The Power of Pastels
Yesterday was a perfect day for sporting pastel colors. It was grocery shopping day and to add some life to an otherwise dull event, I decided the only sensible solution was to look cute. In this outfit, it literally makes me glow because it’s so bright with pastel colors and the sun reflecting off of them!
Like I’ve said in previous posts, in my town you can go pretty much anywhere in sweats or jeans and a t-shirt. I still like to dress up a little more because it’s good for my mental health and self-confidence.
For this outfit, I’m wearing a New York & Company pastel purple top, white J Crew shorts, Rampage sandals, gold Aldo ring, and a New York & Company necklace. Everything I found on clearance in the past year. I can’t guarantee that these things are still available so I’ve found a few other items that are comparable and affordable.
My biggest tip though? Wait for everything to be cut down to at least 50% off. I never buy full priced items unless it’s a staple piece that I want to last for a really long time. With tops and jewelry like what I’m wearing, you can afford to be a little more picky with how much you spend because before you know it the trend will be over and you didn’t waste a lot of your money.
