I am down to the dregs of my winter outfit list, trying to squeeze out a few more from that batch before I tackle my spring ideas. I am ITCHING to start in on spring, but since we are due for a four-inch snowfall tomorrow … OK, I’m not even gonna finish that sentence.

Already Pretty Daily Outfit 3/22/11 featuring houndstooth dress

I love pairing this houndstooth dress with super brights. The stark print just begs for loads of explosive color, and I think this bold pink fits the bill.

  • I love the way the hot pink tights really makes the houndstooth POP!

  • What a great idea to wear pink tights! Pair it with houndstooth. As a lover of pink, I’m always on the lookout for ways to wear it that doesn’t look too young or silly for me. You’ve given me a great idea.

    Hate to tell you, but it’s 80 degrees where I live, and I’ve just returned from a trip up north, and I’m suddenly realizing that I need to get my wardrobe ready for the change of seasons. Of course, we’ll have another cold snap or two. Using a little cardi like the one you have on would help me transition on those days where we have cool mornings and hot afternoons.

    Great outfit.

    Hi!! I love the idea of brights with black and white! And this looks perfect!

    And before I forget, I’m a long time lurker, and found you through Angie’s site a few years ago (your guest post on your tattoos) and thank god I did! You, Audi and Angie have made me feel so comfortable in my skin. I’m 23 and it’s been amazing to learn and grow, and feel comfortable at this age! Thanks for inspiring me to be me ALL the time!! <3

  • I will not be impressed if it snows tomorrow, but I am impressed that this outfit is at the bottom of your list since it is so great looking.

  • I really love the pink! So bright and happy!

  • The houndstooth print and the pink are amazing! The pink makes it looks so fresh, and un-stodgey, it is a perfect match. Reminds me of a spring bulb, a wonderful blossom that promises springtime. Lovely!

    I absolutely love this outfit! I really want one! That would make me happy all day!

  • What a brilliant outfit! I love it.

  • T.

    You look fantastic! I’ll bet people smiled at you all day today.

  • I usually veer away from pink but this is such an ingenious way of wearing it!
    Also, your hair is ADORABLE. 🙂

  • I like this one a lot! This is the sort of look I frequently want to create – a black and white pattern with a solid – but it doesn’t come together for me. I’ll have to remember this!

  • Absolutely a winner!

  • Black, white and pink all over!

  • Oh my! I could just eat you in this outfit Sal! So super sweet!

  • I always love how you wear color, Sal, but I must say that this bright pink and houndstooth might be my favorite color/black/white pairing. The three just work so well together! It’s bold and confident and so cool. Very Sal!

  • Anat

    I noticed the pink of your cardigan perfectly fits the pinkish hue of your cheek!

    Now >that’s< matchy magic!

  • Super-bright colors like that can be scary, but that outfit is WOW on you. I think it may be an all time favorite of mine. I get such great ideas from you.

    Rock on girl !

    This is beautiful, and the pop of color was just what I needed to see on a dreary day. Thanks again, for contributing beauty to my world, via the internet!

  • Oh Sal, 4 inches of snow?!? I guess I should be grateful that we’ve only got rain out here, but I still feel like winter is carrying on waaay too long. Your pinks look plenty springy to me though, and I love that houndstooth dress.
