Pale Pastels


I can always tell when I have a busy week at the shop and I’ve neglected snapping outfit shots because I get texts from friends asking if I’m okay. So just so you know, I am okay just busy. But not the kind of busy that you want to brag about to people, no it’s the kind of busy that no one cares to hear about. You know when you have one of those week’s at work and you are just swamped and everywhere you turn there is something else on your plate? And you talk to your friends on the phone or at happy hour you are trying to tell them or really anyone who is listening just how busy you are and then people stop listening after 30 seconds because it’s boring? That’s the kind of busy I am right now. Did you want to hear about data entry and editing photos for a new collection? No? Well then I shall lie to you and tell you I’ve been filming a movie this week and that is why the lack of outfits. Just so busy. Miss you, love you. 

I don’t want to be one of those people that constantly wishes for the next season to start, but honestly this outfit serves the purpose of willing spring to happen. I have this one dress that I’m dying to wear but it’s just still too cold for bare legs and I will be damned if I put tights on again. But today I don’t care if it’s still chilly outside, I will dress for spring. The downside to this choice is that it’s chilly outside and my sweater has holes in it. This might have been a wrong move. And by might I mean definitely.

    Super cute. This is one of my favorite color pallets! And I have been working on taxes (blerg) so I know what you mean.. As soon as I say the word 'taxes', my friends zonk out. Not blaming them.

  5. I love it!  Great color palette.  I am *that* kind of busy right now too, and I'm right there with ya on the boring factor.  Er, I mean…the movie I'm filming is going to be divine.  Simply divine.

  29. I can never get enough of pastels and I love the way you incorporated the two pastels together. It makes me think of spring and warmth! Outfit snapshots are always so great to see and such an inspiration for my own outfits day to day. StyleUp helps with that by sending users a daily e-mail with the weather forecast and an idea for an outfit that suits the weather. Pretty neat, if you ask me!

    We've had summer temps in Florida the past few weeks. The last few weekends were spend by the pool and at the beach soaking up the sun, but not this weekend. It's going to be in the 60's, which is so strange. My brain and body gets so confused with the weather constantly changing from Summer-Spring-Winter all within a few days but I am going to welcome this weather and hopefully wear my winter clothes for the last time this season.

  59. This is a very sweet outfit. I totally understand what you are talking about too. There are days I really want to just complain about the mondain things that I have to do in life, but I know no one wants to hear about them. That's why there is a blogging world, you can just put it out there and press send. It helps a little bit.

    Ahoj, ráda bych tě pozvala na svůj blog :). Předem podotýkám, že mi nejde o reklamu, ale o to, aby se o problematice, které se na svém webu věnuju, dozvědělo co nejvíce lidí a poučilo to tak laickou veřejnost, která je většinou jen plna předsudků. Blog je věnován poruchám příjmu potravy a hlavně boji s těmito nemocemi. Nehodlám se řadit k thinspo nebo podobným komunitám. Na blogu najdeš i trochu z cesty mým životem, každodením bojem s PPP, ale také spoustu rad a tipů týkajících se kosmetiky, fotek, článků o mně samé, beauty vychytávky, recenze, recepty, které nikde jinde nenajdeš a mnoho dalšího. Kdyby tě blog zaujal, budu moc ráda, když zanecháš komentář nebo se můžeš stát dalším z mých ctěných "followers". Budu se moc těšit na tvou návštěvu a přeji krásný zbytek dne. Andie :)*
