C is for Challenge accepted!
I love a good fashion challenge, so when I saw that the t+j designs blog was hosting a trends challenge, I knew I was up for it. But here’s the thing…this month’s trend? It’s pastel. And that’s truly a challenge for me.
I love pastels. Are you kidding me? They are so soft, pretty, feminine. I grew up in ballerina pink and later joined a pink sorority. Pastels have followed me my entire life. And I love them.
But they aren’t always super flattering. I have fair skin, especially this time of year! And a pastel styled the wrong way can really wash me out.
So, this was a challenge.
A challenge I accepted.
I chose pastel blue. I pulled an aqua cardigan from my drawer and began to experiment. I considered a navy button down, toyed with the idea of a burnt orange top, but ended up really driving it home with this bright red blazer.
I like it!
Challenge = successful!
Do you accept fashion challenges?
How would you wear pastel this spring?
