This spring, all I’ve wanted to wear is…PINK! Time and time again I find myself reaching for the nearest pink item in my closet—it’s just the perfect shade to transition into warmer months! Unfortunately, I hardly own any pink items…When you look at my closet it’s a sea of blacks, greys, and blues. Can any of you relate? So as you can imagine, I’ve been rewearing the same pink pieces over and over again lately (like this sweater, which makes up half of this post). Today I wanted to round up a few of my favorite pink looks and showcase how to style this girly color in multiple ways! (And all of the original blog posts are linked below each photo). Enjoy, my fellow pink-lovers.
The Story of a Rainy Day—Told Through Haikus
Y’all probably remember me posting this outfit a few weeks ago, along with a series of funny haikus. Even though this sweater is a light, subtle pink, it pairs perfectly with bold accessories for a fun yet simple spring outfit.
How to Transition Fall Colors to Spring
This outfit is super old but the blog post is still very relevant—how to transition fall color to the springtime! This muted pink floral skirt is one that I would usually wear in the fall, but pairing it with summery fabrics like crochet and denim make the dusty rose colors more appropriate for this season.
24 Hours in a Day and Only One to Be Upset
This is another recent outfit, featuring the cutest flamingo tee and most stylish, Elle Woods-inspired hot pink blazer. At first I was nervous about purchasing this blazer because of its neon color, but I’m so glad I did! Neon is coming back this season, and the pink adds an unexpected twist to an otherwise “boring” blazer. I love how you can pair it with a tee and jeans for a casual look, as shown here, or dress up the blazer for work with a nice dress or black pencil skirt.
Another old outfit but one of my favorites! Maybe I’m just biased ‘cause I love how my hair looks in these photos?? Either way, this outfit showcases pink in an edgier light—the color doesn’t just have to be ultra girly. Whereas in the first outfit of this post this pink sweater is paired with bright colors for a cutesy casual look, this outfit gives the sweater a more BA vibe by incorporating pleather and a choker. I love this for a “going-out” look!
Surviving School in the Spring
And just like that…back to the girliness. Even though this blouse only has subtle shades of pink in the floral print, I tried to play that up by adding pink jewelry, a belt, flowers in my hair, and a polka dot purse. Your choice of pink doesn’t have to be bold and loud to make your outfit feel spring-y. These subtle accessories do the trick just as well!
Trend Tester Series: Tuxedo Stripe Jeans
Hello pink sweater my old friend…I’ve come to talk [about] you again. (Simon and Garfunkel parody, anyone??) If you pay close attention, you may have realized that this outfit is the EXACT same pairing of clothing as the first look in this post—pink sweater, tuxedo stripe jeans. BUT all the accessories are different, and ultimately the outfits have totally different vibes. Now that’s versatility. By pairing the pink with a beanie, big sunglasses, sneakers, and a funky purse for this outfit, the look has a very cool and “street style” vibe, which really stands out compared to the other outfits thus far. (Yes, I just used the word “thus” ‘cause I’m nerdy like that.)
10 Ways to Celebrate This V-Day
Does maroon count as pink? In this case, I’m declaring that it does. I wear a lot more maroon than true pink, but I just love how flattering a color it is, no matter how pale you are. This is what I would call a “saucy” look, but this faux-wrap crop top looks just as great with skinny jeans and heels for a night out as it does with a skirt and jean jacket for a day hanging with your gal pals.
Stop, stop…you’re making me BLUSH! I lovvvve the color blush, but unfortunately it doesn’t love me back, so I’ve finally decided to stop buying it. Regardless, I still love how this outfit turned out, with the casual blush tee and fun criss-cross details paired with one of my favorite, most unique skirts. This makes a great travel outfit because of the shoes and how comfy the overall look is, and I mean, come on—can you ever go wrong with a good set of stripes?
Maybe She’s Born with It, Maybe It’s Confidence
Just when you thought I was done with this pink sweater…nope! This time I paired it with a red vest and brown accessories for a fall look (although this would also be cute for Valentine’s Day!). So if you haven’t noticed, this sweater is the very definition of versatile—pair it with skirts, jeans, vests; make it an edgy, casual, or girly look; you name it. Clearly a softer shade of pink is “safer” in terms of being able to pair it with a ton of different items. If you’re considering introducing more of this color into your wardrobe, I’d recommend something light like this sweater to start.
Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking. Clearly I’m in a referencing sort of mood today. Who can name that movie in the comments? Even though I’d say yellow is the main color of this outfit, I absolutely love how the pink florals in the cardigan brighten the look and make it SO perfect for the season. Not to mention, the cardigan provides a great layer for those chilly spring mornings.
Do you own a lot of pink? Do you love to style it in the spring, and if not, why? I want to hear from you in the comments! Thanks for stopping by, and have a fantastic Monday. The last one in April—crazy!
Miles of smiles,

Actually wearing bright pink tomorrow! paired with green! I am Loving pink this spring too! I wouldn’t have thought of pairing yellow and pink but I really like it and I do love how versatile your pink sweater is: you wouldn’t know it is the same one because of how you styled it so differently!
Thanks so much, Mireille! I loved seeing your outfit on Instagram. Green and pink are actually my two favorite colors, and I love pairing them together in my outfits! Especially forest green with light/blush pink. 🙂
Obsessed with this pink!
