Well, this month Sylvia at the 40+Style blog has a dressing challenge to see how we wear our “pastels.” I looked through my closet and realized I don’t have much, unless it is part of a floral. But I was lucky recently to find a dress very similar to one I already had from the same store - on super sale - and I basically input it into my no-fail formula of dark tights, belt and black blazer, as seen in this outfit post from last year. And I received many compliments today on the dress, too, even though the palette felt a bit foreign to me.
Pastels with black #madeinUSA outfit details: Geometric tribal print dress in peach/lavender dress from Francesca’s Collection; black blazer by Necessary Objects from Nordstrom Rack; patterned tights by Spanx from RueLaLa; Orange pochette by Clare Vivier; statement necklace by David Aubrey jewelry; Arrow bracelet by Young in the Mountains; curved bow cuff by Another Feather and black skinny belt by All Hands from Cedar & Hyde, Boulder
