La Vie En Rose is not just a famous song, it is a way of life. Pink has always been my favorite color. I wanted to style a pastel pink monochrome outfit because I think that these warm pastel colors look so good together. For this look I was inspired by Blair of Atlantic Pacific. She is the color blocking and monochrome queen. I love how she picks a color and styles it head-to-toe (I know my boots and leggings aren’t pink, but imagine this look with pink slacks and pink pumps). It is so easy to style a pastel monochrome outfit, especially when the color you are centering around is your favorite.
Someone once told me that Vancouver, Washington has the most coffee shops per capita. I don’t doubt it considering this city is just north of Portland, Oregon and is also in the home state of Starbucks. Washington living is never short of coffee. While I’m not a huge coffee drinker, I do indulge every once in a while. I like the flavor and the warm feeling in my belly. I also love iced coffee and am that person that orders some in the winter – anyone with me?
My photographer and I found the cutest little cafe in Vancouver to shoot at. It’s called Boomerang and I love it’s charm. It has a bar, delicious food and coffee for lounging around or on the go. My pastel pink monochrome outfit matched the exposed brick pretty well! I just love this pompom hat (similar here) and teddy bear coat (similar here). My long turtleneck comes in a few colors and has been my go-to outfit with leggings since November! Tell me about the coffee shop scene where you live – they are the cutest places to take photos as a blogger, and with the constant PNW rain they make a good escape from bad weather!
