The Stuff of Millennials
“On Wednesdays, we wear pink.”
And just about every other day of the week.
I knew something was seriously wrong (or not) with me when I was craving all things pink. (Well, ahem, not ALL things, but you get my drift.)
Everywhere I turn, it seems that SOME thing is in “Millennial Pink.” This isn’t the in your face Barbie Pink or barely pink Baby Pink (which surprisingly, a lot of Millennial mothers- yowza!- are consciously trying to staying away from. Example my sister’s request to have a non-baby pink baby shower and non-pink clothes for her baby gyal).
This post was inspired by my morning routine, aka TheSkimm, which took me on a trek to The Cut then to several other related tabs (See “Why Millennial Pink Refuses to go Away” for further explanation).
I tried my very best to stay away from the color after its association with some pretty overkill choices: thanks, Barbie and the 90’s and kitchens of 50’s (which I’ve now actually grown to love). As a youngun' I also loathed the pink undertones of my skin. I was perpetually pink. But, reality sank in not too long ago when I realized all my favorite shades of nail polish and lip gloss, are 50 shades of pink; that even though black is my go-to color, pink somehow slips into my wardrobe.
Every visit to any makeup counter, I’d search for pink blush (NARS) and pink gloss. At the nail salon, I’d spend 5-10 minutes debating between cobalt and emerald, only to grab a soft pink. My current obsessions? Tarte’s Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush and the Tartiest Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint. And Zara’s spring collection, especially this top V-Neck Choker Top.
So in honor of the pink craze, here are a few of my Polyvore outfits. (Only a few because apparently- I have more than 24 outfits that include pink!!)
7. Mini Handbag
8. One Shoulder
9. Fall Floral
12. Fun Times
13. Vineyard Wedding
14. Pom Pom Sandals
15. Box Clutch
Disclaimer: Pink is NOT my favorite color. Blue is. All beautiful shades of it.
