I am obviously still not past Valentine's Day. And oddly enough, I used to absolutely abhor the color pink. When I was younger, I was such a tomboy and never wanted makeup or long hair or anything to do with any kind of girly-ness. I was content to be in an oversize t shirt with unbrushed hair and my colorful shell choker that my mom constantly begged me not to wear. It wasn't until late middle school that I finally decided to try makeup and clothes that fit me, but like MANY other middle school kids in the 90s, I turned into this weird mix of a scene kid with gothic tendencies but the attitude of a happy little 8th grader. It was a weird time.
Fast forward a few years later and I was finally starting to find my own sense of style...but still hated pink. I think at that point I just hated it off of principle since I felt like I was expected to like it as a girl. But in the past six months or so, I've fallen in love with the color. Especially right now with everything so dark and winter-ish and heavy, pink just feels like SPRING and happiness and warm days and spring break.
So I have no shame for my love of pink right now.
And neither should you.
Maybe if I start wearing a lot of pink it'll get warmer quicker? (One can dream.)
What're some things you've been lusting over lately? I'd love to know!
