Pastel in Print

When choosing an outfit for my link-up with longdistanceloving, I had to choose carefully. When done in moderation, pastels are pretty. When done in excess, one could resemble a misshapen Easter egg.


Paired with neutral colors, sky high heels, and gold hardware, floral mint jeans make a statement without the overall effect being too juvenile.

I couldn't resist playing around with a different pastel shade on Polyvore. Bring on the baby pink!

Print and Pink




What pastel shade is your favorite to wear? I find purple to be the most universally flattering.

Happy Easter!

Love that jacket! And that you paired it with black. I'm definitely doing the same since it's still so chilly here!

I love pastels of almost any color, but favorite is probably pink or blue. Love those printed pants!

I flipping love these shoes; so hot with the military coat. Normally I would agree with you about pastels, but did you see the gag-inducing pastel ensemble I created this weekend on IG haha? I really went overboard #sorrynotsorry
