look book: pastel paradise

February 13, 2012


 I can't help but smile when I wear pretty pale colors. I felt a little bit like a giant Easter egg, but in a good way! 
I'm ready to welcome spring in head to toe pastels! Who's with me?

  23. Those pants are so pretty on you...and I'm loving the pastels too. The mustard clutch kinda ties them down and keeps them from being over the top...instead they are super flattering to you!

  38. I'm definitely the first one on the pastel train! Every winter I get tired of dark colours and long for lighter ones, but this year it goes beyond that and I can't get enough of pastel colours! So it's no surprise that I think this outfit is absolutely INCREDIBLE: stylish, (what looks to be) comfortable and pastel coloured is all I'm dreaming about these days, and your pictures will surely go into my inspiration folder. Now if just spring would decide to join us... :P

  41. The color in your nails is gorgeous! What is it?

  42. It is simple but attractive enough to grab the eyes. The jacket and top looks awesome on sky coloured jeans. This seems to be a perfect outfit for casual wearing or for formal wearing also.
