Hot pink isn’t on everyone’s list of easy colors to wear. It can make a rosy complexion look even rosier, and overwhelm fair skin. Well, I have both those things, and I love wearing hot pink, and I only just found that out in my 61st year. So don’t be timid about trying a new/bold color: our tastes change, our skin changes, and a color we once ruled out can become a best friend.

This is a run around town and have dinner out with my husband look. The black trousers (similar) are cropped and cool, thrifted in NYC and by AllSaints. I love the loose fit and the pockets. Print blouse (sim) was also thrifted, as well as the J. Crew cashmere cardigan.
I like to wear cropped pants with oxfords (sim) – Sandy calls it an “Annie Hall” look, and that’s a compliment to me! A feminine pink vintage bracelet (sim), gifted by a dear friend, finished the outfit. And the great Ellen Wille hair – it can take a brisk wind.

That is such a cool look – the hot pink cardigan is simply ace and suits you so well. You look great!
Pairing pink with those burgundy oxfords is inspired! Love the color combination!
Glad you tried the hot pink , it suits you beautifully . I also must agree , love your Annie Hall vibe with the crop pants and brogues. Thank you for hosting.
this is a very nice outfit
Pink really suits you Patti! The cardigan looks lovely with the floral print top underneath. I’ve just been going through my clothes and found a silk top in hot pink that I bought on eBay ages ago…just in time for Spring! Hope you have a great week 🙂
Love the cardi! Pink is so girly you can never go wrong 🙂
That hot pink is just the perfect color for you Patti. Love it xxx. There is just something about that color <3 Thanks for hosting and wishing you a fabulous week. Sabina
OMWord, can I have your oxfords? Pretty please. Such burgundy goodness on your feet.
I think that hot pink and also a bright turquoise are universally complimentary to every complexion! You are no exception. I think your little feline buddy likes it too; he seems to have moved in closer to you! =-)
I’m vascilating on this style of cropped pants. I know they’re the trendy look but I’m not sure that length is flattering on ever body type. You look great in them Patti.
I’d love to know more about the hair look!! I followed the link in your post. Beautiful product.
Wow those All Saints pants are a great find Patti. You must have a great thrifting eye. I think I love your hair the most in this post. I would kill for your beautiful curly hair, mine is bone straight. Thank you for hosting.
I think the hot pink looks great on you. It’s good to be open to trying new things no matter what our age. I stayed away from pink for most of my adulthood, but now I have a hot pink winter coat that I love, and always get compliments on, such is the power of PINK!
Snap! I love this hot pink and love that I’m sporting hot pink too this week – great minds! I think crops and Oxfords are dreamy and would go with the Annie Hall comment too. Thanks so much for the link up party again x
It’s amazing that as much as I love pink I don’t have a lot in my closet! I am working on it though. I love your pink sweater! As always I think I can smell the ocean when I look at your pictures.
Hey Patti! I’m not really a pink girl, only having a couple of items, but I love this hot pink! And really I’m loving the shoes the most. Thanks for hosting the link-up as always! And reminding me as always!
Patti! Your hair is looking FAB!
I’m hoping Pao catches how I deployed the purse that she gave me at the 07/2015 VBC meetup, since she isn’t on either Instagram nor Facebook, where my link look appeared. I use it for all my Otis teaching digital gear and the unique clasp allowed me to drape it around my neck. I felt ridiculous but had my music while I scanned 23 Oscar sketches in the school’s computer lab. (Lots of jumping up and down when scanning and I had no breast pocket).
I love wearing pink! You do look great in it! And now it is so popular again! Very springy too! 🙂
I love you in bright pink.
Never say never – I used to avoid pink like the plague now I love it! xxx
I love a bright pink Patti! It looks great on you with the navy top and black pants. I am doing some “thrifting” online on poshmark. It can be gratifying.
Have a wonderful week!
Love the cropped pant, such a laid back and cool look. Another amazing and thrifted look!
Looking so fresh and pretty in this pink Patty! Definitely it is your color!
I love the Annie Hall look! And that pink looks fab on you 🙂
It is very Annie-Hall-ish, Patti. And it is fabulous! I love it. And I may need to copy it!
I used to love to wear hot pink, but I haven’t tried it again in a long time.
I love all things pink and this sweater is no exception; such a pretty shade. And it is super pretty on you, glad you gave it a shot!
I love your hair so much.
Thank you for your fun, fabulous lik up, my dear Patti
I have an almost identical cardigan, Patti! I love that shade and it looks great on you. There’s a pink for everyone and I’m glad to see it’s firmly in fashion this spring.
If you love it wear it anyway! You look fabulous. I am not ‘supposed’ to wear hot pink either with my rosy cheeks and reddish hair. Doesn’t stop me 😉 x
You look fabulous in hot pink, Patti! The entire look is great.
Thanks for the link up & have a wonderful week!
Hello gorgeous lady. Love you in hot pink!
I love that hot pink on you. I avoided it for a long time too, and now I love it. Ch-ch-ch-changes.
Bright pink is the best color on you Patti!! Look at how it livens up your face and really stands out!!
I should send this to my mother—she just bought a pair of ankle pants—and them made them longer! I told her that they look great as the original length—she wasn’t buying it!!
Love the color & the hair – I want both for my birthday!!
Thank you for hosting us each week – it is always fun!
I do agree you look splendid in bold bright pink.
As long as we’re always open to learning we will never grow old. (she says…hopefully!)
The hot pink looks super pretty on you, Patti!
You look so pretty in hot pink!
Oh, hot pink!!! My favourite colour! And it can look fantastic with pale skin, and it’s so kind to our middle-aged faces, making us look rosy and sweet. You look fabulous, and of course you can wear hot pink.
You wear that hot pink colour beautifully, Patti! xx
You look great in pink, Patti! Such a great color for you…thanks for the link up! Happy March!
