I put together an outfit the other day for a client who had a cocktail party to attend. We decided on a really pretty light blue top and paired it with some gorgeous statement earrings in pastel pink. Pastels have made a big comeback this spring and this pairing got me thinking about how much I like small and subtle nods to most trends rather than full-on embracing them. It makes you look so much more on top of things rather than just... trendy.
I love both of these outfits. But the first one requires most people to go out and purchase a lot of the pieces since you probably didn't have most of them in your closet. The second look is more about how to add to your wardrobe carefully. The other stuff may well have been already in there. All you had to do was pick up the mint green jeans!
