Pastels in Winter, whaaaat?

It’s 2018, and people are still holding onto those traditional rules of fashion. “Don’t wear white after Labor Day, no bright colors in winter”.

Where is it written that we HAVE to wear dark colors in winter?

Wherever it is, throw the whole book away ๐Ÿšฎ

Just last week my mom was freaking out about a wearing a dress because it was too bright.

I personally feel as if bright colors should purposely be worn in winter. I think the colors will liven your spirits as most of us are already salty about the cold.

With anything, it’s not what you wear but how you wear it.

Make your winter wardrobe pop with some pastels. Wear that pastel peacoat over your favorite turtle neck, dark wash denim, and a fly bootie.

With your personal style, your winter pastel possibilities are endless.

The dress featured in this post, I’ve owned since November 2016. It was originally purchased to wear to the Formation World Tour. ( Check out that experience here ) Thanks to a mix up, it was delivered the day of, and I had to scramble for an alternate, as the dress would be delivered while I was en route to the show.

As a person who would wait for a special occasion to wear items in my wardrobe, I’m telling you to WEAR YOUR PIECES. The occasion may never come, so wear them.

Bottom line, wear what you want, when you want, how you want.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to play dress up. There’s something about putting outfits together and prancing around in them that makes me happy. It’s kind of weird because I’m not a girly woman or a tomboyish woman, I’m somewhere in the middle.

Nonetheless, I love styling myself and other people. I know there are certain fashion trends everyone follows, but being able to style in-spite of trends is not something everyone can do.

Little known fact, I’ve always wanted to be a stylist. I’m not really sure why I’ve never told anyone that, but strangely enough people are always asking me to help them create a look or find pieces for them.

As a believer in the law of attraction, I’ve decided to run with this. There’s a reason why I love to create various looks, and others have asked on several occasions to style them.

I’ve created a section on my blog called “Stylin“, and here I will post different style photos I take. So don’t be a stranger to that section.

Here in this post, I’ve included photos from a session I like to call In living color. The look was inspired by the kick off of Mardi Gras ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’› season and of course the 90s. The jacket pictured, is one my mom has had for as long as I can remember. It’s an ode to New Orleans, one of my favorite cities.

90s fashion is my passion, I love everything about it! Majority of my looks will have 90’s incorporated somehow.

So stay tuned! I’m low key excited about this new venture, who knows where it’ll lead. For now, I’ll just have fun with it. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
