Hi guys! Here’s yesterday’s comfy Sunday look-I just wanted to be comfy but I still wanted to rock my new TopShop pinafore dress. We went for an amazing Sunday walk with the pup and BF, after I spent the morning brunching with two of my favorite girls, Riley (@lifeofrileyrose) and Dacotah (@dacotahbaksh)- it was such a beautiful Sunday here- Bermuda truly never seizes to amaze me!
I love pinafore dresses but make it pink and velvet I most definitely have to have it. I’m sure you would all agree when we first heard velvet was coming back, we thought it wouldn’t stick around- am I wrong? It would just be a trend that passes quickly and isn’t seen for years later again, did anyone else have that feeling? (Think we might have been wrong- looks like velvet is here to stay even through upcoming seasons as we are already starting to see.) It’s one of my favorite things to see when an old trend comes back and really sticks around! When I wear velvet I tend to like to keep the rest of my outfit minimal- i love how velvet is somehow always a good statement all on its own! That’s why I kept it simple when pairing this super cute pink pinafore dress from TopShop (find them here) with a plain black T and some super simple black glove booties. When it comes to wearing colour, I struggle. I know where I stand with black, white and grey and that’s why I love soft pastel colors like this pink- it makes wearing colors a lot easier and really quirks up a boring all neutral outfit.
Having a mostly all black wardrobe, I tend to buy more things that go with what I currently wear- which basically means I’m still in that all black circle. While darker shades will probably always be my most loved, I am trying to add some more colour to my life like soft pinks like this super cute pinafore dress. Recently, I’ve been loving pastel tones alongside my usual favourites – tans, blacks, whites and greys.
For when I really can’t step away from my beloved neutrals I’ve got a couple of pairs of shoes and accessories in nudey-pastel shades. I know they are not necessarily bright statement pieces but when paired with similar colors you don’t look like your forever dressed like I’m in mourning or some sort of ninja. For Spring, I’m going to try and venture into more pastels.
What spring trends are you currently eyeing up? You know what I really can’t wait for is those velvet pink Joie slides that will be coming to atelerie this early spring that I featured in my last post. Here.
Hope everyone had an amazing weekend and I hope this was a pick me up from the Monday blue- thanks for checking in!
