In the Pink

ts23y06kppk_zoom_m_4Right now I am a little* obsessed with pink sweaters.

*Okay, a lot

I blame my friend Joanna, who is a very talented garden designer and mother to similarly-aged small people, and therefore the ideal companion for jaunts around Kew Gardens. [Me : This one’s pretty. Joanna: Ah, yes, the Magnificantia Floribunda Trimeria, an excellent perennial. (I made the Latin name up, by the way, just in case you didn’t guess.] She’s also a great fan of a pink jumper and I seem to have caught it from her.

I recently bought this from Asos – which engendered bemused hilarity (“It’s pink. It has ruffled shoulders. It’s a bit sci fi?”) from my husband and adoration from my daughter, but you were very kind about it on Instagram which made me feel like it was a good buy. Which is – now I come to think of it – how I can account for yesterday’s trolley dash in Topshop which led to the purchase of this [top] – which is the palest shade of blush petal pink and very mood-lifting it is, too, now winter has started to bite. (If it’s too ruffled for you, but you like the hue, try the Grace Button Sweater from Boden.)

Fancy being in the pink yourself? (Come on in – it’s very flattering.) Here are six of the best ways to do it…
