{lookbook} red + pink = love

It seemed easy enough, pair pink and red for a little Valentine's Day outfit love.
Pink is my favorite color so I thought I would find plenty of options in my closet.
(I'm not a huge fan of red but I knew I had some accessories)
So I started searching....and searching...and the only pink items I found were 
this old tshirt from the Gap and a faux pashmina scarf I got from a bazaar in Turkey.
What?!

I turned to my red + pink outfit from Friday's Fancies last week for inspiration. 
I pulled out my favorite Forever 21 striped blazer and got to styling. 
Pearls and a popped collar...really makes everything better.








Happy Valentine's Day my dears!
hope your day is filled with lots of chocolate and pink!

here's to love,
xx

Lovely outfit. I adore the pink and red together. I don't think I've worn pink and red together before but I've started to adore that colour combination. I think I will soon.
