Do you remember the movie Pretty in Pink? Maybe you’re too young, or too old to remember, but for girls growing up in the 1980s, Molly Ringwald‘s coming of age movies were woven into the fabric of our own adolescence.
Today, when I think pink, I’m almost always reminded of Molly Ringwald’s movie and how she made a herself a prom dress from something she thrifted. But with two young boys in the house I don’t often get to indulge pink fantasies. This year I’m in the mood for pink and Easter seems like the perfect opportunity to express that. The color’s optimistic and feminine qualities are speaking to me. The thing with pink is it can easily go too sweet or too girly, so I find that it’s a question of choosing just the right pink, and keeping it as a pop of color rather than covering your whole house in pink. In the case of my Pretty in Pink Easter Brunch mood board, the pink is balanced out by a lot of white and complementary greens and greys. This way it stays feminine, but with a sophisticate touch. Can you even believe Easter is just around the corner? Where does time fly?
