While catching the last few days of spring, I paired two of my favorite pastel colors — blush and mint. I channeled Zardozi Magazine’s guide to wearing pastel here, which suggests mixing similar tones that are punctuated lightly with gold accents.

I bought this skirt on sale at Gilt and kept it in my closet forever. You know how it is. You finally decide to try a trend and the piece starts to collect dust until you find the perfect way to style it. I think I bought five midi skirts before I finally settled on this one. It is classic, pretty and versatile. You could pair it with a crop top, a blush shirt for a monochromatic look or even throw a leather jacket on top for a tougher look. I finally settled on this style. What do you think?

Midi skirts are a fabulous way to add volume. Just be sure to wear a fitted top to balance out the shape. I chose a button down for a classic look. Break up the top and bottom with a belt in a contrasting color or with an interesting texture like beadwork. Use a bright bag to bring in other pastel shades. And finish off with metallic heels.

I am also excited to share the stunning work by Taylor of Kalhu Photography. I had a wonderful time shooting with her at Shaw Park in Brentwood. Not only did she make me look beautiful in the afternoon light, she answered my long list of questions about photography. If you are looking for a friendly, dynamic and versatile photographer, check out her work here.
