Pastel Therapy




Sweater (Marshalls); Tank (Nordstrom); Jeans (Target); Shoes (Nine West)
Watch (Fossil); Necklace (Banana Republic)


My fondness for pastels is typically reserved for baby shower decorations and Easter eggs.   And while it was tempting to add something bright to this outfit, there is something therapeutic and calming about dressing in softer colors.  However, eating in this outfit gave me major anxiety! I was positive my pastel assemble would become a spotted mess after dinner...  But like a big girl I managed to keep my outfit clean :)

Ohh this is SO pretty - love the soft colors, definitely something soothing about it! I would have to cover myself in napkins when I eat whenever I wear pale colors :)

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

So pretty! I don't own many pastels, only because I have a dark skin tone and I feel like I look better in brighter colors.

Kultur und Stil said...

these pastel colors and the white pants look wonderful on you, i wish I could wear an "allover" light outfit like this, but I really tried to do something similar, but I always end up looking really pale...

Yay for staying clean! Wearing non-blue jeans definitely makes you notice the floating stains in the world! I like these pieces so much, especially the jeans and shoes!
