My Outfit Monday: Pink shades aplenty

Pink, pink, more pink. And still I wonder, can you really have enough pink?

Pink, pink, more pink. And still I wonder, can you really have enough pink?



I scoped out DSW this weekend in effort to help my cousin find dressy wedges for her sister's outdoor wedding. I was so selfless, y'all, passing up all kinds of shoes for myself to focus on the hole in her wardrobe.

Except, fine. In truth, she found zero dressy wedges, and it was I who ended up at the cash register with a little something new. In my defense, it was a rare purchase: a pair of bright blue tennis shoes with yellow laces. I must have had the sporty shoes in the back of my mind when choosing my outfit this morning. It's a rosy ensemble of dainty femininity.

I'm wearing neon pink-dipped canvas flats from TJ Maxx, a pink Target V-neck, ye olde classic Loft pencil skirt, and a blush pink feather-printed lightweight jacket. The jacket is extra special because former Deal Diva Emily gifted it unto me in a closet purge. We don't know why she never wore it.

I'm in the Tramor Cafeteria hanging out with this old hand-operated device for the St. Petersburg Times and Evening Independent known as the Intertype Model C line-casting machine. "It is a successor to the Linotype machine that revolutionized the printing industry," says the accompanying informational placard you can see but cannot read in the picture. Our newsprint operations are electronic these days, so the line-casting machine is enjoying retirement in the vacant cafeteria.

Now you have an outfit and important moments in newspaper technology to talk about. What are you waiting for?
