Story time: I bought a pale pink dress from ASOS in the summer and when it arrived I loved it. But, I put it on and basically turned invisible – my skin just blended in to the dress and I sent my dress back in anger and I didn’t look back (Oasis banter). I got in a huge grump about my pale skin and how pretty pink things didn’t suit me. This was the dress in question if you’re wondering.
After the pale pink disaster I was determined to find a way to wear pink without looking washed out, and I’ve seen so many pieces coming into the high street shops in a gorgeous dusky pink colour. It’s perfect for all skin tones but especially white lil’ bunnies like me who need all the help they can get in the tan region.
When I saw this dusky pink top on ASOS I had to have it – I thought the 3/4 length sleeves would be great for smart occasions and would also work well this Autumn (even though it’s currently nearly 30 degrees outside, eh). I treated myself to a new Topshop bag last week too which had a gorgeous dusky pink suede patch on it, gotta love matching your clothes and accessories!
The top went perfectly with my new monochrome culottes which are from Zaful – they’re the comfiest culottes I think I’ve ever owned (as well as the ones in this post) and I’m continuing my culotte love until the snow comes this Winter, I love them SO much!

I never used to consider myself as a pink girl but I definitely need to take the plunge more often. I’m desperate for either a pink bomber jacket or a suede/leather jacket (or… both) and they’re definitely on my to-buy list.
Let me know what you think of dusky pink and whether you love or hate the trend!
