My Style: Shabby Chic

August 11, 2010

I rarely wear pink.  It’s not that I don’t like pink, I just don’t like wearing it much.  I mostly wear black, blue or bold colours. My sister often encourages me to mix it up with a little pink, so when I spotted this cardigan, I thought of her.  Put a pink cardigan with a cream lacy top and a sky blue belt and you have shabby chic. 

Top: Target

Cardigan: Target

Pants: Purchased last year (2009)  from Target

Belt: $1 Vinnies Op Shop

Earrings: Eclectic Dreams

Boots: Half price from Mika Boutique on Main Street Caloundra. Also worn in Brown and Black, Feminine and Casual Elegance

What I love most: The Foley China teacup.  It was my mums. And I like the top too: it’s pretty.

Tip: If you need some inspiration for an outfit, think of a decor theme and do a Google image search. I was thinking Shabby Chic.  Here’s some themes you may like to use.

Another tip: Don’t be afraid to mix the old with the new.  The top and cardigan are new, the pants are last season and the belt is vintage.  I love what Drew Barrymore wore to the Nylon Magazine/Express party this week in Los Angeles. Her Op Shop dress was $25 (US)  and  the Yves Saint Laurent “Tribute” pumps were $760 (US).  That’s really mixing it up isn’t it?

You should wear more pink, it really suits you Kelly! I also love twin sets any colour, they are coming back into fashion.

Loving the pink cardy. It looks great on you :) I love Shabby Chic. I’m trying to convince my hubby to let me redecorate our bedroom but for some reason, he won’t let me ;)

hehe… I don’t think my husband would let me put a lot of pink in our room either. Party poopers.

Thanks K. I’m going to try and balance out my wardrobe a little. Can’t wait to see some of your photos. It’s been a while.

Cute outfit! The cardigan is gorgeous. I wear mostly black, grey and red and navy. I love pink too – i usually wear it in summer.

Lovely summer colour isn’t it. It just says “fresh” and “pretty”
