As a representative of the girlie girls, I love swimming in a sea of pastel colors. I believe that pastel colors and I have something in common. While my character is indecisive, pastel colors could not decide if they want to be whites or if they want to be light colors, so they just got stuck in between. My first dive in these lovely hues was by pairing this mint ZARA jacket and peach Ann Taylor sweater with a soft pink pair of jeans from Target. Some of my other favorite pastels are lavender, primrose yellow, baby blue, and jade green. The best pairing for pastel colors, in my opinion, are other pastel colors. That is why, in my search for work alternative styling ideas for this peachy/salmon skirt, I defaulted to this baby blue pink top from ZARA. And if there was any doubt about the femininity of this outfit, the navy blue ribbon of the skirt dissipated it completely.
