How to Make (Baby) Pink Your Favorite Color This Winter
The Style Sauce Favorite Pink Blog Post

When you think of winter wear pink doesn't usually come to mind, does it? It seems like red's more low-key cousin usually pops up alongside resort wear in the Spring and Summer, but here's 5 ways to incorporate everyone's favorite feminine color into your life in the chicest way during these cooler months. Major perk? You don't have to ditch the color come Spring and Summer, so some of these are classics for all year round. 

1) Pick a muted tone. If there's anything to remember when reaching for pink this year it's that muted is much better. Hot pink is a totally different world, but if you opt for a nude, baby pink, or blush, it's a much easier incorporate into your every day wardrobe. 

2) Wear it in a floral or print.

Florals are everywhere, even in the Fall. Find pink in an embroidered bomber this season or in a silk blouse for a little boom.

3) Opt for a pop of pink in your home.

Not ready to wear pink? Maybe you'll be willing to decorate with it. Pink couches might be my favorite thing, but if you can't commit to that try a candle, pillows, or a piece of art to warm up your space.


4) Choose an accessory.

A pink backpack, scarf, shoe, or pair of sunnies is a great way to wear pink without doing it head to toe. A blush heel would look cute with any little black dress, or a pink backpack goes great with jeans and a tee.

5) As outerwear:

A baby pink jacket is oh so chic. Opt for a wool trench or pink sweater for a warm way to wear this soft and feminine tone all year round.  If you like the one I'm wearing in this post from Azalea SF, check it out here.

Sale Alert: Black Friday/ Cyber Monday 2016
the style sauce shopping

With all the recent election news I can't wait for the Holidays to be here so I can just try to forget about it all. Plan on catching me drowning my sorrows and opinions in copious amounts of red wine while trying to score some Chanel shoes for half price, or maybe a flight to Thailand for like, a lifetime. Seriously- I don't care if you're a Trump fan or Hilary fan, let's just NOT talk about it here. #SAFEPLACE !

Ok, let's get down to business, and talk sales. If you're anything like me you're waiting to buy pretty much anything until now through the next week or so when it will all be on sale. Gobble, gobble! Let's eat stuffing guys, and then... it's the most wonderful (shopping) time of the year! #HellyeahAmerica

A lot of big retailers have caught wind that millennials, myself included, and also other assortments of sane people, are just not into waking up at 3 am to go shopping on Black Friday. That being said, there's a lot of sales starting online at Midnight on Thanksgiving (or even earlier.) Of course, for you die-hards there's door busters and such at the stores too... may the force be with you should you decide to go this route. If you need me I'll be here in my PJS where I don't have to come in contact with human beings and can continue eating pie for the next decade.

Below check out some of my favorite deals for all your post-Thanksgiving coma shopping needs. I'm planning on getting all of my Christmas presents early this year ;)

Click the pink links below to take you straight to shop each sale. Can't wait to hear about all the great things you find for a steal the next few days. I'll for sure share some of mine- probably on Insta stories.

Have fun!!!!!

#NSale: My Picks

Unless you live in a cave, (and I'm jealous if you do cause this world is really scary lately)- you've heard about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale by now. The Anniversary Sale is the créme de la créme of sales, because unlike most sales, it gives you the opportunity to buy things from next season on sale, instead of bargains on last season. This is a plus because it gives you more time to wear the stuff and you get a great price on it too. WINNING. One of my favorite traditions growing up was going back to school shopping with my mom at this sale and it still holds so much nostalgia for me because of it.  Here's a break down of some of my favorites. Below you can shop the sale directly by clicking on the pictures of the items that you may like- no need to even leave your couch and go to your nearest Nordie's. Dangerous, I know. My very favorites from the gallery below are:

  1.  Alexander Wang booties - I am dying over them and definitely may be purchasing these before the sale is over. Oxblood is something you will be seeing a lot of this Fall, so these can be a total staple for the coming cooler months.
  2. The white Frame blouse with the neck bow is another staple I could see myself wearing with everything. My favorite shirts are white, and this one has a detachable bow which is so chic. It can be put with everything from your daily denim to a pencil skirt for those days you have an important presentation or just want to look extra pulled together. 
  3. Rebecca Minkoff fringe backpack: I have the non-fringe version of this backpack and it has been a staple in my closet for the past year and a half. I use it so much that it is literally falling apart in certain places and I need a new one, ha! Such an awesome buy for the price- you will not regret this purchase, especially with the great deal Nordstrom is offering- I have never seen these backpacks on sale other than here. 
  4. Zella "Cut it Out" High Waisted Leggings: I'm sure you're seeing a trend here and it's that I'm picking all staples. Last year, I bought Zella leggings at the sale and they've held up so well for athletic gear, and they're something that I can wear all of the time when I'm running errands or obviously heading to my favorite workout class(es). On these I love the mesh panels which give them an edge and the fact that they're high waisted which gives you the option of pairing them with a cute sports bra or cropped shirt.
