Dreamy pastels are something I've been wanting to incorporate into my closet more and they suit the laid back and relaxed spirit of California rather well in my opinion! I wanted to put together a look that was inspired by the springs and summers in California because quite frankly, I have had enough of the winter cold! I got this watercolor print blouse from The Editor's Market, and when I noticed that they also had this pastel bag, they were literally calling out to be worn together, don't you think? I've never seen anything like this purse which is why I immediately fell in love with it :)
For the classic California touch, I wore my shredded denim shorts because they always make me think of the beach. And to round out the overall color palette, I added this neutral colored jacket from ShopAkira. I admit that I mainly wanted this jacket because I loved the fitted cut paired with the pointed shoulders in Pepper's white suit jacket in the Iron Man 3 trailer. Fit honestly makes all the difference in the world––it's a bit tougher for me to find jackets that fit tightly in the sleeves because my arms are kind of noodle-like (not sure how else to describe them haha) and most sleeves that are intended to be fitted, still look baggy on me. So when I come across a jacket that fits me like this, it's definitely an awesome find!
I hope everyone is having a pleasant start to their week too :) Thanks as always for taking the time to read my posts and to leave your kind comments! I'm also in an extra-good mood today because I found out that I was accepted to the Otis College of Art and Design! Woohoo!!
