More Winter Pastels

Pastels remain hot for the wintertime. A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post featuring winter white and “Rose Quartz,” one of Pantone’s colors of the year. If you are still having trouble deciding which cotton candy hues to incorporate into your wardrobe, start with blush. Just like tan, brown, or ivory, blush can act as a neutral too. You can never own enough of those!





I’ll be the first to admit that wearing maxi length anything can be a bit of a challenge, if you were blessed with a petite frame. On the other hand, I’ll also admit that maxi length garments will effortlessly elongate your figure. So, rather than paying your tailor to chop off a foot of fabric, the next time you are in the market for a maxi skirt, search for a “midi” instead. That is how I scored the Contemporary Vented-Hem Midi Skirt from Forever 21! While it hits the 5′ 9″ model at her mid calf, it falls right below my ankles.






“Olive” this piece for many reasons, the first of which is the color, obviously! The hip hugging silhouette is very flattering, and the back slit screams sassy. Thanks to the high waist, I was able to style this skirt with a Lace Yoke Cropped Top, in my new favorite neutral, blush. I accessorized with blush hues, toting a metallic rose clutch, and rose gold rhinestone earrings. If you live in a winter wonderland, top this look with a sherpa jacket and swap out the high heels for tall boots.
