lighten up

I have decided that I don’t have enough pastels in my life – strange because it always evokes such a fresh, effortless style that I love. Although the cooler months often call for more saturated hues, I am quite enamored by the thought of light colors against fallen snow (totally am getting ahead of myself, but it’s a nice thought). I went a little texture crazy in this outfit with wool, small sparkles, and yummy baby pleats. But I like how everything works quite harmoniously, and provides a greater depth that might deserve a longer glance.

  1. Eeeee! I am so obsessed with these F21 heels. They are sold out as of now, sadly. Shame on me for not getting them when I wanted them.

    Love the mixed patterns, as always and the coat.

    XOXO, always!

  8. I have loved the popularity of pastels over the last few seasons, they certainly create a whimsical impact, something of the unknown. Fab shorts.

    Adore the last two photos, the lighting is lovely. Your blog keeps getting better hunny, love reading it.
