Pretty Pastels



I'm normally not one for a matchy-matchy look with accessories, but sometimes it can be fun when balanced in just the right way with other modern pieces.  For example, I loved the colors of this statement necklace so much that I wanted to match it with items I had in my closet.  I added the textured bag to break up the coordinating hues & some cap-toe pumps for a dose of shine.  It turned out to be just the right mix of casual polish & was the perfect choice for my son's preschool graduation earlier this week.  If you're looking for affordable jewelry (like this gorgeous necklace I'm wearing), check out Statement Baubles - they have a great selection of designer-inspired pieces and everything is budget-friendly!





What I'm wearing:
Forever 21 top (here), H&M blazer (similar here or here) & jeans (similar here or here), Shoe Republic LA pumps (here), ModCloth bag (similar here or here), c/o Statement Baubles necklace (here) & bracelet (here), c/o Max & Chloe bracelet (here), Ray-Ban wayfarers (similar), Lips: L'Oreal Colour Caresse Cotton Pink

I love the light blue stripes on your top (so cute for Summer)! I tend to go for matchy-matchy jewelry because I find it difficult to layer pieces effortlessly. I'll definitely have to pay closer attention to your accessories for inspiration.

so love this outfit, and we'd look adorable together today because I'm wearing mint and pastel colors. Obsessed with this striped top in a crazy way for some reason. Didn't realize it was a tank... love. Man, you're making me want to me an F21 order!

Thanks for the tip, this website is awesome! I'm infatuated with pastels lately. I love mixing them with a touch of tan in a handbag or shoes like these "Shanae" sandals from CL by Laundry:
