Hello June — Pink Mandarin / Band Collar
Can you believe it's June already?! It's almost summer and I'm too excited, not only because my birthday is coming up in July, I'll be shooting the bulk of my weddings, AND I'll get to work with a new class of amazing seniors — it's because for the first time in so long I'm getting to play around and develop with my personal style.
Over the course of the last year, I've changed my eating habits and as a result... I've lost 30 pounds. It's crazy you can lose so much weight by simply changing up what you eat. I'm so happy because I'm able to shop a few more places because I can actually fit the sizes they carry. Quite honestly, it's been amazing... well, not for my pockets because if I see it and I like... I own it. 😂 Like I just can't say no. I guess that isn't a bad thing because with the weight loss, I had to get rid of almost all of my clothes (well... actually, I sold them to Plato's Closet)... but I've had to get a whole new wardrobe basically — and then some.
I've added so many shirts that I want to wear like everyday, that includes this pink band collar shirt from Aeropostale. I ordered a size down from what I usually wear and was shocked when I tried it on and realized I needed a smaller size, I'm still getting used to being a little smaller. I actually liked the oversized / longline look so I thugged it out and kept it. I paired it with my favorite light denim skinny Levi's and my favorite hat from H&M's Coachella Collection.
I loved the light pink + denim color combination, it felt so bold and subtle at the same time. It actually felt like summer and I can't wait to experiment even more over the season. I'm so far from my ideal weight so I won't be walking around showing my future 6 pack yet, but it'll be fun to see what the summer brings.
What are some of your favorite summer color combinations?
