When you are privileged enough to take part in the rounds of a pair of boxing gloves, and not just any boxing gloves but THE pink boxing gloves, then you might want to put on your fanciest pink duds to go with them. Pile them on, for pink boxing gloves are power and softness in one, the strength of female friendship, support and acceptance all represented by pink. Tolerance, trust and a sense of belonging to a community all travel the globe with these pink gloves.
Coordinating my outfit with these gloves was not a challenge at all, particularly at this time of year. My summer wardrobe if full of pink. Of all the colours typically on offer for summer, pink rarely offends me. I am not particularly drawn to the ice cream colours or neons summer fashion offers up but most shades of pink look good on me so it is a safe pick. Pink is also one of my happy colours, along with purple, and the softer version of my power colour, red. I had many pink flowers in my garden too, back in that other life when I had a garden. Although I object to pink as it is overused in the toy department, or as some sort of symbolism of the female, I don't blame this on the colour itself.
The pink of the gloves has a blue undertone, making it a mauve pink so I selected the outfit accordingly. The dress is actually in the mending pile but the repair is a small one and I need to purchase the right thread colour, so it has been pulled for photo shoot duty today. Usually it is three glasses of wine that will get me punchy, but a fabulous dress and some matching gloves will do it too. Come on over and join me for a glass of wine punch and we can get punchy together. I just need to figure out how to pour it with these gloves on!
