Pastels must be the long word for pastries! ( no, its not, but it should). Being a spring baby I can’t help but love pastels. The sweetness of the colors is as tasteful as cupcakes, and like cupcakes, should be worn sparingly. I only say this because lets be honest, as pretty as the colors are ( like white) they get dirty easily and are normally associated with spring. Although, this “rule” this fall season, when pastels were seen all over the runway.
I revolved this outfit around my pants – I really like how flattering they are. I knew I wanted to do pastels, so I paired it with these very pretty blue shirt and my bedazzled Steve Madden Heels. The outcome? I nice mixture of pastels and metallics. Hope you all like!

Spring is around the corner ( 10 days away actually) for a lot of those that live north of the border. For those of us that are fortunate enough to live in warm states, spring has actually been around since like December, since our “winters” are more like spring weather. I wanted a look that would welcome spring in open arms and what better way to say “hi!” than in pastels. I am actually looking forward to spring since it is my favorite season!
This gorgeous dress was actually purchased at Goodwill and I love everything about it. It is a form fitting dress that accentuates my curves nicely and the color really compliments my skin. The coat was another Goodwill find that I am absolutely in love because of its beautiful embroidery detail. The biggest splurge here was the shoes. Although, the term “splurge” I use loosely since the shoes were only $60 ( about 50% off retail ). I wanted to add a bit of shimmer and contrast to this outfit and that is why I did wore these shoes with it. I think the gold accent with the pastel is definitely a nice mixture.

The element of surprise this fall season was definitely pastels. Pastels are better known to be the epitome color of spring; however, many designers such as Miu Miu, Just Cavalli, Nina Ricci, Gucci and many others, had different hues of pastel making a splash here and there on their runway shows. Of course, I had to take a stab at it and so here it is!
