Pastel Power

Happy Hump Day everyone! Hope your week is going well so far!

In the past I wasn’t a fan of pastel colors mainly because of the “rule” that plus size women shouldn’t wear light colors. So being a good follower, I avoided pastels like the plague until now. A few weeks ago I was on Talbots website and they were having a 90% off (yes 90% off!) sale. The crop pants that were originally priced $79.50 were on sale for $7.50! I was like “oh yeah I’m getting these” but they only had my size in the light green color. For a second I hesitated but decided to get them anyway. Buying these pants was another step in breaking fashion rules that I’ve allowed to control my clothing choices. The pants are more of a spearmint green color which looks great with my yellow flutter sleeve blouse. The blouse is big on me so I belted it at the waist to give it shape. I added my chunky green necklace and sliver flats to round out the outfit.

Will you give pastel colors a chance this Spring? Have a great evening!

    Fab. That yellow is amazing. I’m a pastel princess. I don’t care if they said plus size can’t wear light colours. If you love it you’ll look good in it and you look beautiful!

    I’m not a pastel fan, but this looks lovely. I love the Talbots sales! The necklace is wonderful too. I really enjoy seeing what you’re wearing – your professional look is always on point. And the yellow – just divine!
