The best thing about cleaning out your closet is:

1) the new found space (for your new additions)

2) money in forgotten pockets, and

3) something that was purchased years ago but happened to be trendy right now

This silky Bebe floral skirt was probably one of my all time favorite in 2010. It’s high-waisted (anyone who knows me know I love high-waisted anything), it’s floral (which I’m obsessed with), it has ruffles, drapes, pockets but best of all…it doesn’t “look” outdated one bit….I love to shop and buy new things but what’s important to me is being able to wear something more then once or twice, unique pieces that will last a long time.

I love a classic piece that can be paired in a variety of ways and this Zara leopard print skirt is just one I can wear over and over and over again. I mean literally because I pretty much wore it everyday this weekend (heyyy don’t judge! :).

Above, I wore it with an open back purple sweater for a night out with the girls on Friday and a green DVF blouse for a dinner date with friends on Saturday. Below, the same skirt was paired with something more casual for a day look.

“The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily do not rob the little violet of it’s scent nor the daisy of its simple charm. If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness.”  -St. Thérèse de Lisieux

Color Me Pastels

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

Pastels before spring?  Heck yea! Lilac, baby pink, sky blue, pale yellow, and spearmint are the quintessential color palette for springtime. Pastel colors are feminine, flirty and sophisticated which can also give off the feeling of ease and grace. Adding these accents has certainly perk up my winter wardrobe and got me a little more excited for sun-kiss weather (if you haven’t notice, I ‘m not a big fan of cold).

…But how do you wear Pastels?

Below are 3 looks I’ve created with a similar pair of high-waisted trousers via my polyvore page. Click on the templates below to get details on each item.

:: Pastels and the 3 B’s ::

Neutral tones complement pastels very nicely and while adding Brown and Beige balance out pastels, Black adds spunk to the delicate hues.


:: Pastels and Color-Blocking ::

Color-block pastels with black and white to add a touch of elegance, edge and jazz.


:: Pastels and Pastels ::

If your outfit consist mostly of pastels, be sure to add neutral tones to balance out the cotton candy colors and to avoid landing in the Easter egg territory.
