An Ode to Millennial Pink

Oh millennial pink, how I've tried and tried to resist your allure. Your soft, happy hue, your maddeningly neutral, "go-with-everything" tone. Evidently, it was to no avail. I'm converted. My name is Chloë, I'm a millennial (ugh) and I love pink. The youths have won. Take me to your leader!

So you may already be sick of all my pink if you are a casual peruser of my Instagram... or, it's entirely possible you've missed all of my posts due to the terrible Instagram algorithm of engagement death. But I digress. My point is that the pink has been a slow burn that has now combusted into full-blown buy-in. Exhibit One: a fully pink suit that I most definitely wear to work. The jacket alone is a fantastic piece that (surprise!) goes with everything. Zara FTW, once again. 

More exhibits here of pink being generally pretty great... I also had the opportunity recently to pull some pieces from Ever New's spring collection, and got to play around with a beautiful pink trench coat and a shimmery midi skirt, also pink. Borrowing pieces is new to me, but it was a really cool thing to try (though this instance was quite the saga due to unforeseen circumstances!).
