I often get the question “so when did this whole pastel thing start anyway?”, and without fail it always makes me smile.
Through there were times when a desire to fit in overtook my quirky, colourful sense of style and I turned monochrome, I’ve pretty much always had fun with my style. In high school I garnered a lot of attention for my all-pink outfits (there was one chord Betsey Johnson number in particular…) and I distinctly remember a time when I looked into my closet and noted I owned something in every single colour category.
As a result of a personality/style crisis in my early 20s that involved a lot of black and white, I’m still working on building my colour inventory back up. That said, there’s no denying that I love me some head to toe pink! This outfit from Pale Violet is one of my favourite things to wear right now, and I couldn’t resist slipping it on for a little impromptu fashion shoot (note: there are lots of these coming down the pipe. I took a break from fashion for awhile but lately I’m feeling really inspired again and I’m loving it!)
