I'm going to go out there and say, I'm not much of a pastels person. It's not that I don't like them (mint green 4eva), I just don't naturally gravitate towards more than one pastel piece at a time. The thing is, pastels go together like strawberries and cream. Pastels are meant to be together. Pastels are the Romeo and Juliet of colour combinations.
I was inspired by Rihanna's style here (I probably shouldn't link to that, my legs will never forgive me) and I wanted to create a similar look from what I already had in my wardrobe but in a more casual way.
I think the lip colour and statement necklace is what makes this look work. I shy away from pastel overload normally because pale colours aren't as flattering. While these pale wash jeans are hardly the most flattering I own, I reckon I can just about get away with it and I surprised myself with how much I like this simple outfit.
