Pastel, Most Prominently

You would not be very surprised at what I am about to tell you. I do not really own any clothes in pastel shades. I do have pastel nail colours, but lately I do not even wear those. Do I hear cumulative sighs or a disgruntled grunts? Was it really a surprise? No? Never mind with all these questions. So, I got thinking while browsing e-shops that if I did own anything pastel what it would be. It had to be something where I will not be able to cheat and wear something black in the mix. I also spotted a rainbow a couple of days back so that may have had something to do with this stroke of inspiration.
Dresses ← that was the answer. I mean I could throw in black shoes or nails in the mix but the overall look will have pastel most prominently.
Look in your wardrobe. What is that one thing you do not have? You cannot name something you hate, it is obvious you will not have something you hate to begin with. Look for something that you maybe do not love that much, but that your wardrobe is crying out for. A balanced wardrobe will have options that can be worn for any occasion with as many different dress codes. Your wardrobe should have 80% things you love to wear, 10% basics and the other 10% which comprise of a mix and match of the rest of the things you love, but never remember to spend on and then frump around when you do not have that something to wear to that certain somewhere. Makes sense? I think it does.

  9. Love this set!

  10. I can't imagine someone would hate pastels (since I love them so) but if I had to come up with one person, it might be you. I'm very surprised that you don't hate pastels since I certainly can't imagine you in that traditional "twee" blogger wear.

    As for me... gosh, I really have no idea. I have items from so many styles due to my changing styles over the years.
