:: Pink and Red ::

As an almost Valentine’s Day baby, pink and red have always been my colors. I never cared that it was a “Hallmark Holidays,” because it was a double celebration for me! There was always a party at school with crafts, cupcakes, and Valentine’s Cards. This meant we were allowed to break out the glitter (some years….) and Elmer’s Glue the life out of that paper sack, until nothing more could fit on the front. Always craving another opportunity to be creative, this was a shining moment in my year. I obviously loved receiving candy necklaces and like anyone else, picking out the best tasting Candy Hearts (clearly not the white and green ones – ew).

Plus, this holiday celebrates finding your one twue wuv. From a very early age, I envisioned exactly what this stranger would be like – a man with Fred Astaire’s feet and George Clooney’s charm, of course. After growing up with crushes on men like Rhett Butler, Cary Grant and the occasional character from All My Children, anyone would have their work cut out for them!

While this time of year is the only acceptable time for some to watch rom com’s and don the pink/red combination, that is an everyday occasion for me! This color blocked, borderline tone-on-tone look is a definite favorite. If pink and red year-round is wrong, then I’ll just NEVER be right!

Happy Valentine’s Day – especially to my favorite photographer!
