My love/hate relationship with pink

My love/hate relationship with pink


Wait, what?! 2 posts in 1 week? I must be crazy, right 😉

And for those of you wondering why my outfit has (almost) no pink in it, that’s exactly what I wanted to talk about today: my everlasting love/hate relationship with pink. As far as I remember I always had a thing for colors, pink being one of my faves. To me the color is happy, but bold, feminine, but cool. It’s easy to combine with a lot of colors and can add just that bit of fun to your outfit.

I remember wearing the color a lot as a child, one of my most prized possessions was a bright pink pair of shoes, with yellow and green flowers on it and the laces were tied together with see-through butterflies. Sounds crazy, right?! Anyone who will be able to tell me what brand these shoes were gets bonus points 😉

Over the years the color kept reappearing in my wardrobe, as a student I wore mostly black, but I did have the coolest – mostly pink – sneaker collection.  If you go through the archives of this blog you’ll see that my style has always been evolving and I guess the best way to describe it is eclectic. But for some reason the past years pink has become very present in my style. And I blame Instagram for that! I noticed so many of you enjoyed my pink outfits, that I wanted to be a “good blogger” and give you more of what you like – more pink outfits and pink pictures. But now it has come to the point that people see me as “the pink girl” or ask me if I would wear anything that isn’t pink. Followers, brands, pr agencies and even my boyfriend keep sending me things (physically or via DM) they think I would like just because it’s pink.

And then I realized I may have taken it a little too far, because guess what, pink doesn’t define me! Yes, I love pink, pink is beautiful, but I also love wearing other colors. And I definitely don’t like anything that is pink. Pink done the right way can be cool, but the wrong way it turns out to be cheap and tacky – aka the “hate” part of my love/hate relationship with the color. Words I wouldn’t really like to describe myself with – and to be honest, who would 😉

So believe it or not, pink is giving me mixed feelings. This doesn’t mean I’ll stop wearing pink, but it does mean I’ll give other colours a chance and I’ll show you more of the other outfits I’m wearing as well, so you’ll know I’m not someone with a weird type of OCD, but actually a real girl who enjoys fashion.

So how about you, do you like wearing pink?
