I’m personally not a fan of pink eyeshadow (I think it makes people look sick for some reason), so I would do the second option you described with a light pink scarf. I also would prefer if the scarf and legwarmers didn’t match… having them match seems a little too matchy-matchy for my taste (especially when your black sweater and black leggings already match).

light pink and ivory and burlap? no, that does not coordinate with a black sweater, sorry!

KapOct18:  That eye look is really nice but it’s not really “pink” to me so I wouldn’t rely on that for bringing in the pink touches to the pics (if that’s what you want). I’d still go with a pink scarf. Or, if there will be pink flowers or something where you’re taking the pics, that’d be cute.

Its hard to imagine without pics. Feel free to disregard of course but…

What kind of setting? Are you sure black sweater and black leggings? That might look a little harsh in photos, your bod will fade to the back and be an amorphous sort of shape (from the sweater if it’s not fitted) while your leg warmer/scarf scenario will pop. It could wash you and the guy out as well. Also in the composition of the photo a black section of it might be quite stark unless its a dark sort of moody image you want.

Definitely do what’s most flattering for eye make up and not worry about the theme- no one will notice that and you could end up looking puffy/pink eyed. 

I would consider a flattering creme sweater or dress with a blush scarf and heels. I would also consider doing shots sans leg warmers just in case the trendiness bothers you later. You could also keep it simple an incorporate your colors with a prop- like a bouquet, sign or balloons.

So there’s some more overthinking from me, but I do style clothes for photo/video professionally so I overthink it all the time 🙂

KapOct18:  I don’t see any issue with a black sweater + black leggings, it’s not like you’re going for a summery theme here. But dark jeans would look nice too.

KapOct18:  Yeah, by no means do your engagement pics need to match your wedding colors, so just do whatever you feel the most confident in! And congrats on the weight loss!!!
