Aussie Curves: Pastel

So I don't seem to have a huge amount of pastel wear. One of the reasons I love hot pink is because it seems to bring out the glow in my skin, pastels in general seem to make me feel a bit blugh. A bit washed out? I do however have a bit of a stripe obsession  (or really any geometrically equal shaped prints!) so I was able to unearthed this beauty from the back of the wardrobe!




Top: City Chic
Skirt: No Exceptions
Brooch: Bunny Hornet
Necklace: Colette
Bracelet: Strawberry

I really like that the Aussie Curves posts are helping me look at my wardrobe in a new light. Sometimes all you need is that extra push to challenge yourself into styling your clothes in fresh ways. And even more so- taking your own style to new places.

I like to emphasize my waist and as such have quite a few of these almost bust sweeping skirts from No Exceptions. The style makes my somewhat apple shaped middle section look more hourglass. And the contrasting colors really help bring the whole 'illusion' together.






This kind of outfit can easily be stereotyped into that corporate-office look. The pastel adds a hint of cheekiness and the silver spikes punk it up a bit.

I had to add in this last shot- I am so in love with the view off my deck! ;)


I adore the little UFO brooch (another local-artist purchase from Bunny Hornet), it makes me smile every-time I look at it. THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE.

Do you wear pastel colours much?

  18. Love how you've styled the pastel shirt :) I don't have that many pastel pieces either, but it's because I'm too clumsy for many light coloured clothes! haha! Wore a white tee the other day and my clumsy self wore it when cooking dinner....yep it's stained now. Was only the second time I'd worn it too.... :P
