Sweet Magnolias

Guys & Dolls,

How has it been? I am terribly sorry I haven't posted as frequently as usual. It's been way too long! So, this post will be related to incorporating a pretty, soft pink in outfits. Since pink is also Barbie's favorite colours, I will count this as my last BARBIE speedfeature!

Pink is my absolute fave colour. This summer, it will be extremely soft and girly to wear a light, more magnolia coloured pink. This post is also inspired by the magnolia tree next door. I took a few photos of it! My inspiration.



Inspired by sweet magnolias.


Now let's get to the outfits! (Worn by my lovely model & sister, Sydney - Styled by me)

This soft pink can be worn in a Bohemian look. When doing so, you can wear it with a pretty, loose, flowy dress. I paired this with a peace belt, vintage bangles, to add to the theme. On feet, some pretty leather thong sandals. Add an acoustic guitar, and you're set for jams on the beach! I absolutely love the pink - it adds a girly feel to the outfit.

My sis & I got creative and decided to pin the dress in the back, it creates a completely different look! Firstly, it is much shorter and it has an almost bustle inspired back. Poufs out, and makes the dress quite interesting! I would wear this with a jean jacket, and probably the sandals shown. Completely changes the silhouette of the dress!



The final look is a prepster look. With my favorite staple, the blazer, and some stripey shorts - this definitely looked like an outfit any stylish prefect would wear. A shot of pink made it cute, sweet and added to the simplicity. The collared shirt is a slight pink, and also added a thick ribbon, tied as a headband.

Hope you all are enjoying a fantastic weekend!
