Ok, Mean Girls is a fantastic movie but as you become more *ahem* mature, how easy is it to wear pink?
I would say that I’m not a particularly ‘girlie’ girl but I do like wearing a bit of pink in moderation. Lets be honest, it is the most feminine colour and its always nice as a woman to feel pretty – that doesnt stop when you’re over 40. Actually, the need to feel pretty is probably even stronger (thanks magazine photoshopping/the worlds love of youth/women becoming invisible after a certain age etc) One of the ways I ‘do’ pink is by wearing the colour in a less girlie way such as the pink jeans I have on today.
I have styled these pink jeans from F&F at Tesco with a cute cropped boxy top from Primark and some pretty flats from New Looks teen range 915. These rolled up jeans are so versatile and easy to wear and for sizing I am wearing a 12 but they are available in sizes 8-20. Being petite I have just rolled them up at bit more than they were when I bought them.
The cropped top is pretty with its print but not overpowering but I have kept jewellery to a minimum with just a couple of bracelets and a simple chain necklace.
A skinny white belt and white caged shoes complete the look and keep this pink look from feeling too Barbie.
So, what do you think – love it or hate it? Whatever your age and regardless of what day of the week it is – are you ready to wear pink?

You’ve got to love a jumpsuit. Its the easiest thing to wear (well, apart from if youre rushing to the loo!).
A patterned version can be slightly unflattering if you are curvy so I pick ones that pull in at the waist or wear a belt with them.
I also like this one as its buttoned up so you can wear it shirt-like or undone with a vest or t-shirt underneath as I have today.
I am wearing a Primark ‘pyjama’ style jumpsuit in size 12. I have had to shorten it (being 5’2″ is such fun) but apart from that it is as bought. Underneath I have a white t-shirt and have co-ordinated it with white shoes. If it was evening, heels would look great but this is a working/running around after kids day!
You’ll probably see me in quite a few jumpsuits over the summer so keep an eye on my blog. Do you love romping around in them too?

Yesterday I went to Bluewater shopping centre for a bit of quality time with my boyfriend. We went shopping, had a Nandos and then a date night at the cinema…it was perfect
Of course I had to look the part so I went for a Primark playsuit, black tights and Next ankle boots. I am a petite 5’2″ and since losing a lot of weight, find playsuits really work for my frame. I love this one as even though it has quite a busy print with its black collar and a black belt I added, it looks really smart. Its has an elasticated waist so doesn’t swamp me and I also love anything with pockets too!
I wore next leather ankle boots to keep the look cool rather than too dressy as I was wearing this mainly in the daytime.
For my hair and make up I kept it simple with a few flicks in my straightened hair and grey eye shadow and neutral lipstick.
