Similarly with the neon challenge, I was a little apprehensive about styling pastels since you all know how keen I am on dressing in color. But I figured it could be a fun way to step out of my comfort zone & prep for Spring so I tried my damndest & whaddaya know? I’ve worn this pastel shift with that white vest more times than I’d care to admit over the last 2 weeks. Moral of the story: Don’t be afraid to venture outside your sartorial comfort zone.
The first look is my favorite for a girls’ night out or for a patio dinner outdoors since the weather has been stellar in DC recently. The strappy heel & white vest dress up this big pop of color without making an obnoxiously loud statement. It also doesn’t hurt that the dress + vest + heels were all under $100!
The second look is actually one my girl, Shell B, styled for an amazing project she’s working on; Talk about girl power. She dove into the closets of some of DC’s fashion bloggers to help style a ‘problem piece’ they’d always had issues styling. For me, it was these Rebecca Minkoff stunners. I’d worn them once at Fashion Week last Fall but they’ve been collecting dust on my shoe rack ever since. I’d try pairing them with shorts, pants, & dresses but I felt like an elf each time I’d look in the mirror. Thanks to Shell B, I now have a few great looks to wear these flats in! Pairing this pastel dress with a cargo vest & flats gives it a whole different vibe.
How do you wear your favorite pastels & florals in the summer?
