Good Evening squeezers! I hope you had an eventful, restful, and awesome weekend! I spent mine doing some writing, getting ready for a segment tomorrow, and spending time with my kiddos and husband (which means schlepping from birthday parties and playdates and some unwinding with wine in between).
It’s been a little bit since I’ve shared a trend alert so I thought it was about time I put one out there in the blogoverse! This go around, we’re going to be talking…PASTELS!
There are so many ways to wear pastels. Pastels aren’t colors you just bring out during Easter in the form of a Sunday’s best dress. There are plenty of options- from classic suits, co-ord sets, tops, even heels! The best part is you can mix and match with so much!
I found this pastel lilac vintage tee at Topshop and I thought it was an easy way to try out the pastel trend without going overboard. The print was felt very retro and I was thinking of other ways to wear it other than with denim. I had recently gotten this Alice & Olivia ruffled skirt and thought, “hmm, wouldn’t that be a fun pairing?” The skirt is high-waisted and the t-shirt was slightly cropped so for me, it worked out perfectly because it wasn’t a full-on crop.
Next came the accessorizing and I had so much fun doing that! I added a small leopard bag and these great jeweled platform wedges from Zara that dress up any outfit. Of course, can’t forget my glasses, which my friends still hate and it only makes me love them even more!
I’ve gone on to wear my pastel top with high-waisted jean shorts, mom jeans, and even sweatpants (gasp!) I have plans to wear them this week with a pair of white culottes I just picked up at Ann Taylor. I’m looking forward to that look!
Oh! I almost forgot the earrings! I also picked these up at Topshop on sale and I can’t stop wearing them! They are so festive and fun and such a vibrant pop of color now for the summer. You’ll be seeing a lot more of these babies =)
There was no better place to photograph this outfit than in Wynwood. Don’t you think it captures it’s funkiness perfectly?!
How do you wear your pastels! I really want to know! Make sure to DM me or tag me so I can see your style.
