Pastels

From prom dresses to NYFW runway, pastels have taken over trend lists on major fashion magazines, websites and blogs. I am no exception. And even though neutrals will always be my first love, pastels are now borderline obsession in my wardrobe and makeup bag at the moment.

I will be honest, the coat and the purse are not thrifted. I got the coat from SheInside.com through their blogger program and I immediately knew it would be perfect for this post. It did though come with two biggest ugliest black snaps that I’ve ever seen. Those were the first ones to go. Then I cut off the tag, no one would be able to read and sound out what the brand was called anyways. I never had much luck ordering from Chinese websites, even when it was sent to me for free. But this coat is a keeper. Though I am kind of anxious to see what’s going to happen to it in the wash. 

My olive/beige purse came from Madewell store at the Mall of America. I popped in after Macy’s Prom Fashion Show, and just couldn’t leave without it. The bag is reversible, made out of vegan leather (and it’s actually Free People), and comes with an oversized clutch and a small key pouch. All that for $69 + tax. I was hooked. 

Everything else is thrifted though. I promise. 

Are you following trends? If so, what do you think of pastels? Are you incorporating them into your wardrobe?
