Pastel Perfect

I know, it’ s not spring yet but being in the midst of a gloomy winter in Melbourne has had me dreaming about the pastels. The beautiful water-colored palette that comes out to play when the sun is out and the flowers are in bloom.

It’s got me thinking about how I can see a glimpse of their beauty, within a sea of dreary days. I’m not sure what it’s like in your corner of the world, but from where I am, I’m seeing a whole lot of people dressed in black on black on black on black on black. On black.

It would almost seem that everyone was mourning summer, and it doesn’t help that the wind has a mean chill to it either. So I got to thinking about how I can bring a little bit of sunshine to my cold winter days, and here are my 4 tips below, with some shopping inspiration (of course!).

Wear a pretty pastel scarf! Believe it or not, but anything goes with a black outfit, so bring out the colours in your accessories. Dress up your phone case! Seriously, why not give your phone a cute outfit that has a pop of color in it, or better yet; a pastel print! Bring out the pastel shirts! Paired with an A-line black skirt or some tailored pants, you’ll bring some brightness to your look. Accessories! Wearing a coral blue necklace, a lavender headband or some mint green earrings will lighten up your look and your mood!
