Outside of an uber-girly childhood, the only time that pink seems marginally appropriate is for Valentine's Day, don't you think?
And even then, it's still best to have it in measured doses: A touch of rosebud L'ancome lipstick, dusty pink suede on a Proenza Schouler PS Satchel, a powdery wash on that cuddly A.P.C sweater, and a teeny tiny hint on the leather cord of that sweet Fawn by Jennifer Fisher necklace...
Anything more, and it's a confectionery overkill.
For the very least, I say, take your chance at winning the Love Charms necklace by Fawn and indulge in a bit of pink for Valentine's - on the house, courtesy Au Courant Daily.

I love how designer Shabd Simon-Alexander's simple collection of ethereal silks & jersey-material separates have managed to skirt the Hippie associations that come along with anything Tye-Dye.
Drawing inspiration for her muted, yet colourful pieces from, "minimalist art, quiltmaking, and the folk costume tradition of beginning one dress with the remnants from the last," Shabd's collections boast a wearable array of dreamlike basics that are just begging to be mixed and matched.
Our favourites? Those sleeveless, sheer tops, for sure - so perfect for a sunny getaway and the impending heat of the Summer...

We're not super, super big on the frivolity of Valentine's Day; we're more into the give a little love every day school of thought...

And thus, one of our lucky, loved-up readers will get this sweet Fawn by Jennifer Fisher chain-n-charms piece on Valentine's Day! It's worth over $200.00 USD, and hangs ever so delicately from a leather cord chain.
