Shades of Pink

Rarely do I rant about my clothes, but I hate trousers. They are the most difficult item of clothing to fit my body. I am 5'11" (without heels), so length is always a problem. To add to my frustration, my body has changed in the last year and I have packed more muscle onto my already athletic frame. I have a lot of trousers hanging in my closet, but few that I am happy with once I put them on. My work schedule today dictated that my legs be covered (dress code), so I decided to pair my brown trouser with pink; one of my favorite color combinations.

Pink is one of my favorite colors to wear during spring. The color reminds me of new spring flowers I have had this pink tank for several years, but I have never worn it. I have put it on a few times, but changed my mind and then changed my top. The neckline is very low, so it seems inappropriate for work. Today I solved that problem by layering with another cami. I dont know why I didn't think of that before. The mutiple shades of pink in the bust are picked up in the cardi, bracelet and shoes.

Brown cami - Mossimo
Pink tank and cardi - Express
Brown trousers - The Limited
Silver "S" necklace - Tiffany & Co. (gift from my husband)
Siver and pink necklace - Lia Sophia
Pink wooden bangle - Bitten by SJP
Pink and tapestry platform sandals - Kenzie
