Shades Of Blush
If there is one thing I can't resist it’s a rose gold shade of dusty pink (and a badass feminist top.)
Besides black, white and navy, there are a few color schemes I constantly gravitate towards. Bold orange-reds. Vibrant or muted yellows. Cool shades of pale blue. And vintage pink.
Of course, these are the shades that easily mix and match – constants in any wardrobe that fall into the “neutral” category. Then there are others that speak.
There are shades that can instantly lift a mood. When simply wearing a color makes you feel good, it better become a regular.
For the last couple years my absolute favorite hue to wear is blush pink. (I know, groundbreaking.) It’s become ever so popular among Millennials, but I love it because of this. Plus, it makes it easy to find. (Hence, the top, the watch, the beret and the shoes!)
When dressing, colors can represents an idea – or makes a statement on their own.
Dusty, pale-pink a symbol of romantic love. Maybe it’s a matter of opinion, but in color psychology pink is a sign of hope. It’s a positive, full of warmth and comfort. A color of feeling. Youthful. Feminine. It can read playful, cute, or charming even, but I have come to find it also represents a strength --a banner for the power of female.
My blush femme tee already feels like an old trusty friend. I remember growing up my favorite shirt was a sort of ugly üuber soft worn-out baseball tee of my dads. That's what this reminds me of. Even though this babe is new, she is a plain pink power player full of nostalgia. It’s my favorite on rotation right now. Women, you know what I’m saying. I am all about lifting up my fellow females. She is a shout out to my suffragists who fought before me for their right to vote, and advanced causes for birth control, civil rights and economic equality. The fight we are still fighting. We need gender equality, protection for immigrants, minorities, LGBTQ rights and access to women’s health services, and so much more.
Maybe it’s in my color, but it’s also in my persuasion.
Pink speaks softly. Clearly. Loudly. Strongly.
Speaking of pink, did you notice the subtle embroidery below my jeans pocket? I had to have these straight leg mom-jeans when I saw the hard-worn details. And raw-edge hems and if you get close enough you will know – girls bite back.
