Have you ever lied to yourself? When it comes to the statement, “I don’t like pink”, I have clearly lied to myself.

I have professed my disdain for pink throughout my years, but have recently been finding myself gravitating towards it.

I’ve never been a girly-girl and as a self-professed lover of neutrals, pink was my nemesis. Was. I know happily welcome pink into the fold of my closet. Fuschia to be exact.

Fuschia DIY box pleated skirtI purchased this fabric from Joann’s fabric and I loved it. First, I love polyester shantung, but this color is just so popping! I had to have it in a box pleated skirt. So, I made one!

I let my skirt shine and paired it with my linen button down (you thought it was denim, didn’t cha?), faux pearls, and nude pumps.

I had fun swinging it! Swoosh!
