Pretty in Pink

Forever 21 top (similar here and here)
J.Crew pencil skirt 
Zara heels (similar here, splurge here and here)

I wore this outfit under my master's robe for graduation. Pencil skirts are my "teacher wardrobe" staple and I love hot pink too much to pass this one up (along with too many other hot pink items J.Crew came out with that season). When wearing one loud color, I generally like to keep everything else simple and neutral. The closeup shot is of my nails that I painted purple and gold for graduation in honor of my school's colors.

  16. Love your outfit!! The pink is so pretty and reminds me of cotton candy. Congrats on graduating, that's very exciting. I'm also a fashion/food blogger in Seattle who recently just started. Great to find another Seattle blogger : )
