It's that time of year where we all starting cleaning out our closets: switching out the faux furs and plaids (well, in my case, anyways) for fresh whites, brights, and pastels. So the Style By Fire gals Aurora Chan and Miranda Sam, Samantha Sito, and I pulled our pastels out of storage, and got together for a fun spring photoshoot with Jason of Aparte Photography!
I've always been cautious with wearing a lot of white or pastels for the obvious reason that paleness usually just makes it all look very, well, white, but lately I've been playing around with light colours again. I think I just need to stop worrying about what I think might not look good, and test out some new colour combos!
The beginning of a season is a great time to reassess your wardrobe, and maybe add some new styles or colours to the mix that you haven't tried (or been afraid to try) before. If you pick something in the store and think "hmm I shouldn't.." maybe it's still worth trying on! It's like when I go thrift shopping: if I'm ever in doubt, I still try it on, because you really can't tell when it's just on the hanger.
Don't forget to play around with draping and textures too! I loved Aurora's vinyl mint pencil skirt, Samantha's draped skirt, and Miranda's killer gladiator sandals. All awesome, fun elements that added some character to the usual "spring pastels".
