{How to Wear} Late Spring Trends: Pastels

Pastels are definitely a recurring trend each spring--which may mean they aren't actually a "trend" and more like a "go-to"....like wearing boots in the winter, pastels are kind of a fashion necessity for spring.  A splash of peach, mint green, or pale yellow paired with your everyday jeans is a super simple way to update your wardrobe for warmer months, but to make it more fun, I wanted to try a full-on pastel look.
This menswear inspired linen button up shirt is the perfect amount of structure to pair with a feminine, flowy midi length skirt.  I toughened up the look a bit with leather sandals and a boxy, quilted bag with a heavy chain strap.  Final touches include a super skinny braided belt and brass jewelry (dangly earrings, cocktail ring, bangles).

light pink button up- Ralph Lauren (thrifted), white cami- Target, braided nude belt- H&M, midi swing skirt-vintage (buy it HERE), sandals- Candies (from forever ago), quilted bag- Kohl's

This skirt is from the shop (click link above to view full details)!  It is fully lined (yay for no slip required!) but still lightweight enough for summer.  I would love to keep it for myself, but am being super generous and keeping it up for sale so you can make it yours!
