Pink on Pink on Pink

This outfit sort of started off like a silly joke. Maybe it ended that way, too. I'm not sure yet. I had the desire to wear as much pink as possible, but in a manner that could maybe be pulled off? Ahh, something like that! I really can't stop wearing these maroon tights. (Psst... they're in the next outfit post, too!) Sometimes you really just need to get the worth out of them! Either way, I kind of actually really like this outfit so here it is! 

What can I say about it though? I'll just be as literal as possible! The dress is from AX Paris, the cardigan is an oldie from Target. The purse (with awesome gold zipper detailing!) is a vegan leather bag from Urban Expressions, the tights of course are Foot Traffic and the shoes are thrifted (originally from Target maybe?). All I know is that those shoes were 99 cents and my size. How could I say no?!

I'm trying to be back into the swing of things. Mike put together my desk yesterday and it's awesome! We entertained friends for dinner and crashed out immediately following. Yesterday was also a failed thrifting attempt. I'm heading out in a moment to go thrifting alone in hopes of scoring some bits and bobs! We have so many exciting things up our sleeves. We made some slightly big purchases for Honeybean/Hive + Honey so hopefully they do us well! We still don't have a Grand Opening date or location set but we know we'll be setting up at Oktoberfest in my hometown in mid-October. Totally not our demographic but hopefully there will be some gals from the high school who will come out and support handmade! Happy Wednesday! Wedding Wednesday will be back in full swing next week!!

What are your thoughts? Is it okay to mix this many shades of one color?

  2. Oh my gosh, are you kidding? Gorgeous! I love the fact that even though you're wearing lots of pink, it doesn't make it 'too much.' And since those tights go with any outfit, it makes dresses awesome year round. :)
    Have a good day, Kaelah!

  9. I think wearing that much pink looks gorgeous because you mixed it up with the different shades, patterns and textures. To quote Ted Mosby: "Totally pulling (it) off"

    I have a question for you though, will we be seeing your gorgeous red hair in an outfit post anytime soon? I love how it turned out!

    Have a great day!

  11. YES you totally can wear the same shade of a color...IMO as long as it's done just right...and not just one solid color for the ENTIRE outfit. What you have on is perfect! Love the tights! I really need to invest in colored tights for the Fall. I'm not even sure what color to start with!

    btw, I love the dress! So pretty!

    but even if some people dont think i look good, who cares right?
    i love this outfit, and i love the dress even more. :)

  32. I think this outfit looks great! Although there is a lot of pink, the shades are quite different and actually stop it looking all in-ya-face (haha!) :) I'm thinking about getting my dad to build me a gigantic desk so I can spread my work out a bit - either that or 2 desks - 1 for plans, 1 for computer! :)

  38. It looks great!! Love that purse, the color and the zipper detail are really nice. Love the flower print too.
    I have a pair of ashgreen leggins that I keep wearing. There just is something about the favorite pair of tights or Leggins that they just don't want to come off your legs anymore...right? So feeling you there ^^

    Can't wait to see the honeybean in full glow :) so excited for you.
