Pastels + Peplum

This post contains affiliate links.

Each month, I team up with some of my blogging buddies byBMG, Della Devoted, and What Nicole Wore for the How I Style It series–we all take one style idea and each put together an outfit based on it.  This month, the How I Style It girls have teamed up to show you how we’re styling pastels for SPRING!

Top: Old Navy // Jeans: Old Navy // Flats: Payless Shoe Source //  Crossbody: Kate Spade Outlet (similar under $100similar under $115similar only $25) // Earrings: Sugarfix via Target–only $12.99 // Necklace: Purple Peridot //  Sunnies: Quay–only $50! // Watch: Kate Spade (metal bandalmost identical) // Cuffs: Loren HopeJ. Crew Factory // Bracelet: c/o Southern Belle Glitz 
I’m not even going to lie about it–I love looking like an Easter egg in the springtime:) Which means pastels, pastels, and, oh, more pastels! Pastels look amazing on all skin tones. I love how happy the colors are.  This peplum top is the prettiest shade of mint.  It also comes in coral and is under $20. I paired it with my favorite lighter wash jeans. Definitely pick up a pair of light wash denim for spring if you don’t already have a pair in your closet.
I added my favorite necklace from Purple Peridot that’s more turquoise in color to add depth to the top of my outfit. FYI, you can save 10% with code PC10. It comes in 3 colors and is a true statement necklace. I wanted to wear these new flats, but they only have light blue and lavendar shades, which doesn’t truly match my outfit.  But I threw on this crossbody that totally pulled it all together! PS–through today, you can snag the flats for less than $12 with code ZZTREND! And just in case you didn’t know, Sugarfix released some new pieces at Target, including these striped earrings!  The earrings definitely add a quirk to this outfit that picks up the white background in the shoes so everything comes full-circle.
