Pastels on the Playground

 

Happy Palm Sunday! Yesterday was such a glorious and beautiful day to celebrate my Lord & Personal Savior all while shouting “Hosanna!” We were blessed with 72 degree weather in NYC but I was really uncomfortable and hottttt! I’m thinking I should probably reserve my summer weather excitement…

I’m actually loving the pastel color trend. It’s fun. It’s chic. It’s sexy. It’s bold. It’s everything a girly girl needs! My favorite part about the trend is finding pastel items in my closet I either, didn’t know I had, or just didn’t think I liked very much. An example is this Banana Republic blouse. It’s been in my closet for many years (don’t know how, actually, as I never purchased it) and never worn! Not only is the pastel blue so flattering but the scalloped edges are so in trend right now! Double win for Auntie Christie!

I will be traveling this summer so I decided to start stacking on floppy hats. I actually bought this Forever 21 floppy hat to pair with my new pink Zara heels but it actually worked well with this pastel look!

Meet my girlfriend Isabella! Isabella and I share much more than laughs in common. Not only is she super selfless, but it helps that she’s a fashionista like me! 85% of the time we’re discussing shoes, the other 15% of the time we’re discussing new trends. She is soooo lucky I can’t fit a size 35 shoe! Her shoe collection would’ve been raided by last year. She’s the woman behind the lens many  times. Thank you girl! Love you to pieces!IMG_1865

You’ve seen this Coach bag on Auntie’s blog before. I mentioned how much I used to hate white bags. Clearly not anymore! How cute is the green bow on the handle?

It’s all about DETAILS! Can you believe my earrings were $1??? I bought them from a jewelry store that was going out of business.
