“I Believe In Pink” ~ Audrey Hepburn

I blame you (and Audrey Hepburn) entirely for this post, Blog Reader.  Having read all your lovely comments on my black BCBG Max Azria Essential Knit Dress (thank you!) I couldn’t resist this pink, short-sleeved version in the BCBG sale, prior to all my travels this summer.  There are some lovely pieces in the sale – if you want to get in early on metallics for fall how about this sequined pleated skirt or if you, like me, have a few weddings to attend this summer, what about this teal evening gown?

I took the dress you see me wearing here to Austin, Texas last month and wore it for a weekend brunch in the city.  The legendary Driskill Hotel had a great cafe / bakery that is perfect for wiling away a few hours (if you visit, try the ATX City Burger) and a walk around 6th Street revealed some of the more gritty bars and clubs that Austin is also known for.

I’ve written about pink before – there is most certainly something about this colour that gets my back up which is likely its association with a fluffy kind of ‘with-bows-on’ femininity*.  Having said that I like pink with black, also pink with gold too – I’d be interested to hear how you play with pink, Blog Reader…

Another question I have today concerns these high-low styles I am seeing everywhere right now.  I’ll not lie, at first I hated how this looked. The style grew on me (it’s a nice twist for skirts and dresses in particular this year), although I only own two pieces…  Who else has a high-low style, skirt, top, dress, other?

I’m now off to get-my-margarita-on for a Cinco de Mayo party.  My friend Lani, queen of cocktails, has the perfect recipe for a St Germain margarita here on her blog.  Pass the tequila…!  See you on Monday, Blog Reader! xo
