PASTEL LOVE...









(everything thrifted from head to toe)
vintage pastel nautical stripe shorts, plain white tee, vintage crochet vest, vintage patent leather studded oxfords, vintage Colonial Times purse, clear circle sunnies, DIY headwrap, Forever 21/Buffalo Exchange rings, vintage henna hand necklace, vintage strawberry wooden tree necklace and vintage bangles/watch
Aaaaaaaah summer's here! Get out all the girly colors! I am freakin out over pastels. Being dark skinned makes all the soft colors, POP! Now this outfit started off with my shoes! I just DIE for them. There from the 50s/60s. Love the studs, color and the round toe! Then I found the shorts, I was like "I know who's getting married??" (You guessed it.) I'm obsessed with ANYTHING crochet(dress, vest, pants...)so I threw it over a plain white v-neck. Slouched it out. LOTS of jewelry, round sunnies, Colonial Times purse and vintage boho necklaces! BUH-BAM, PASTEL LOVE! Taking something sooooo simple and give it a little PUNCH! If you haven't noticed, I DON'T DO SIMPLE! I've tried, I still look over the top! I wish I had time to talk but I've gotta make dinner for my boys! I will say THAAAAAANK YOU and welcome to each and every one of you! New and old! If I didn't have the push from you guys to do better, I don't know where I'll be in the blog world! I am truly thankful!
xoxo Virgin

Sick, sick, sick and sick! The "vintage henna hand" is actually a chamsa, which is a Jewish symbol to ward off evil and bad spirits. They come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and prints.

I LOVE this post!! I did a post hating on pastels awhile back because I'm pasty-skinned and they just look WRONG on me, but you've just about made me change my mind! I love how you are open to trying anything and are naturally over the top, it makes me want to ditch work and play dress-up all day =)

Cool bag. I like this outfit, it's quirky.

Becca Jane said...

I love this whole outfit! So inspiring. I'm loving the colours especially. I wish I could do pastels better, I have such pasty skin they make me look pretty sickly most of the time.

I LOVE your shoes!
