When I was in middle school, I would have told you that pink and green were my favorite colors. Green (obviously) stuck, but pink did not. When I started playing basketball in high school I decided that pink was too prissy for me and I have hardly worn it since. However, this shirt I can handle. The pink is subtle and I love how feminine it is.

I must also acknowledge that this is the first time I am baring my legs this year. Even though it hit 70 degrees yesterday, it still feels a little strange. Probably because when I showed my husband this outfit, he looked at me kind of strangely and said "are you wearing white tights?" Um, no, those are my legs. It's been too long, sun, it's been too long.

Green Week Link up is after the break!

  1. That's a super cute blouse. The soft dusky pink goes so well with the forest green skirt too, I never would've thought of pairing them together!

  2. Ohh 70s! How lucky! I think we all had a time when we were obsessed with pink, and then that time passed. But I'll still wear it once in a while.
    Love your knot ring!

  3. Oh husbands! Sometimes they just need to think an extra second before speaking. I'm in the same boat with super white legs, but I don't care because I'm just so happy to have a little warmth (as I look out at the snow again!). I think pink and green are my current favorite colors. When I was younger, I was a total tomboy, but then I realized that I didn't actually like being a tomboy and it was probably just because I was the only girl in the neighborhood. So now I'm pretty "girly" when it comes to things.

  6. Haha I laughed about the white tights. My legs are definitely looking like they are donning white tights right now. But it's still too cold to show them here! I really like pink and green together, and this blouse is so pretty!

  7. I really like this color combination! At least your legs are a healthy, natural color. When I was younger (and dumber) I used to indoor tan (but never to the point of being orange). Now when I see my students with tan legs during this time of year, I just want to go Mom on them and lecture them on the hazards of tanning. On a separate note, you look really cute with a side braid, and I really like the earrings you chose. I've never thought of wearing bigger earrings when I sport a braid. What a great idea!

  9. I love that color pink on you! It's such a nice shade. Your legs look fine, it really doesn't look like you are wearing tights or too pale! I'd rather be pale than be caught tanning!

  11. I totally agree, blush pink is so flattering and "wearable" on everyone! You look beautiful!

    xo Always, Abby

  12. These two colors are like peanut butter and jelly! The perfect mix! Also your green skirt is such a pretty shade of green. I feel your pain about the white legs. My legs are so white people are going to need sunglasses!

  13. ah, you look so prett-ay! We can add "white legs" to our long torso support group. You rock those legs though! :)

  14. Oh, he just said that to get a rise out of you! Your legs aren't white. That's funny though. I really like this combo of blush pink and hunter green. Great combo!

  15. Funny but not funny. :-) I think that shade of pink is considered Blush. Cute pics!

  18. I love the green and pink together! That is so something my husband would say! Two weeks ago it was, "you look like a kindergartner." Last month it was, "You look like Halloween!" Gotta love the funny compliments. : )

    Now I want to recreate this color combo! I have a skirt and top almost exactly like that. I must try it to see if it works in a bohemian style. When I do I will link back to you! Thanks for the idea!

  19. has anyone ever mentioned you look a bit like lady mary from downtown? maybe it's just the colors/tones in these photos? either way, classic elegance :)

  20. Green is my favorite color too! I even had the walls in my room painted green as a kid :) Right now my favorite shade of green is emerald - it makes my heart skip a beat whenever I see gorgeous clothes in this color. That skirt is beautiful!

  21. That is a gorgeous blouse! And I am loving all of this green! It is such an underused color!! The white tights comment sounds like something my hubby would say too;) Blessings! Susan

  22. I laughed out loud at "Are you wearing white tights?" At this point my husband would probably ask me the same thing but I won't be baring my legs yet...

  23. Love these colors together! I think I'm still stuck on "color of the year" emerald from last year. (Can't really get into radiant orchid.) And I am so looking forward to getting some sun this spring and summer! I recently got a haircut, and everyone thinks my hair is darker, too - I'm realizing I'm just pale :)

  24. I learned a lot time ago to call myself "fair" while everyone else was calling me white. Rock it girl! Fair is lovely too ;)
    Also... brr. Way too cold for naked calves here!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha. That white tights comments made me giggle. That's so totally me too!

  28. One of your best outfit, Ashley! And the braid suits you!

  29. I love your husbands white tights comment. Bless! I am very pale, all year round, in a mixed race family! I call it porcelain and I am owning it/rocking it/working it/whatever expression embarrasses the kids the most!

  30. Oooh, that pink blouse is GORGEOUS. I've been SUPER into that pale pinky/blush color lately. It's just so elegant - and I love how it looks with other colors and most neutrals, too.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
