Thrift Style Thursday - Pretty in Pink

When Carissa from Carissa Knits suggested pink tones for this week's Thrift Style Thursday, I immediately thought of this skirt.  It's one of my favorite thrifted items of the last year, it's comfy and fun and I just knew I'd be wearing it today!

I'm pretty much a girly girl, I will fully admit to enjoying pink.  I am probably a bigger fan of darker pinks and even more salmon and peach, but I do like pink.  I have talked here before about how I resisted pink for awhile, I chose a very pink room for myself when I was young and after living with that for so long I shied away from pink for quite awhile in my early 20's - but I have embraced it again, which is a good thing considering I have a VERY pink bathroom in my house!

People were kind of teasing me when we first learned that Oliver was a boy - "you're such a girl, how will you ever raise a boy?" But honestly, I don't mind.  I'm a pretty good boy mom and even if I had a daughter, I don't know that I'd be forcing pink and flowers and butterflies on her.  And hey, one of Oliver's favorite characters in the world is a pink fairy named Abby, so I'm not totally missing out on that experience anyway!

Be sure to check out how the other ladies are styling themselves in pink at their blogs below!  The center box takes you to our Facebook page and you can follow links from there as well, especially for some of our newer members!
