Watermelon


Somehow, from a girl who hated pink, even in kindergarten, this hot neon shade has found its way into my wardrobe quite a lot lately. I have pink gladiators, bike shorts, lace dresses and now this beautiful batwing cardigan from Francesca at Babooshka.

I remember Camille's batwing cardigan from the day we went shopping together this past spring and being totally envious of the thang when I saw it, so clearly I was beyond excited when Francesca herself emailed me offering one of her pieces. Thank you so much! Check out her etsy store here.

Wearing a Babooshka pink cardigan , Victoria's Secret pink lace dress, American Apparel white tank top, talon necklace, vintage gold bracelet, and American Apparel neon pink bike shorts.

this is lovely!! I've always actually liked pink but transferring it into an adult wardrobe has been tricky. I think the key is colorful accents or simple pieces--just like what you have here :-)

I used to go through phases of either loving or hating pink. At the moment, I'm kind of indifferent. I do like this though, the bright colour of the cardigan works really well, and the talon pendant just gives it a nice quirky edge. The fact that you have the same pose as the statue is just a bonus, bringing humour to the picture!

That cardigan's ingenious, i loved it when i first saw it on Childhood Flames and i love it worn by you, in this different shade!

I like how you make the bike shorts work with everything :)

Eyeliah SS said...

Great mixes of red and pink, its such a fun look.

theTrendyDwarf said...

Wow! This is my first time seeing this type of a cardigan. I am obsessed with it! I recommend every woman to at least own one. Pink isn't such a bad color...actually I am a dude and I like it a lot. Your necklace is so super cool! I love it! Again with the biker shorts and I was wierded out at first when I saw you wear them..but now I am obsessed with them probably as much as you are.

I've always hated pink but recently really got into it =P haha. I bought lots of pink or rose colored pieces to mix with nudes or black/white looks. I love to add a pop of color to an outfit and pink is perfect for that.

The title is perfect for this outfit, it really is watermelon color. Love the batwing caridgan!

Love the cardigan by the way, it's so unique.
