Have you heard of the Barbiecore trend?

What is Barbiecore?

Barbiecore is a new trend that focuses on pink, pink, and more pink!  The trend really had a moment on the runway at Valentino.  Also, there’s the hype of the new Barbie movie coming out with Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

For me, thoughts of Barbie brings back memories of hours and hours playing with Barbie dolls, creating a whole Barbie world, full of Barbie fashion, and writing stories for all my dolls to play out.  Who can’t enjoy a little nostalgia?

Of course to some women, Barbie represents something else … a restrictive and unrealistic mold of what a women “should” be.  I understand that complaint completely and hope that the new Barbie world can embrace more diversity in body shape and ethnicity as well. It will be interesting to see how the movie deals with that issue.

Since I don’t have the budget right now for a whole new pink wardrobe, I just added in a pop of hot pink to this  outfit and tried to channel a little Barbie energy.  For this look, I’m wearing my Kut from the Kloth jeans, an Elie Tahari oversized blazer, my houndstooth pattern booties, and a hot pink tee from the Gap (proving that you don’t have to spend a lot, or commit to too much, to still have some fun with trends!).

I’m also wearing some beautiful new jewelry from Kendra Scott (gifted).  You’ve got to check it out!  These earrings are show stoppers and super lightweight too!  Wear now with your new fall looks and then be sure to keep them around for the holidays!

What do you think? Feeling inspired to add a little pink to your closet?

Also on the blog lately, my visit to the new Restoration Hardware in San Francisco (and what I wore, of course), and a boho vibe with wide-leg jeans, and getting my fall vibes on!

Are you getting the monthly Fashion Should Be Fun newsletter?  Following me on Instagram?  How about TikTok (yeah I finally gave in to TikTok!). Keep in touch, Ladies!  I always want to see your outfits! 😁

On a personal note, the new school year is off to a good start and teaching part time is truly a dream come true!

Stay fun & fashionable, Dear Readers!

About the blog: Fashion Should Be Fun is me talking to you, other middle aged women like me who are over 40, but not over fashion.  We still want to look beautiful and stylish.  We still want to have fun with trends.  And we don’t need anyone giving us rules, because we’re all different. We all have our own shapes and bodies, parts we’d like to cover and parts we still don’t mind showing off a bit.  This is a place for me to share my love of fashion with you, style ideas, tips, trends, and inspiration. I know how liking the way we look can translate into confidence and energy. I know we have so much life left to live and so much adventure ahead of us. Let’s show the world you’re never too old to have fun and be fierce!
