The little pink dress, every woman should have one. Okay, maybe not every woman but every woman who loves pink. Right, so perhaps that was a dumb statement. Most women who love pink have tonnes of the stuff in their wardrobe, right?!

Pink-dress-9But considering how much I love pink (and you can probably tell from the pink overload on the lips, nails, dress AND scarf but hey… I can wear what I like), I don’t actually own that much of it. Not any more anyway. I used to have loads and then I gained a bit of weight and got rid of everything too small. And then I went and lost a load of weight, and got rid of everything that was too big. So my wardrobe shrunk by quite a bit. The funny thing was, when I lost the weight and chopped off all my hair, suddenly I could wear all these colours that I’d hated before. Navy blue was one of them. I really detested it on me, and then it became one of my favourite colours. Weird.

So my wardrobe has a lot more blues than pinks these days. Shame really, because I do rather like it on me. If you get the right shade of pink, I do think pink suits every woman though. This little number is my one and only little pink dress. I bought it from H&M a few years ago and I love wearing it in the cooler weather with thick black tights, black boots (I can’t even remember where I got these, but I’ve had them years) and a pretty scarf. This particular scarf is the newest in my collection. I was looking out for one that had pink and black in it (to go with my Converse!) and spotted this one in Desigual. I hadn’t wanted to pay full price at the time though so I skipped it and then, lo and behold, it was in the sale at 50% off. Needless to say I snapped it up! It’s cute, right?

    Wow…you’re living the life in the Algarve. One of my favourite/worst spots in the world. Me and my sister were run off the road by a sports car while riding mopeds there…oh so many years ago. They didn’t stop but some wonderful Portuguese people did. Many stitches and a few broken bones later we were bandaged up and tried to walk home. I will alway remember the super kind family, eating their supper on a terrace that saw us when we were trying to walk to our place from the hospital. The man left his dinner, went and got his car, picked me up in his arms (no joke!) and drove us home. It is still to this day one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me.

    Anyhow…just had to share that : ) I’ve wanted to go back for years but haven’t. I’ve heard it has changed lots and is now quite developed.

    This whole outfit is wonderful and it looks comfy. A++

    The scarf is a winner. Lucky you scoring it at that reduced price.

      OMG Suzanne that’s terrible! I can understand how the Algarve is one of your worst / favourite spots after experiencing that 🙁 I’ve lived here for almost 30 years now and it has changed enormously but generally, the people are lovely. The driving, however, hasn’t improved much. It’s still known for it’s accidents on the EN125 🙁
      Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting. You’re a star 🙂
