Muted pastels

Today’s outfit is different from my typical spring-is-coming getup. I lean toward darker, richer colors in fall and winter, and in spring and summer, I lean toward bright colors. I’ve always shied away from pastels during spring because of the tendency they have to look like Easter egg colors. However, this jacket made me change my mind (even if the pastel is slightly muted). Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s
Blouse: Borrowed from my roommate
Denim: Gap
Booties: Target
Bag: Target
Earrings: Gift
Ring: LOFT

Nothing says spring like soft, lighter colors, and while this isn’t my typical outfit,  it’s muted enough to be sophisticated without looking like a piece of Easter candy. The softness to everything in this outfit, from the silkiness of the blouse to the subtle color of the jeans, might just dictate my spring wardrobe this year.
