Pretty in Pink J. Crew Lookbook








I love the movie “Pretty in Pink” and recently watched it again on TV.  While walking through J. Crew, I saw these neon pink shorts and they reminded me of the 80’s movie and made me smile.  To balance out my bright neon shorts I knew I wanted a neutral top and found this lightweight open weave cotton linen sweater also at J. Crew.  Since both the top and bottom are pretty classic shapes, I paired the outfit with my Barbie Mui Mui shoes, my own jewelry, and my Chanel Mademoiselle bag.  I refer to my shoes as my Barbie shoes because they remind me of my favorite toy from childhood and don’t they look like Barbie would have them?

I love to shop at J. Crew for basics in my closet.  My favorites there are typically sweaters, especially cardigans.  They layer and hold up well, and J. Crew does a wonderful job with the little details, even on the simplest silhouettes.  The details I love in my outfit:  the shorts I am wearing look garment dyed and the sweater’s open weave makes it light enough to wear for the summer.  The rib on the neck and waist is also well done and doesn’t look stretched out when worn.


Summerlong J. Crew Sweater

 They don’t have the white color online, but you can easily call J. Crew or go to a nearby store and they should have it.   The pink color would look cute with the shorts too and reminds me of cotton candy.  If your pairing it with the pink shorts, I would wear simple strappy shoes or flats.  Another sweater option is the Tippi Sweater and it comes in 12 colors online including white!  

3″ Chino Shorts

Available in 11 colors online.  I love shorter shorts, but these are also available in the 5″ and the 7″ China Short in the same color.  A bunch of colors in the various lengths are on sale right now, I like the fit of my shorts so much I am going to order another color myself. 

Michael Michael Kors Strappy Metallic Sandals

I got my shoes a couple of years ago, but here are some options I would also wear with this outfit.  I love the gold metallic color of this sandal and the price at $150 is affordable.  If I wore these shoes with my outfit, I would switch out the silver necklace with gold bracelets and a small clutch for my bag.  

If you love the color of my shoe, Diane von Furstenberg has this great shoe that comes in pink and turquoise blue, on sale right now for $187.  

Happy shopping!  Let me know what you think about the bigger images, the outfit, or any comments you have.  And remember if you like reading my blog don’t forget to like my facebook page and/or follow me on google connect or bloglovin.  Thank you to the positive feedback I have received!
