Spring Bright Pastels
Bright pastel? Probably not the best descriptor since something can't be pastel and bright at the same time since the definition of pastel is "soft and pale" regarding colors. But you feel me here, right? That classic yellow, blue, pink combination with white as a grounding color evokes Spring like nothing else can. It reminds me of lambs and chicks playing under a bright blue sky. Ok, that's a stretch.
My vision of this outfit and the reality of it were not meshing. This particular yellow shirt is very long, almost a tunic. So when I don't have my hands in my pockets it hangs down very low and loose, creating a very big color block that wasn't what I had imagined. On a taller girl, it would have been great, but I didn't like it on me. So I tucked it all in. I think I like it better that way, plus I got to show a pop of pink from the belt.
I can't decide. Tell me what you think...shirt in or out wins the day?
