites. Linking this in with my desire for all things poppy and pink today, I had to go buy a few this afternoon . . . .my pink one had died from overuse!
Last but not least, I've always loved the soft and subtle touches of hot pink in this Domino Magazine feature. I stumbled upon it while scouting through this feature on Apartment Therapy.
