Pastel Pretty


Happy EBEW day! This month’s theme is pastel, which is a really huge trend right now. I don’t have a lot of pastel pieces, but I was determined to work with what I already have in my closet to make this look my own.

I basically just put on everything I owned that could be considered pastel! This is exactly why I love participating in EBEW each month. It stretches my creativity, and I almost always end up in outfits I would have never thought of otherwise.

I ended up LOVING this look because of the soft, sweet hues and the way they contrasted with my darker tone. Plus, I have been wearing a lot of really bright clothing lately so it was a nice change.

Notice the bag. It has not disappointed. I am still smitten. I can’t get over the fact that my 5’1 self found a big bag that doesn’t swallow me. I deserve some kind of special award for that feat people.

One of my favorite ways to keep up with new trends is by easy accessorizing. (Cristin talked about this also a few weeks ago!)  For example, I almost always wear the same gold bangles and bracelets these days; I just switch out the biggest, chunkiest one depending on my color scheme. Lately I’m loving this pastel blue J Crew bracelet. Also, I haven’t bought any new clothing as far as pastels are concerned, but it was cheap and easy to find this pastel green nail color.

Thanks for reading! What are your favorite pastel pieces? Are you like me and lacking in that area?
