It’s funny how seriously my daughter takes the subject of “favorite colors.” I was the same way — as a child, I was fiercely devoted to blue (just like her!), which was my calling card at home, where anything blue (blue cup, blue backpack, blue notebook, etc) belonged to me versus my other siblings, who pigeon-holed themselves with different colors. So I do get it when my daughter insists that anything pink must belong to me. It’s unintelligible that I would try to use any other color crayon, or wear any other color sticker, “because pink is mommy’s favorite.” Sometimes the symmetry and simplicity of youth is refreshing. I do love pink. Below, a few favorite pretty pink (and associated) finds:
SHRIMPS EARRINGS (ON SALE FOR UNDER $75)

CHANTECAILLE HIGHLIGHTER — THE CHICEST ACCESSORY

P.S. If it’s hot pink you’re after…!
