THE 405 PINKS

When I heard Starburst Brands had painted a pink wall in Chicago it was hard not to say YES to a photo opportunity. Every time I see a Pink Starburst it brings a smile to my face and memories of my first summer living in the US and experiencing the Californian dream! Sun, sea…….. and the daily grind of 405 traffic quickly became a ritual! My roomie/coworker was a huge BEATTLES & STARBURST fan……so jammin’ along the 405 freeway with treats became the new norm! He always handed me the PINK starbursts from the packet. I am not sure whether it was a “girl pink thing” or he simply wasn’t crazy about them! I secretly LOVED them…….PINK & John Lennon now that would be delightful music!  Sitting in the concrete parking lot of the 405 everyday belting out THE BEATLES tunes and chewing on PINK starbursts until we got home to make dinner and play volleyball on the beach with all the Irish crew (life was oh so tough!!); fond memories! Can you imagine the excitement when I realized I was color co-ordinated with my Flamingo tote?! 

Quick wardrobe change from shorts and flip flops for a casual everyday look to skirt & heels for a date night! The same top and jewels featured in both outfits! I LOVE this top because it is a wardrobe staple where you can dress it up or down depending on the day or occasion.

Of course I had to plan THE outfit for this pic and couldn’t decide what to wear but I knew there must be some reason why I kept this yellow skirt at the back of my wardrobe!

 I am a pink Starburst! Murals also featured in Miami, LA and NY (until 06/19/17). For Chicago folks it’s at Milwaukee and Evergreen in Wicker Park.
