Pretty in Pastel
I love how when it shoots up to 50 degrees here (or close to it)—people are walking around with no coats on, in shorts, like it's the middle of July. I guess that's what it feels like when the temperature has been in the teens, all the way down to minus 30, for the past few months. I was inspired by the warmth, and the people super excited for spring to FINALLY be here, so I'm focusing on a trend that seems to make its way back every spring: pastels. I'm not one to wear a lot of color, especially lighter and/or brighter colors, but this year I am going to try to incorporate some pastels into my wardrobe and share with you some of the cutest items in this pastel trend.
1. Mango // Sequin Sweatshirt in Pastel Grey // $57

I threw that ampersand sweater in there because a) I thought it was super cute and b) light gray is a great neutral color to pair with any pastel to balance out the look.
Here is a pastel-inspired outfit from my own closet.

Pastel Paisley Jeans // American Eagle
Nude Wedge Shoes // DSW
Necklaces // American Eagle
Nude Bralette // Aerie
I went on a hunt yesterday after work to find some pastel nail polish. Here are the three beauties I added to my collection:
F21 has AMAZING nail polish. I have never had a problem with them bubbling or chipping, and they're under $3 each—yes please!
Pastels will be HUGE this spring, so give this trend a try. Whether it's on your fingertips or from your head to your toe, be pretty in pastel!
