We Are Blushing: Tickled Pink

Go blush pink this Winter.

When pink comes to mind, so does Spring and budding flowers.

Winter, on the other hand, I think of dark reds and forest greens.

The thought of wearing pastels in the cold evenings does not come naturally.

But pink is my favourite colour, especially in a blushed tone, so why do I store it away for an entire season?

Dark shades such as black and burgundy are safe options, they allow us to blend into the depths of the frost and for me, the festive season.

Pink, however, is no longer just for young girls in their frills and tutu’s; it’s feminine, glamorous and undoubtedly womanly.

Pink adds personality and champions so many other colours; red’s and emerald greens are my personal go-to’s.

How To Wear It

Why Not Go Full On

A bold pink dress will make a statement and stand out from the dark hues. This one will turn heads, and this one is a pleaser.

Pair with red lipstick and rose gold accessories and the finished result is a luxuriously ravishing winter look.

If You’re Shy, Add A Hint

Statement earrings are a perfect way to add a pop of colour without making too much of an investment to the entire look.

These are incredibly elegant, and these are show-stopping.

Go with something over the top to pack a punch or add a subtler pair for a little-added hue.

Party On The Top

Blouses and sweaters are a good place to start if we’re thinking pink.

It’ll draw all the attention to the top and allow something more simple to be worn on the bottom.

This blouse is dazzling, and this sweater is captivating.

Pair with simple black pants for a charming yet practical evening look.

These velvet ones are ever so luxe.

Slip Into Some Pink Shoes

Pink shoes, similarly to earrings, add a splash of interest to an outfit and the right pair can be a conversation starter.

These are classic, and these will inspire.

Heels can pull a look together and add a little twinkle.

Wear pink, don’t save it til Spring.

One thing’s for sure when the moment calls, I’ll be tickled pink.

Vicki, you have totally inspired me to find some pink to wear ASAP! You’ve got me remembering that I used to have a great pink top, a structured knit, that I wore constantly. It wore out from all that, I think! I have a brand new pair of wide leg grey jeans that would be a great pairing with something pink, eh? Thanks as always for the inspiration!

I LOVE pink and especially blush pink. Cashmere sweaters, suede kitten slingbacks, a leather clutch…Blush works beautifully as an unexpected neutral.


It is so easy to forget about pink amid all the red and green of the season. Time to branch out!


I think it’s the perfect color at any time of the year and since I’ve been eyeing this gorgeous pink cashmere sweater for some time now…I’m off to buy it! You just sold me pink!
