One gloomy day after the storm had passed, still in a sea of dark hues, I chose to wear pastel. It was my way of coming out from the dark days, almost kind of like what I'm going through right now. Life imitating art?
I'm all for dark hues as of late--a huge leap from my obsession with white. Although, even though I still AM obsessed with white clothes, the season just makes it feel even more fit to wear darker hues like blue, green, and red; some browns and blacks as well.
But when I got a hold of this lovely, dainty knitted greyish blue piece from my mom, I was inspired. I felt compelled to build a look around here. So, on I went to raid my closet and found two pieces I could easily match with the greyish blue top.
A thick, cotton skater skirt and my Bensimon sneakers (also available at CommonThread). Pairing these two with the top gave me a dainty, youthful feel. So, I thought, why not add quirky accessories, too?
