Let's make Pink a Neutral

Yes, let's!   Wouldn't that be fun.  So much fun that we should try it with that other fun neutral,  leopard print.  It works surprisingly well doesn't it.  A grey leopard print automatically comes to mind but, wow, doesn't brown so work. 

 I was inspired by Fonda of Savy Southern Chic wearing this combination 2 months ago on Instagram.   Doesn't she look fabulous?  Would you have thought of this combination?

Shocking pink is how she modelled it but that's not my colour so I used my coral  pink cardigan from Boden.  I'm so glad Fonda showed this combination.  I will certainly wear it again.  My version was worn on a Sunday afternoon to our local bar to have a drink, or 16, with friends.  

I wore it with black jeans and brown belt picking up the leopard top colours. I chose not to wear a necklace as the top is busy enough.

Mr Him wore one of his Weird Fish Tshirts.  Prawn of the Dead.

Then to just stretch my point a little further I teamed pink with that other wannabe neutral,  stripes for casual Friday in the office. 

I haven't set a challenge recently dear Fashionista but today I am.  Go forth and style a pink cardigan.  Perhaps with leopard,  cheetah, elephant or zebra stripes.  Show it in your blog. I'd love to see your interpretations.
