Happy in pink



This week I’m happy in pink! Really enjoying the sunny weather this long weekend offered, I got my pink fresh coat out and made myself the trendiest shoes of the season, for an ‘almost feels like summer’ look.

I’m always happy in pink. I mean, if you exclude my dark early teenage years, in which I only dressed black, or red very occasionally, pink for me can be a colour for any day and any season. I just like it and it makes me happy. Last year I got this coat at the end of spring and I really don’t regret it. As usual, it is from Benetton, for the great fit and clean lines I love, while keeping such a cute feeling to it. This coat can also be both classy and playful, so you can wear it for more formal occasions, or with a nice summer dress. The good news is that it is available again and the dark blue version has now been added to my wish list ;)

The rest of the look is just a very classic combination of black trousers and a white top. The interesting details are on my lace up flats. Lace-up shoes are really the trendiest shoe this season! I will make you a selection of my favourite ones later this week, so stay tuned. These ones where a very quick DIY project, that I will share with you soon. I think it worked out very well and I saved some money by adding the laces myself.

Hope you liked this look! Have a great week, and don’t forget to share your thoughts with us by leaving a comment below!

  1. I love pink so I don´t need to express my opinion about this jacket.. :P We already discussed this, but I also agree that Beneton has amazing jackets, with perfect lines. This jacket makes your outfit! Really classy! :) Also, the lace-up shoes you made (I mean not the shoes itself but the laces you add) look great Cátia and they look just as the ones bought in the stores, but better, BECAUSE THEY WERE MADE BY YOU!!.

    1. Thank you Alexandra!
      As you can imagine this coat came home with me mostly because it is pink! But because it has such nice cut and is so simple, it is a very acceptable to any occasion kind of pink, and so absolutely worth the money because I know I’ll wear it very often.
