While I love The Cambridge Satchel Company's Tangerine Tango bag, pink is my first choice of colour, from my own fluoro-pink satchel to my pink Whistles Carrie skirt to my new pink Nike Free Run+ 3 running shoes.
First, let's get this straight – I'm not a head-to-toe princess-y pink kind of girl. Nor, contrary to this picture, is my wardrobe overflowing with items in pink. But I am partial to the colour, especially as an accent or as a bold, bright pop. What about you? What colour defines your style?
Pink and grey is one of my favourite colour combos, so I'll be wearing a grey marl sweat top from Whistles (£50) with my Carrie skirt; Gap's grey jersey T-shirt maxi dress (£29.95) with my Cambridge satchel (I've got the electric-blue version and it's so comfy), and a grey tee and shorts with my Nike running shoes (I've started running again in an attempt to get bikini-ready!).
Obviously, the shoes and satchel are available now if you want your own pop of pink, while Topshop does a very similar pleat skirt. It's £25 in the sale, reduced from £48, and has side splits, front and back.
You can get the Nike Free Run+ 3 running shoes (£80) in a choice of eight colours, or you can design your own colour scheme using the NikeiD customisation tool. And the satchel comes in myriad colours from £74, with four fluoro choices from £105.
Meanwhile, spring/summer 2012's reincarnation of the Carrie skirt at Whistles is called Lottie. She comes in a pale blue and is reduced in the sale from £110 to £65.
Lastly, for Cambridge Satchel fans, check out its clearance page. Seconds, with varying degrees of flaws, are offered at reduced prices, from £50. Let me know if you find anything.
