Fashion Friday/Pink Saturday

Welcome to a Fashion Friday and Pink Saturday combination! A couple weeks ago Deb at Deb's Country Kisses began hosting Fashion Friday. Since I have a lot of pink clothing, I decided to combine it with Pink Saturday which is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Also, this Monday I'll be participating in Blue Monday hosted by Sally at Smiling Sally.

Edited to add: For the most hilarious Pink Saturday post I have ever seen, you should really check out The Stone Rabbit. Oh my gosh, I laughed so hard I nearly peed myself! She has the funniest Pink Saturday posts!

This is one of my favorite pink dress blouses for work. I forgot to take a pic of the cream colored linen skirt with pink roses that I wear with it! Bought it at Cato's.

Here is my absolute favorite dress shirt. I had my eye on it at CJ Banks, but I can't afford their stuff full price, so as soon as I saw it on the clearance rack, I snatched it up! The pink shell was on clearance at Fashion Bug for $6.
Here is some detail. I love these flowers! I wear this with olive dress slacks.
Here is another CJ Banks item. I might actually have paid full price because I liked it so much. I love the embroidery! The pink shell is another one from Fashion Bug.
See the pretty detail? This is what sold me on the jacket. I like to wear this with a pink tank and white pants.

Here is a deeper pink shirt that I got at a deep discount store. I bought the scarf at a craft fair. I love to wear this with jeans.
More cute detail.
So what do I wear with pink clothing? Pink jewelry, of course! The earrings in the first pic are my favorite and I wear them all the time.

I found the brooch at a rummage sale for $4.
My daughter has heard about Fashion Friday and Pink Saturday and wanted to get in on the fun! Here she is in her new pink shirt, vogueing for the camera. She is wearing pink glitter flip flops.

I remember back in the day when she was a pretty little pink baby! Here she is in a sweet little pink dress against a background of pink roses. I think she's around 6 months old in this picture. I'm 22 here. What a spring chicken!
I guess there was another time in my life that I liked pink! This is my senior pic at age 17. Was I ever that young? lol
What a blast from the past!

I have a lot more pink clothes, but this post would go on forever if I showed them all. I tried to model a couple of these outfits, but when I asked my sons to play photographer, one was asleep, and the other couldn't be bothered while playing Minesweeper. Oh well, at least my daughter got to model!

Have a great weekend!

I like your favorite shirt and think that a moss green pair of slacks would look great with it.

Looking forward to Blue Monday.

Wow, lots of fun things to wear! LOVE that denim jacket and those gorgeous earrings.
You wouldn't mind sending them my way, would you?
LOL!
Enjoyed your Pink Saturday!
If you can't find it in your heart to send me that jacket and earrings, might you allow me an afternoon on your deck enjoying the Fall weather and watching the River?
GORGEOUS, all of it!

Nikki via The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

Great stuff! I like the two cjbanks outfits the best too. They really do have nice stuff.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Kady. I loved seeing the pictures of you and your daughter.

Hot pink is one of my favorite colors to wear. You have so many pretty pink things.

Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) said...

Hi Kady,
Love your pink post and your daughter is too cute! :-) Love her mugging for the camera. You and I must be about the same age because I have the same long, straight, parted-down-the-middle, hair style in the pics of me at that age. :-) Susan
P.S. Thanks for stopping by my pink post today and thanks for all the sweet wonderful comments you leave from time to time! :-) Susan

Patricia said...

Beautiful Pinks! Happy Pink Saturday.

Anne Fannie said...

Picket said...

Hey girl....great post...I love that blue jean jacket! The great thing about those is that you can dress them up as fancy as you want or dress them down as casual as you want...they are perfect for all things. Thanks for coming by and taking a peek at my black mantel...I am so glad I painted it...it just fits so good with all my country things. Take care girl & have a beautiful Sunday!

KatCollects said...

Bridget said...

Kady, I hope you are having a good weekend. I have a new post you need to come see. You have a starring role in it! : ) B.

sweetmemorymakingmom said...

Kady, Love your pink cloths and jewelry. Nothing better than a pink shirt! I clicked the pink ribbon button. I have one on my blog too, but I figured I would click it on yours. Love the gift! I look forward to seeing more of your pink pretties. hugs, Ellen

Bridget said...

Hi Kady, You are more than welcome to post those pictures. If you need me to email the files to you, let me know. I'm glad you liked them. I agree the magazine cover is great. I couldn't believe when I popped your face on there how good you look as a blonde. That doesn't work as well for everyone. I think you looked great in all the hairdos!
I gave myself a little bit of the "BriteSmile" too.

Somewhere In Time- Christie (yardsalequeen) said...

Hey Kady! Girl, all of your pink fashions are pretty...I really love the blue jean shirt especially. I am definately a blue jean kinda girl and I am loving that shirt! Oh, and I love that photo of you and your daughter and the senior picture...you are beautiful girl...but I've always thought that about you! I love seeing pictures from the past...I think it's so fun. I have thought of posting my Senior picture with my 80's big hair....I'll have to do that soon. I think it's fun.
Have a great week!
xoxo
Queenie!

SchmeckyGirl said...

OMG! You are gorgeous with that straight hair!
