I have a soft spot for pastels in wintery outfits. People usually go for greys and blacks during the dark days, but I think colors and pastels can look great all year round if you combine them the right way: f.e. not mint + all dark colors, but a more harmonious combination of darker and lighter shades. I think this outfit would've failed with opaque black tights, but the sheerness of these lacy ones provides a more gradual transition between the lighter shades and my black booties. My sis took these pictures btw, this is the slightly celebratory outfit I put together for her bday.
I've been slowly getting excited about the sales: I've been keeping away from shopping and buying for a while because it feels ridiculous to buy items full price now if they'll be marked down in two weeks time. Coincidentally, this mindset has helped me resist impulse buys (even cheap stuff). I'll probably put together a sales wishlist one of these days to share with you guys, like I did in the summer sales. I noticed my wishlist being a majorly important tool to rationalize my shopping and thus my wardrobe, so I can't recommend it enough. Because, let's face it, we all have more than enough crap already, so why add more to that pile? The older I get, the more I'm feeling quality>quantity.
How do you feel about pastels in wintertime? Excited about the sales?
