pastel sweaters

While I’m in a warm state of Western Australia,  there are still places that are facing a spring like chill. With the colder weather in full force it can make it difficult to get into the summer time heat.
Recently, I’ve seen in stores bright and pastel colors to welcome in the warmer seasons. So, I figured a fun way to dress for the cold and still get into the spring/summer mood is by pastel sweaters.
Notably, the best item I’ve seen to capture the look is a pastel sweater. Not only are sweaters offered in several styles, but they come in multitudes of color. A cute baby blue, lavender, or princess pink can do wonders for ringing in the floral bloom. Best of all these sweaters can keep you warm while you add accessories.
To achieve this look simply, add pastel colored sweater to your outfit. Then  pair it with a neutral color. The contrast in colors can provided a soft and delicate look that supports soft-hue lighting.  This reflects a more muted look than the primary colors utilized in winter months.
When matching with pastel colors I normally “color block” with a beige, grey, burgundy, or brown. Warm weather seasons are months of fun for me, so I tend to add a print into the mix. Due to the colder weather I would spice up the look with warmer bottoms or shoes. For an example: leopard printed skirt, polka dot pants, floral leggings, or striped heels can add a great splash of excitement to any outfit. The mix print also contrast nicely with the outfit.
In the style set shown below I paired a pastel sweater with an animal print skirt. I then accessorize with pastel heels and hair clips. To neutralize or block I added a beige hand bag to do the trick.

Professional Pink

In a classic business setting most people stick to neutral colors. Normally a dark plain blazer and matching pants. Likewise, the undershirt is a grey, white, or light blue blouse. The neutral colors indicate a form of salaried workers. The bottoms, pants or skirts, are to be crisp and straight down.
Recently, I saw a few lighter colored blazers in an accessory shop. Due to my affinity for the color pink I found it adorable. My only struggle was how to make this blazer business casual.
My veterinary courses require a blue-color dress code on Fridays. So, I decided to test out my outfit for the day. I paired my double buttoned pink blaze,r from Versona, with a simple flair skirt, I got from H&M. I also have a lace pink top from Anthropologie.
I then accessorizes my outfit with pieces from Primark. I attached a velvet bow to the lace trim of my top. I added a pink floral hair pins to push my hair back. For shoes I kept the professional trend and wore black round toe heels. However, for after class I added my pair of feathered light pink glitter pumps.
The outfit was a stretch out of my normally work wear or business professional attire, yet it made me stand out from all the other uniform looks. Work wear can still be chic and cute. The professional pink look was a go that I would repeat again.
Down below, I attached an outfit set and links. Listed below is wear you can find similar items to my professional pink outfit.

Accessories For Less {Under $20}

I’m an accessory oriented person. I believe it make something simple extraordinary. For an instance I’m all about rompers and dresses just because they are easy to wear and throw on. For a person who is normally decked out in scrubs simplicity in outfits is great because its related to the non-complex style of doctoral wear.

Due to this, I normally need to spice up my outfits so they are stationed in a plain mundane wardrobe. Accessories were they easy fix to stylizing my outfits. They allow me to make bold statements and expand my creativity.

Ever since I was a child I’ve been obsessed with scarves. They are versatile so you can use them for there purpose, a necklace, head-wraps, or headbands. Likewise, I’m a huge supporter of hats. You have more fashionable cuts, basic caps, and beanies. There’s hats for every season and they all add a special flare to dresses. Similarly, glasses add an extra effect. Sunglasses provide a warm and vibrant vibe, while reading or nerd glasses provide an educated cute persona. Notably, gloves enable a person to look edgy with leather or pristine with lace. So, an accessory can create excitement in any outfit.

As a college student most my money goes towards school supplies and the rest normally goes to animal oriented events, programs, and trips. So, I only have a few to spend on myself. With that it has taught me to look for cheaper items. Thus, I decided to share my favorite accessories under $20 usd. Lots of these items are under $5 which is amazing.

Fall Fashion Weekly Finds


I will be posting my personal wardrobe fall trends throughout the season. This week my fall outfit is a simple black tank top and faux suede skirt.

Black tank tops are a necessity for any wardrobe. Fabric in the color hides any stains, looks flattering on anyone, and exhibits a mature look. During autumn months school is back in session and work progressively peaks, so an allure of maturity is needed. The basic black tank top provides a feminine look that is flattering. Basic tank tops also possess the ability to mask cheaper clothes. The tank top is also a great way to subtly accessorize. In addition, a black tank top is always in style.

Notably, I paired the fashion staple with a faux suede skirt. The skirt was a little more embellished than the tank top, having a circular cut fabric pattern at the bottom. The skirts adornment made the outfit look more trendy and entertaining. Suede skirts are perfect for fall to because of the tan and brown color schemes the inhibit.

Similarly, to finish my outfit I needed the perfect pair of shoes. I choose to pair my clothes with a pair of fringe suede ankle boots.

I choose this outfit as my first fall outfit because it is one that I frequent a lot. It is perfect for any autumn occasion.
