summer/fall color trends: cabaret and pink flambe

I don't wear a lot of pink; especially hot pink.  I think I grew up associating it with blonde Barbie types.  However, every girl on this inspiration board is a brunette, so maybe it's time I rethink that aversion.  I would be happy to add the zebra top, bar necklace, or braided cross-back tank to my wardrobe!  Raspberry pink will stay strong for fall - Pantone calls the latest version Pink Flambe and it's just a bit more muted than summer's Cabaret - think the J. Crew patent leather belt below as opposed to the Tippi sweater.

What color scares you the most, wardrobe wise?


  1. As I've got older I prefer pink and am wearing more of it. I'd like to say I've got a balance of colours. Alot of them strong colours like; pink, Navy Blue, Red, Black

    1. I love doing my Pantone series, but you sure wouldn't know it looking at my closet- it's a sea of neutrals, purple, and blue. I need to introduce more color and that's going to be one of my goals when I shop for fall clothes!
