The Unicorns Made Me Do It: A Pink Dress and the Unicorn Frappucino

The Unicorns Made Me Do It: A Pink Dress and the Unicorn Frappucino

It’s been a hot minute since Starbucks released a truly spectacular drink.  Ever since the #PinkDrink went crazy last year, there have been variations made and a couple new additions to the team (all rainbow colors of course).  So, naturally, when they announced their #UnicornFrappe the world went nuts.  This concoction is nothing but magical sweetness in a cup.  The primary flavor is mango, with a subtle tangy aftertaste due to the sour blue drizzle.  Is it perfectly picturesque and fairy-tastical for your Instagram feed?  Absolutely.  Does it taste as divine as it looks?  Honestly, I think it’s pretty dang awesome.  I may be one of the few to truly enjoy this drink, all 280 calories (in a tall) of it.  While I expected it to be sickeningly sweet, I was pleasantly surprised that the sweetness wasn’t as overpowering, and tasted more like drinking liquid SweeTarts than anything else.

Even if this drink was a permanent item on the Starbucks menu, I don’t think it would replace my day-to-day coffee beverage, but it’s a fun treat, and a great way to bring some color to my blog.  I took it along as a yummy prop for my photoshoot today, and boy was I grateful to have it, since we experienced our first almost-90° day here in RVA.  Now that the weather is getting warmer, I’m switching from primarily pants to nonstop dresses.  Right before I left for my Easter trip up the coast with Brandon, I stopped into Versona to grab the perfect holiday dress.  I had tried this piece on just a couple weeks before in white, but when I saw this gorgeous ballerina pink shade, I knew it had to be mine.

It seems as though cold-shoulders and blush pink are taking over my closet this spring, and I’m not mad about it.  Before you know it, my entire clothing collection will consist of these trends.  The cold-shoulder style allows me to show off my arms without the pain of a completely OTS (off-the-shoulder) item that won’t stay put no matter what I do.  I think my child self would find it hilarious how much I love wearing pink, considering how much I disliked it while growing up, but it’s feminine and fun and now I can’t stop, won’t stop.

What do you think of these trends?  Cold-shoulders, blush pink, and unicorn frappuccinos?  Have you tried any or all of them?  Let me know your thoughts!

    I’ve been meaning to try this drink! Starbucks always comes up with these crazy creations and maybe it’s pink and maybe it’s called unicorn but it definitely piqued my interest!

    You look really beautiful here and I love how you’ve styled your hair. When I first heard about this drink I actually thought it was a joke but the way you described it you made it sound so good!

    I have tried the cold shoulder and off the shoulder. I actually love both although I only have a few of each in my closet. The Unicornfrappe not. I think I will stick to my coffee and tea. Dress looks great on you!

    I also tried the unicorn drink and I surprisingly light! Am I the only one that thinks that it tastes like the milk from your Froot Loops Cereal? I don’t know maybe not it’s weird but it tasted like that to me, it also had a sour kick to it?

    Now as far as your outfit goes when I saw this little blush dress on your Insta stories I fell in love with it! Super cute 🙂

    Yup, this has been all over Insta since it was released a few days ago and I’d probably buy one just for the gram and not drink it, haha. And are you seriously asking me what I think of pink and unicorns? You know I adore the pink and blush trend and have dedicated my life to either become, marry or find a unicorn, haha. 🙂

    I thought it was a pretty good drink too! I think their marketing tactic behind it was genius! Even if people didn’t like it they still couldn’t resist the hype. Although, they should let people know when they run out… I went back with my boyfriend to make him try it and after waiting in line for 20 min, they were out of it. Anyways, this dress ties in so perfectly with the magical drink for an overall fantasy of a look. Love it!

    I’m also a fan of blush and cold shoulders! And I haven’t tried the unicorn drink, and was going to avoid it since it looked so unhealthy, but after you shared it wasn’t as sweet and not too many calories maybe I will!! It certainly looks delish and fun! 🙂
