Have you ever wondered where old school fashion rules came from? Or is that just something I geek out over? It truly is so interesting to me, and what’s the most interesting is just how much influence our culture and the times has on how we dress. I could literally go on and on for days about this topic but I’ll save that for another day. 😉 Since what I really wanted to touch on, is something I’ve struggled with for years…wearing pink. Phew.
