pink party continues

IMG_4192

Seriously, you cannot get me out of pastels lately, especially pink (see my last post re: my previous aversion to pastels). Maybe blush pink is the marsala of spring? Either way, I’m loving the lightness that you feel when in light colors. Now I’m just waiting for mother nature to show us the first blooms of spring…

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I’m predominately focused on pink pastel right now, which makes it especially easy to mix and match pieces. This pink top would also look great with pastel pink pants, a pink skirt, or white pants. I’ve noticed the monochromatic looks are very popular this spring, which makes getting dressed basically easy as can be! I recommend focusing on a one color and then mixing and matching within that color, if you are looking for easy ways to get dressed in the morning. 
2) As odd as it sounds, I’ve been practicing “eye-balling” sizes when shopping in person. For some reason, I really struggle with sizing solely through looking at a piece. As much as I highly recommend trying everything on in a stores, many thrift and charity shops don’t have dressing rooms. Thus, I’ve been practicing in department stores: picking out pieces that “look like they would fit,” and then trying them on. I’ve found that this has really helped me in thrift stores when trying on pieces is simply not an option. 
I wanted to thank everyone for the tips on shoe stretching! I’ll be working on it this weekend and will report back! I hope everyone has a great weekend. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Looks great! Here’s hoping for spring to actually show up to work with those pastel pinks. Can’t stand this crazy weather. You look wonderful as always! xo

  2. I love this look! This is a great way to ‘winterize’ pastels when the weather has yet to warm up. This post is really timely too; I’ve been obsessed with finding a blush pink dress!

  3. Yes, monochromatic does seem to be gaining momentum at the moment. Which, although I have a lot of color in my wardrobe, I don’t know that I can quite pull of monochromatic without just reverting to neutrals. 😛

    Yay for eyeballing sizing! Practice makes perfect. Awesome that you are finding your skills are improving.

  4. I love how your locations and your outfits compliment each other perfectly. Do you scout for locations when you’re out and about or do you spontaneously set up and go? Hand in hand! xo
