Reading Ausubel in the light pink playsuit
Lately, when I am deciding what to wear for the day, my hands have been resting on the clothing pieces I have collected over the last few weeks and finding myself wanting to wear pink.
Donning black dresses for as long as I can remember…
I wasn’t always into the color pink. For years, I wore black from head to toe. This was during dreary winter days, carrying piles of books while balancing my umbrella, when walking out of the library in the rain.
I also wore black during the hottest summer days. When everyone around me wore white summer dresses and short shorts, I wore black camisole tops and black blouses. I would always look like I was going to a funeral on those rare afternoons when I headed to the beach with a paperback under my arms and a black summer dress covering me up.

The day I started to dress pink
I cannot tell you the exact moment when I started to wear this delicate looking color. Somehow, as the weather grew warmer in my village and my daydreams turned into intricately woven stories, pink started to make sense.
Maybe it’s because I fell in love or maybe it’s because I have chosen to admire what is soft in the world. Regardless of the reason, this color has established itself into my style and become a staple in my wardrobe.
It feels easier to get my head in the clouds whenever I wear pink. Despite its feminine traits and soft features, there is still a haunting element that permeates this color. This color reminds me of fiery pink clouds, ones that appear just before the darkest of nights fall and we are left with nothing but a few stars scattered in the sky.
This light pink playsuit I wore while reading Ramona Ausubel’s Nobody is Here Except all of us. I spent a day in this fashion number as the window panes grew still, the wind hushed and even my thoughts were mere whispers while I read this quiet book.
How to wear pink with anything
Wearing this delicate looking color is to choose to look like a dream. Pair soft grey knitted tops with pink pleated skirts that move as you sway down the street. Wear pink tops with relaxed trousers and sneakers, and pair blush pink slip dresses with lace up ballet pumps and satchels.
You can wear pink heeled pumps with cocktail dresses or denim, to dance the nights away and you can daydream during those long walks with pink sunglasses that shield your eyes from the sun.
While the light pink playsuit was a perfect loungewear option for summer, here are a few more soft pink numbers to take you through the coming dreamy days of Autumn.
