I think we've all known for a while that pink and red can be worn together - it's yet another fashion no-no that's now a definite yes-yes. So whether you wore pink, red, or pink AND red for Valentine's Day (or at any other time or for any other reason), do add your outfits to this week's iwillwearwhatilike link up! As always the theme is optional so all outfits, accessories and make-up looks are welcome.
My husband and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day, but we did go out this year because it was Sunday and it seemed wonderfully ironic to go and see Deadpool at the cinema. (If you're wondering, it was awesome and Ryan Reynolds is, of course, absolutely hilarious.) An early morning showing of 9:15 means you miss the crowds and no one is chomping popcorn or rustling sweet packets at that time of the day... It makes cinema-going a relaxing treat!
I thought it'd fun to wear pink and red anyway, and cold weather dictated a coat, scarf and boots. It's the first time I've worn my snakeskin boots (sadly sold out, but these are almost the same) since wearing them just the one time before I slipped the disc in my back. I'm back in heels now and then (when I don't have lots of walking to do) which makes me rather happy. I think these bright colours of red, pink and lilac look rather beautiful with winter white to set them off.
I THINK THESE BRIGHT COLOURS OF RED, PINK AND LILAC LOOK RATHER BEAUTIFUL WITH WINTER WHITE TO SET THEM OFF.
The location where we shot is actually one of the exits at the cinema (last since here) and I can't thank Vue Cinemas enough for providing glass walls on the first floor and a bright orange interior. A fashion blogger's paradise...!

Thank you for joining the #iwillwearwhatilike link up! This started as a campaign on Instagram in August 2015 where women over 30 wore everything on a journalist's list of "inappropriate" items for 30+ women (including leopard print, short dresses and oversized sunglasses. Yes, really). It was so popular that I decided to carry it on weekly where women of all ages link up their fabulous style, never mind what anyone tells them not to wear!
So link up all your fabulous outfits (or shoes, accessories, make-up, etc.) every Monday at 3pm UK time - it'll stay open for a week. Whilst the original article was of course aimed at the 30+, you can be ANY age to link up. The only criteria is that you're wearing whatever you damn well like!
My favourite LAYERING outfits from last week's link up:
(L-R) Prosperity by Renata | Petite Silver Vixen | Mrs. American Made | Living on Cloud Nine | Stylopedia
