Style Perspectives: Pops of Pink

Hi friends! Today is a BIG day for The Blended Blog Style Perspectives series. Not only are we styling Pops of Pink, but we have a $65 Paypal cash giveaway all the way at the bottom of the post. Help us celebrate this fun new series! Don’t forget to link up with us or share your look on Instagram using #TheBlendedBlogStyle


On to my Pops of Pink look. Pink isn’t a color I have much in my closet. As in, a couple things that are more of a really light red. So instead I reached for some Lilly Pulitzer (see all my Lilly looks). When in doubt #WearLilly 🙂 This Elsa top is a perfect transition to spring with the bright colors, but still pairs well with a vest to warm it up a bit. I went casual with a pair of flare jeans to complete the outfit. Oh, and how pretty is this tote? **all the heart eye emojis** It can hold a ridiculously large amount of stuff, I haven’t even come close to filling it up! There is even a tablet pocket AND a water bottle holder #GameChanger. I have a feeling I’ll be using it all.the.time.

Tell me, do you wear pink? Or are you more like me and like it as an accent?

If you missed last week Outer Layers posts, here is a recap of all of our looks! Also, be sure to come back next week to see (and join!) us style a White Pants look.

14 bloggers each picked a look that defined their personal style.
The featured blogger on the Blended Blog showcases her signature style (the prompt for that day) and then the other bloggers (on their personal blogs) show how they interpret it.
Make sure you stop by the Blended Blog to see the featured lady.

    I feel like this is the first time I’ve seen you in jeans? Also- a tote MUSt have a water bottle thingy…because it always manages to spill on my things and it is always on books I happen to be borrowing from someone. Great look!

      Thanks Deena! Jeans are not a big part of my closet, but every once in awhile I pull them out 🙂 Sounds like you definitely need a water bottle holder thingy.

    Swoon – that top looks amazing on you – and you paired it perfectly with that vest. That tote is also great! Fab look!

    This top is beautiful and so perfectly colored for Spring. Love this week’s theme Allison. Don’t forget to join my linkup tomorrow. Thanks, Ada. =)

    I love your outfit. That Lilly shirt is stunning! I’m obsessed with everything Lilly.

    1. Alison C

      I always buy my Lilly on sale or eBay. Then it is a lot cheaper 🙂 As for pink, I can just take small doses like in prints, but I don’t think I’ll be having an all pink shirt anytime soon.

    Alison! You have really outdone yourself, here. What a groovy top…works perfectly with the flares/bell bottoms – totally 70s-80s. That rich blue in your vest is perfect. Great bag. One of my very favorite looks ever. Wow!

    In the words of the best friend in “My Best Friend’s Wedding”…. “Love the shoes, love the bag…love you!” Have to also add, I love the hair, I have been working on that do and it is not quite right but you nailed it!

    Since I’m thin, tall and blond, I avoid it for the most part. I like to wear dusty pinks that are more of a neutral color instead of a pink, or corals. I rarely wear colors that are considered pink. If I ever do, I ALWAYS get a barbie comment. hahaha.
