Pastel Outfit Details
My mom and I both have a tendency to gravitate towards dark colors. Black is such a timeless color that when presented the choice between a black dress and a pink dress, more often than not I go for the black one. This was especially evident to me last weekend when I cleaned out my closet and counted way too many black dresses. Although you're more likely to see me in a grey tee than in a red top, I do love pastel outfits in the spring.
Last year, mint really had a moment and I'm still loving it this year. When I saw this top at Banana Republic a few weeks back I fell in love with it because it was the perfect shade of mint and the detail on the back made it really stand out from the other sleeveless blouses I had seen.
As summer quickly approaches, challenge yourself to wear a color that's not your default. If you usually wear brights, try an all over neutral look and if you like darker shades try a pastel tank with white denim or a fun print.
