OUTFIT DETAILS: topshop jacket (wearing size 2) | topshop tee (wearing size 4) | old navy jeans (from a few years ago, similar on sale here!) | pink pumps | old kate spade bag, similar here and here | similar necklace

I’ve been super drawn to neutrals lately, and baby pink and gray is my current favorite combination. It’s an unexpected pairing, but as perfect pairing that is so soft, subtle, and feminine. I already have a lot of gray in my closet, but since this baby pink is big this year, I’m slowly adding a few pieces in this color to my wardrobe. So this Topshop peplum jacket was also love at first sight. The fit is so flattering and structured, but it’s made out of a super soft knit so it’s the most comfortable jacket you’ll ever wear. Paired with my most comfortable jeans, and basic tee (also a favorite from Topshop, and only $20!) and my new favorite light pink pumps, this outfit is a winner in my book. Perfect for date night (and you can eat as much as you want without feeling like you’re busting out of your clothes…um, not that that ever happens to me…)

    @merrick I’m wondering how sheer this shirt is? I hate having to wear additional shade shirt or cami’s to cover up my delicates. Thanks!

    • Merrick says:

      I’m wearing a cami underneath it here, but I don’t have to. As long as I wear a nude colored bra, it’s totally fine. It’s not super thick, but it’s not sheer at all!

  6. Jaime Costilow says:

    Isn’t the pink and grey combo the best? It’s just so perfect for spring. I’ve never been a big pastel pink fan until this year, so I’m right with you on trying to slowly incorporate that color this season.

    XO, Jaime

  7. Love that Kate Spade bag! The texture on it is fantastic!
