Pastel Protest

Alright. Let it be known — I’m just not into winter. I think that I am every November and December but you know what? I’m calling it. I like spring clothes and colors and weather. It’s just my favorite time of the year and it’s hard to appreciate cold weather when you are counting down to spring. This of course is coming off an ice storm that shut us down for a few more days than I’d like and two cancelled flights for one of my best friends to come visit me over the weekend. When you keep me from my best friend, you’re dead to me, Winter. 
So yes I’m in pastels again. It’s my silent protest of winter and my plea for spring to show. I’ve got skirts to wear and patios to eat on. March, I’m counting on you. 
How was your weekend? We decided to open shop on Friday and Saturday despite the ice and snow. We were just glad to not be cooped up in the house — I’d much rather be cooped up inside a pretty boutique than a slightly always messy house. We are shooting for online today up at the shop so I needed something easy to run around and be bossy in. Pink pants and power blazer it is then. (My form of bossy is actually pretty tame and usually precedes a ‘please and thank you.’)

    Protest on, girlfriend! I'm over this DFW winter too! My protest involves drinking wine in front of warm fire while I binge-watch the new season of House of Cards. Maybe I'll wear pastel tonight as a sign of unity.

    Exactly like spring personified. I feel I would like it more if it doesn't feel like an extension of summer here

    I'd look a bit silly to wear an outfit of this in Toronto right now, but I'll just live through your Texan outfits for now. All of the snow and slush would totally splash up and ruin those pretty pants. *sigh*

    Loving this look so much!

    That scarf is so so pretty, really nice with the striped blazer! πŸ™‚ I bought a pastel blue scarf to see me though winter last year, it's nice wearing pastel colours despite the cooler weather.

    Hope it warms up for you soon – and that your friend was able to reschedule!

    Hi Kendi, while I've never actually commented on any posts, I'm a true follower. Every. Single. Day. I love your beautifully inspiring clothing posts and your subtle touch of sarcasm. Which is why I'm sharing a link about the weather (snow for us here in Boston, LOTS of it). Check out "A Breakup Letter to Snow from the city of Boston." You'll appreciate the humor!
