Melted bubblegum sherbert

I don't really own a ton of colourful clothes.  I've been slowly working on that collection though.  My closet has typically been limited to colourful cardigans and a few shirts to liven up the mundane routine of jeans or black slacks.  Which is why I was ecstatic to have found a pair of bright pink shorts.  Colour-blocking with actual colours?  Unheard of!

I went full-out on the colour, if I do say so myself.  I considered pink lipstick, but that might be pushing it a bit. I say this look reminds me of melted bubblegum sherbert (with a ripple of lemon), but that's just for folks who don't know what Superkid from Laura Secord is.  Y'know...that colourful ice cream from our childhood?


What I'm wearing:
-Yellow cardigan from mom's closet
-Turqoise tank top from Charlotte Russe
-Pink shorts from Forever 21
-Tan wedges from Joe Fresh
-Yellow sunnies from Le Chateau
-Necklace from frAsh



Oh hey, I think I'll start using my lookbook hype button now too. Click it. You know you want to. And while you're at it, might as well hype my past looks!

  1. LOVE the colors!! Those pink shorts are absolutely fab. :) Also loving the yellow sunnies and the yellow cardigan. Yellow is generally a difficult color for me but you pull it off gorgeously.

    And I do plan on using my buyer badge!! :P Can't wait, hope the events are great.

  8. Great color-block girl! Love it! Too funny about you thinking the addition of pink lipstick would be too much! I think it would have been great with this, but I love the look as is too!
