outfit: whimsical pastels

April 15, 2014

pastels // the average girl's guide Do you have pieces in your wardrobe that when you first saw them in the store you were totally iffy, or maybe your friend forced it on you? When I saw this floaty blouse, I couldn’t decide. The color is pretty, but I never grab for it, and I’ve been loving these cool open details on blouses, but as a shorter gal (I’m 5’3), the longer tunic-style left me hesitant. Yet, turns out the semi-sheer, soft panel with the side panel are cool yet flattering.

I used to be really restrictive when it came to the fitting room; why try it on if I didn’t think it would work? But now, it’s the opposite: encouraging you to take in there with you a few pieces out of your comfort zone. Costs you nothing and maybe one time you’ll land on something pretty special. It’s especially fun at affordable spots because a fab find can lead you to discovering a new style or hue without the worry of wasting big money.
