Wheel’s Up…


H&M pink jeans

You’d never guess that I’m not the biggest fan of pink if you saw me walking around in these jeans, eh? For some reason in the store, I thought they were more of a faded red, but when I got them home realized they were pretty darn pink. I would’ve thought I’d panic in this situation, but turns out I really love them. The close-up with the shoes is definitely more accurate, they aren’t as hot pink as the first pic.

My friend Erin recently kicked off her new Etsy shop with a giveaway of one of her handmade necklaces. I was so excited to win! I love the vector styling of the ribbon, as she knew I would, AND that they are made out of recycled leather!

She custom stamped the wording and after struggling on what to put on there, I finally decided on some old-timey pilot slang in honor of my love of airplanes. “Wheel’s Up” was an old military saying for when a flight deploys, and is still used to describe take-off. It’s also used to pinpoint the time a plan is executed, so I feel like it’s relevant to me graduating soon and ready to “take-off” on a new career path.

    I was a little surprised and touched to find an(other) airplane geek ;-) in this part of the blog world. I work for a Swedish aircraft manufacturer and I’m very fond of especially the old beauties.

    That necklace is so cool, just the right words for you!

      That is so awesome! You are right- there aren’t many airplane geeks in style blog land :) So cool you get to work around them!

    What a nice post to find early this morning! I’m so glad you’re happy with the necklace! It looks great on you :).
    And those pants!! Haha admittedly, I thought the highlighter colour in the first shot was pretty rad, but the uneven fading adds such a nice texture to them. That colourful map makes such a neat photo background, too!

    I tend to shy away from pink too – but gah, I would wear these pants in a heartbeat! I love the punch-y color of them and that little cardi is the cutest! You are the queen of putting together the best colorful and secondhand ensembles!

    Heading over to check out her shop. That necklace is adorable!

    Yeah! Glad you won, lady! I love her shop – I may get one with our wedding date – cheeseball. Love the saying on yours. You know, we had a vintage t in our last sale covered in airplanes and I meant to pull it out, then someone brought it up to the check-out and I was like, Noooooooooo. Sorry about that – still makes me mad! :) Anywho – you look great in pink, I especially love the 80s side zipper. It’s just all coming back isn’t it? xoxo

    Very cute outfit, even if the jeans are pinker than you thought, they’re still so cute. They look just like some jeans forever 21 has right now. I love that necklace and the phrase you picked. So creative!

  7. Love the pink jeans! And love the necklace. That sentiment seems just right for you…

    I love your jeans, but then again I’m a fan of pink. :) That sweater is soooo cute and I’m a bit sad it is thrifted so I can’t run out and buy it.
