Pastels aren’t for everyone, although I think there’s an Easter egg shade flattering for every skin tone whether it’s powder pink or baby blue. I just arrived in San Francisco last week, but a few days before leaving Switzerland we snapped these pics in the country side.
I’m starting to realize depending on the clothes you wear in the 2nd trimester of pregnancy, you can make yourself look very pregnant or tone down the bump simply based on styling. Here’s a quick post from Switzerland with a few tips to give your outfit a pastel punch with a brand new giveaway and posts from California starting tomorrow…
< 1. Accessorize with a Scarf ~ Tie a pastel scarf around your neck or a handbag for an instant spring vibe>
<2. Pair Pastels with White or Ivory ~ Light shades tend to flow together and don’t shy away from pastel statement pieces like Altantic-Pacific’s recent post ‘Soft‘ where she paired a white tulle skirt with a lilac jacket and heels>
<3. Complement in Metallics ~ Metallic heels can neutralize a colorful outfit so whenever I’m stumped on what shoes to wear, I reach for a nude, gold or silver pair>
<4. Pastel Nails will Do the Trick ~ While my hair hasn’t grown like crazy since getting pregnant, my nails are much healthier so I’m loving the new OPI ‘Hawaii Collection‘ and this old lilac shade by LVX>
Are pastels making an appearance in your wardrobe this Spring? I’ll be back tomorrow with a bra confession and special giveaway!
