Casual pastel

Hello sweets! {this is my fav endearment by the way...lol}. So today's look is a bit on the casual side with two pastel colors going on; coral and mint. There is something about pastel colors that gives a colorful but yet a soft look. 

I mean imagine if two or more primary colors {red,yellow, blue...} were paired together, it would look rather loud and busy with a great clash. In the case of pastel colors, one could still get a way with pairing three colors and making the whole outfit look very subtle and classy. In fact, you  you could look as yummy as candy....lol! 

Am such a great sucker for dressing right for an occasion. So this look got me wearing a sleeveless coral shirt paired with a super high waist skinny jeans worn to a house party over summer. O how I luv anything high waist! It has a way of making almost any body structure look super shapy. I went for a mint/blue peep toe kitten heels to complete the pastel look and a cream bag for an easy breezy flow.

This time, I am definitely not forgetting to tell you about my accessories and make up....lol. Like I mentioned in my previous post, I love the look of my chain or necklace lying flat. I opted for a gold chunky chain worn underneath the shirts collar so as not to make the look a little bland. I decided to go for a very calm and almost natural looking makeup since I had couple of colors already and still wanted that chic but not too busy look! I had on very minimal eyeshadow using natural bronze colors from my sleek pallet and used a black eye liner to line my eyes and water line. I matted the look with Kiko's brownish nude  lip pencil and dabbed a clear lipgloss on it just to give it a bit of a shine. Chose sleek's coral blush to complete the look!
