Miu Miu | Cha Cha Matcha

The trendiest color of the year

With a name like The Fashion Barbie, the color pink just comes with the territory. When I was little I would only wear pink, and it's not because some weird idea of traditional gendering, it's because I freakin' loved pink. And I still do! But sometimes I feel like I have to downplay my pink obsession because it's looked down upon for being too girly and feminine, and some people see girly as being superficial and vapid, which like, why can't I be a luxury-loving superficial girl and be good at calculus? Ugh, if only I wasn't so in love with fashion; then I would have become the Elle Woods of engineering...

Anyway, recently pink has become very trendy again, and that is ay-okay with me! It seems like the most Instagrammable restaurants and brands have one thing in common: pink! It's a very particular shade, a light blush that conjures up images of crushed velvet and clouds at sunrise, and it's everywhere. Fashionista recently published an article on the phenomenon, and once I read it, I was like, "OMG, this is so true!"

Think about it: Acne has those gorgeous shopping bags; Glossier has made pink undeniably chic, and Alfred Tea Room and Cha Cha Matcha have transformed the pink and green color combo from Southern prep staple to city girl cool. All the of-the-moment brands are jumping on the 'tumblr pink' bandwagon.

Even I'm doing it! I just updated my blog header to make it sparkly and baby pink, and I take a minimum of 30 pictures every time I stop by Alfred Tea. I'm obsessed, and there's no denying it, so let's all just hop on board and embrace this rose-colored view of life.

What are your thoughts on the trendy color?


  1. I love pink always have . . . When I was in high school I think my sophomore and junior year everything i owned was pink. Even though I went to private school and had to wear a uniform my nails, my jewelry PINK! I also feel sometimes we have to downplay our obsession because people will think we are dumb blondes/brunettes who know nothing but "Like Clothes and stuff" hahah Glad it's now totally acceptable not that I really cared anyway <3
