{Friday's Fancies} Pretty Pastels

The Trend: Pastels


I want to start out by saying THANK GOODNESS IT'S FRIDAY!!!!! I'm so excited for today's Friday's Fancies theme! It's inevitable that pastels reappear in our closets and on the runways during Spring every year. Some fashionistas fully embrace pastels with no fear of looking like an Easter egg, while others may be a little timid of this Springtime trend. Whichever end of the pastel spectrum you find yourself in is OK, but today I wanted to show how you can wear pastels without looking like a five-year old. 

For those scared of pastels try focusing on one pastel item, like a dress or a skirt. Instead of pairing pastels with MORE pastels, opt for neon accessories that can brighten up the light hue. I love the freshness a pop of neon can bring to an outfit. Or if you're wanting to wear that pretty little pastel dress for a girl's night out, throw on a leather jacket and studded heels and other accessories to keep your look edgy. No one will dare mistake you for a toddler in those studded mesh heels above!

Happy Friday!!!
