Just Peachy

9th April 2014

 Happy Wednesday! Spring is in the air, and pastel colors are all the range! So today I decided to double up on a pinky hue by pairing peach with coral for a look that screams SPRING!

Who says you can’t have too much of a good thing? Peach can be a fun color to wear, but sometimes pastels read as too pretty and girly for me. To counteract this, I paired peach with a contrasting color for a cool monochrome look with a little pop!

What do you think about all my monochrome madness? Would love to hear from you!

Pretty in Pink

17th March 2014

Although I love tulle and twirl-worthy skirts, super-girly colors aren’t usually my thing. But with pastels having such a big moment this spring and again this fall I decided to dabble with this darling MinkPink dress and matching beret.

// Similar Stripe Coat under $130 // Similar Navy Stripe Trench under $60 // 
// MinkPink Fit Flare Pink Dress (also here) // Black Coach Willis Bag //
// H&M Big Black Bow Belt (similar) // Black Coach Nala Pumps // 
// Karen Walker Sunnies (similar under $60) // H&M Rings //
// C.wonder Gold Tassel Bracelet // Vintage Pink Beret // 

Since beanies can be a bore, I resorted to berets to keep warm this Winter…
and they allow me to continue pretending I’m in Paris, so that’s always a plus! I also found myself often wearing two pairs of tights, especially when I wanted to wear a lighter coat like like striped one. Fingers crossed that I won’t have to wear tights again until next fall. And a big black bow belt is something every bow-obsessed girl should have in her closet. It’s a easy way to add a flirty feel to any dress or skirt… I’ve even worn it over coats – it made me feel like a puffer princess!

Play with Pastels

19th January 2012

One of the spring trends for this year, that bloomed all over the runway was a color pallet: pastels
